OBJECTIVES Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), which are often caused by benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), and sexual dysfunction are common in older men, with an overall prevalence of > 50% in men aged > 50 years. Men with LUTS have been reported to experience sexual dysfunction, including ejaculatory loss, painful ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction.(More)
CONTEXT Erectile dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation (PE) are the two most prevalent male sexual dysfunctions. OBJECTIVE To present the updated version of 2009 European Association of Urology (EAU) guidelines on ED and PE. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION A systematic review of the recent literature on the epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of ED and PE(More)
BACKGROUND Tadalafil improved lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) suggestive of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH; LUTS/BPH) in clinical studies but has not been evaluated together with an active control in an international clinical study. OBJECTIVE Assess tadalafil or tamsulosin versus placebo for LUTS/BPH. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS A(More)
INTRODUCTION Over the past 20 years our knowledge of premature ejaculation (PE) has significantly advanced. Specifically, we have witnessed substantial progress in understanding the physiology of ejaculation, clarifying the real prevalence of PE in population-based studies, reconceptualizing the definition and diagnostic criterion of the disorder, assessing(More)
OBJECTIVES Diagnosis of premature ejaculation (PE) for clinical trial purposes has typically relied on intravaginal ejaculation latency time (IELT) for entry, but this parameter does not capture the multidimensional nature of PE. Therefore, the aim was to develop a brief, multidimensional, psychometrically validated instrument for diagnosing PE status. (More)
Retrograde transneuronal tracing with rabies virus from the left bulbospongiosus muscle (BS) was used to identify the neural circuits underlying its peripheral and central activation. Rats were killed at 2, 3, 4, and 5 days post-inoculation (p.i.). Rabies immunolabelling was combined with immunohistochemical detection of choline acetyltransferase and(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a contemporary, evidence-based definition of premature ejaculation (PE). METHODS There are several definitions of PE; the most commonly quoted, the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - 4th Edition - Text Revision, and other definitions of PE, are all authority-based rather than(More)
CONTEXT This review focuses on the relationship among sexual dysfunction (SD), lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and related therapies. OBJECTIVE We reviewed the current literature to provide an overview of current data regarding epidemiology and pathophysiology of SD and LUTS. Moreover, we analysed the impact(More)
The CDKL5 gene has been implicated in the molecular etiology of early-onset intractable seizures with infantile spasms (IS), severe hypotonia and atypical Rett syndrome (RTT) features. So far, 48 deleterious alleles have been reported in the literature. We screened the CDKL5 gene in a cohort of 177 patients with early-onset seizures, including 30 men and 10(More)
CONTEXT Penile curvature can be congenital or acquired. Acquired curvature is secondary due to La Peyronie (Peyronie's) disease. OBJECTIVE To provide clinical guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of penile curvature. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION A systematic literature search on the epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of penile curvature was performed.(More)
