Guidelines on male sexual dysfunction: erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.
TLDR
The updated version of 2009 European Association of Urology guidelines on ED and PE are presented to present, summarising the present information onED and PE. Expand
Retropubic, laparoscopic, and robot-assisted radical prostatectomy: a systematic review and cumulative analysis of comparative studies.
TLDR
LRP and RALP were more time consuming than RRP, especially in the initial steps of the learning curve, but blood loss, transfusion rates, catheterisation time, hospitalisation duration, and complication rates all favoured LRP, and LRP showed similar continence and potency rates. Expand
Effect of dutasteride on the risk of prostate cancer.
TLDR
Over the course of the 4-year study period, dutasteride reduced the risk of incident prostate cancer detected on biopsy and improved the outcomes related to benign prostatic hyperplasia. Expand
The effects of combination therapy with dutasteride and tamsulosin on clinical outcomes in men with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia: 4-year results from the CombAT study.
TLDR
The 4-yr CombAT data provide support for the long-term use of dutasteride and tamsulosin combination therapy in men with moderate-to-severe LUTS due to BPH and prostatic enlargement. Expand
Holmium laser enucleation versus transurethral resection of the prostate: results from a 2-center prospective randomized trial in patients with obstructive benign prostatic hyperplasia.
TLDR
HoLEP and TURP were equally effective for relieving obstruction and lower urinary tract symptoms and HoLEP was associated with shorter catheterization time and hospital stay. Expand
The Premature Ejaculation Prevalence and Attitudes (PEPA) survey: prevalence, comorbidities, and professional help-seeking.
TLDR
PE is a highly prevalent sexual problem, with significant sexual and psychological comorbidities, and most men with PE do not seek assistance from their physician, and those who do are not satisfied with the results. Expand
Meta-analysis of functional outcomes and complications following transurethral procedures for lower urinary tract symptoms resulting from benign prostatic enlargement.
TLDR
A meta-analysis demonstrates statistically comparable efficacy and overall morbidity for MISTs versus contemporary TURP and feels that the individual patient's clinical profile should be carefully assessed to identify the most appropriate transurethral technique. Expand
Systematic review and meta-analysis of studies reporting urinary continence recovery after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy.
TLDR
This systematic review of literature shows, for the first time, a statistically significant advantage in favor of RARP in comparison with both RRP and LRP in terms of 12-mo urinary continence recovery. Expand
Systematic review and meta-analysis of studies reporting potency rates after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy.
TLDR
This update of previous systematic reviews of the literature showed, for the first time, a significant advantage in favor of RARP in comparison with RRP in terms of 12-mo potency rates. Expand
Updated nomogram predicting lymph node invasion in patients with prostate cancer undergoing extended pelvic lymph node dissection: the essential importance of percentage of positive cores.
TLDR
The first update of a nomogram predicting the presence of LNI in patients treated with ePLND is reported, which maintained high accuracy, even in more contemporary patients (87.6%) and should be mandatory in any LNI prediction model. Expand
