OBJECTIVE To describe the association between age and several aspects of sexual functioning in men older than 50 years of age. DESIGN Cross-sectional analysis of(More)
The Global Study of Sexual Attitudes and Behaviors (GSSAB) is an international survey of various aspects of sex and relationships among adults aged 40-80 y. An analysis of GSSAB data was performed to estimate the prevalence and correlates of sexual problems in 13,882 women and 13,618 men from 29 countries. The overall response rate was modest; however, the(More)
This study compared the risks of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in people with schizophrenia who use antipsychotic medications to risks in individuals without schizophrenia in a large managed care organization. A sample of 1920 schizophrenia patients was matched by age, sex, date, and health plan to 9600 persons randomly selected from the health(More)
BACKGROUND Studies have shown that patients with schizophrenia have higher rates of cardiovascular disease and mortality compared with the general population. However, population-based data on the prevalence, incidence, and mortality of cardiovascular disease are needed. METHOD In this retrospective cohort study, the Saskatchewan Health databases were(More)
The prevalence and correlates of erectile dysfunction (ED) in developing countries are largely unknown. Our objectives were to determine the prevalence and associated factors of ED in three countries (Pakistan, Egypt, Nigeria) that represent very different cultures. Men 35-70y of age seeking primary medical care answered a structured questionnaire adapted(More)
Two hundred seventy-nine consecutive patients with Stage II osteogenic sarcoma of the appendicular skeleton treated between 1976 and 1986 were studied to identify predictors of long-term survival. Survival was 77% and 73% at 5 and 10 years, respectively, with continuously disease-free survival being 70% and 69%. On univariate analysis, the most significant(More)

Ninety-three consecutive prosthetic reconstructions performed for limb salvage after the resection of sarcomas of the lower extremity were reviewed to determine how long the reconstructions lasted, how successful they were in avoiding amputation in the long term, how significant a problem was aseptic loosening, and what was the associated patient survival.(More)
Twelve patients who had a malignant tumor of the distal end of the femur were treated with a Van Nes tibial rotationplasty. The survival rates were comparable with those for above-the-knee amputees and patients who had an endoprosthetic replacement. The results of functional testing showed that these patients performed as well as those who had(More)
