Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction and Treatment: An Analysis of Associated Chronic Health Conditions - Beyond the Abstract

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common health condition that has steadily increased in incidence within the United States. In addition to impacting a man’s quality of life and self-perception, it can be an important indication of other underlying health concerns. As chronic diseases such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, and hypertension often have similar pathophysiology to ED. Because ED often holds a social stigma, patients will delay in seeking treatment from healthcare professionals. This is concerning as ED diagnosis in the clinical setting could allow for earlier detection of comorbid conditions. Our study found that a diagnosis of ED was strongly associated with the concomitant diagnoses of depression, hypertension, diabetes, as indicated by prior studies. It was also associated with several autoimmune diseases, which is a lesser-known association.

Efficacy of Penile Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy and Determinants of Treatment Response in Taiwanese Patients with Erectile Dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) remains an emotional wrench to patients and a therapeutic challenge to urologists in andrology clinics worldwide. This is, in part, related to refraction to, or transient effect of phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors (PDE5i), coupled with patients' dissatisfaction with this treatment modality.

Indications and characteristics of penile traction and vacuum erection devices.

A variety of devices are available for the management of patients with erectile dysfunction, Peyronie's disease, penile dysmorphophobia, for support before and after penile prosthesis insertion, and after radical prostatectomy.

Relationship between Dietary Patterns with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia and Erectile Dysfunction: A Collaborative Review.

Interest in the role of dietary patterns has been consistently emerging in recent years due to much research that has documented the impact of metabolism on erectile dysfunction (ED) and/or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Surgical treatments for obstructive sleep apnea decrease the risk of erectile dysfunction: a nationwide cohort study.

It has been reported that the risk of erectile dysfunction (ED) is significantly higher in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), compared with patients without OSA. However, there is limited evidence on whether surgical treatments in patients with OSA could decrease ED risk.

Erectile dysfunction in nonmuscle-invasive bladder cancer patients before and after transurethral resection (TUR) of bladder tumor in China.

The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of erectile dysfunction (ED) in nonmuscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) patients before and after transurethral resection (TUR) in China. Clinical data from 165 male patients with NMIBC who received adjuvant intravesical chemotherapy after TUR in Neijiang First People's Hospital (Neijiang, China) between January 2010 and June 2019 were retrospectively reviewed.

Physiology of Erection and Pathophysiology of Erectile Dysfunction.

The science of penile erection, including recent advances in its molecular physiology and neuroanatomic pathways, is described. The pathophysiology of erectile dysfunction is presented, acknowledging associated disease states, and accordingly follows a practical classification scheme: vasculogenic, neurogenic, endocrine, and psychogenic.

Comparison of critical biomarkers in 2 erectile dysfunction models based on GEO and NOS-cGMP-PDE5 pathway.

Erectile dysfunction is a disease commonly caused by diabetes mellitus (DMED) and cavernous nerve injury (CNIED). Bioinformatics analyses including differentially expressed genes (DEGs), enriched functions and pathways (EFPs), and protein-protein interaction (PPI) networks were carried out in DMED and CNIED rats in this study.

Preservation of Sexual Function 5 Years After Water Vapor Thermal Therapy for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) and ejaculatory dysfunction (EjD) are known outcomes of traditional surgery and some pharmacotherapies for treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Minimally invasive treatment options, including water vapor thermal therapy (WVTT), are now available to treat lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to BPH.

Low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction: an overview of systematic reviews.

Low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT) may be a successful complementary treatment approach for erectile dysfunction (ED). In this study, we aimed to review and summarize the research evidence from systematic reviews (SRs)/meta-analyses (MAs) regarding the clinical effectiveness of LI-ESWT for ED.
