Purpose: We examined whether patients are appropriately screened for previous prolonged erections or priapism and counseled about trazodone complications, specifically prolonged erections and priapism, prior to trazodone treatment. Materials and methods: We identified patients under the age of 50 on trazodone as of February 27, 2019 at the VA Ne...
Article
Introduction Pharmacologically induced priapism is now the most common cause of priapism, with approximately 50% of drug-related priapism being attributed to antipsychotic usage. The majority of pharmacologic priapism is believed to result in ischemic priapism (low flow), which may lead to irreversible complications, such as erectile dysfunction. I...
Article
Introduction A variety of factors that can influence patient satisfaction after inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) surgery, including patient expectations before surgery, intraoperative complications, and perceived penile shortening and partner satisfaction after surgery. While patient satisfaction rates with IPP are high, there are several reporte...

Introduction: For the estimated 15 million cancer survivors in the United States, access to accurate information regarding quality of life issues such as sexual health and fertility preservation is a very important part of cancer recovery. Aim: Because National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer centers (CCs) are leaders of cancer care, we...
Chapter
The etiology of male infertility can often be identified as either genetic, endocrine, or anatomic, and appropriately targeted therapy or alternative conception treatment options can be provided. Idiopathic male infertility is the diagnosis given to patients when no identifiable male infertility factor is found but abnormalities are still present o...
Article
Primary adrenal leiomyosarcoma, a malignant soft tissue tumour originating from the smooth muscle of the inferior vena cava and adrenal vein, is rarely described in the literature. Cases are often diagnosed at an advanced stage as the tumour is not hormone-producing. We describe a 70-year-old man who presented with lower extremity swelling and abdo...

... Based on this proposal, nearly all the subsequent studies were conducted using T/E 2 ratio <10 as the indication of AIs treatment for male subfertile patients, which generally showed effectiveness both in normalization of T/E 2 ratios and semen parameters (18)(19)(20). Nevertheless, no study has evaluated the effect of AIs, especially the more selective and more widely-used, non-steroidal AIs, in patients with T/E 2 ratio >10. ...
... In general, videos from professional sources with medical expertise generated a lower level of user interaction compared with sources without medical expertise. These contrasts in popularity-driven measures indicate that videos from professional sources are surprisingly less popular than videos from laypersons (15,16). This indicates that medical expertise generates a lower level of user interaction relative to non-medical sources, which might be due to the use of technical terms that might not be understood by the general population. ...
... Anyone easily uploads every kind of health-related content on YouTube uncontrolled, cost-free, and unaudited manner. According to research by Warren et al., most YouTube content directly connected to men's health is unreliable, and reliable videos are not seen more frequently than unreliable ones (10). Similarly, in this study, it was seen that videos with low-quality content had higher viewing rates. ...
... Based on these premises, it appears that, among the high-risk list of drugs here analysed, trazodone generated indeed the strongest SDR, whilst olanzapine and tadalafil seemed somewhat more prone to cause priapism vs. the other drugs of the database (except for trazodone). The propensity of trazodone to elicit priapism is already well documented in the literature [19][20][21]. Although a number of medications identified in this list may be prescribed by sexual medicine specialists, most of these drugs are typically prescribed by psychiatrists and primary care doctors. ...
... "stuttering priapism") shares its aetiology with ischaemic priapism and frequently progresses to a complete form [1]. Although idiopathic episodes of priapism are common, pharmacologically-induced priapism is now considered the predominant aetiology [6]. In fact, priapism has been related to a number of commonly prescribed medications, as well as illegal drugs [1]. ...
... Inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) surgery represents an option for men with erectile dysfunction refractory to medical management [5]. While overall satisfaction with penile prosthesis approaches 98% in some series, one of the greatest predictive factors for dissatisfaction post-prosthesis placement is perceived loss of length or girth [6][7][8]. In those men with multiple risk factors and underlying pathology for loss of penile length, techniques to optimize penile length and girth are crucial to ensure ultimate patient and partner satisfaction with their prostheses. ...
... Though not all videos performed well; the video "Movember & why you should support men's health" was part of an educational campaign and did not receive as many lifetime views as the other 5 videos. A recent study by Warren and colleagues showed that YouTube videos featuring physicians were of significantly higher quality and less biased, but had lower viewership compared to videos not featuring a physician (9). Despite prior evidence suggesting content disseminated by physicians has its challenges in reaching successful viewership, our data demonstrate that streaming videos created by an academic health system can have prodigious reach, though not all content may be equivalently successful in achieving high viewership numbers. ...
... Диагностика лейомиосаркомы надпочечников на ранних стадиях заболевания затруднена, что связано с отсутствием патогномоничной клинической картины, биомаркеров, признаков гормональной активности [18][19][20][21][22]. Для лейомиосаркомы надпочечников характерен широкий спектр симптомов, что связано со сдавлением соседних органов или метастазированием в кости, легкие и печень [4,[23][24][25]. Одной из наиболее частых жалоб у пациентов с лейомиосаркомой надпочечников является боль в боку или в животе (83%) [4,8,[26][27][28][29]. Другие частые симптомы, встречающиеся у 50% пациентов данной группы, в виде наличия отеков нижних конечностей, варикозного расширения вен передней брюшной стенки, «паучьих ангиом», парестезий в конечностях связаны с прорастанием опухоли в нижнюю полую вену [4,26,29]. ...
... While further immunological methods could and should be explored to induce macrophages to phagocytose collagen coated rVk6Wil fibrils, we sought to take advantage of the FDA approved collagenase, Xiaflex. Xiaflex is approved for the treatment of Dupuytren's contracture and Peyronie's disease [54,55]. Using highly purified C. histolyticum collagenase, we demonstrated that treatment of collagen coated rVk6Wil fibrils completely reversed the inhibition of phagocytosis. ...
