Estimated cardiovascular risk and arteriogenic erectile dysfunction

Corona Giovanni , Mannucci Edoardo , Fisher Alessandra , Lotti Francesco , Balercia Giancarlo , Petrone Luisa , Forti Gianni , Maggi Mario

Objectives: Recommending general dynamic penile color doppler ultrasound (D-PCDU) screening in patients with erectile dysfunction (ED) has been questioned due to an inadequate cost-benefit ratio. The aim of the present study is to asses the validity of different risk scores in the identification of patients being screened for arteriogenic ED at D-PCDU.Design and methods: A consecutive series of 738 (mean age 53.6±9.2 years) patients with ED was stud...

Corona Giovanni , Mannucci Edoardo , Petrone Luisa , Mansani Riccardo , Balercia Giancarlo , Chairini Valerio , Forti Gianni , Maggi Mario

Objectives: The aim of present study is to determine psychobiological characteristics of sexual dysfunction (SD) associated with metabolic syndrome (MS; as defined by National Cholesterol Education Program’s Adult Treatment Panel III, NCEP-ATP-III criteria) in a consecutive series of 803 male out-patients.Methods: Several hormonal, biochemical and instrumental (penile doppler ultrasound, PDU) parameters were studied, along with psycho...

Objectives: The physiological role of prolactin in male sexual function has not been completely clarified. Aim of this study is the assessment of clinical features and of conditions associated with hyperprolactinemia in male patients consulting for sexual dysfunction.Design and methods: A consecutive series of 2146 (mean age 52.2±12.8 years) male patients with sexual dysfunction was studied.

NCEP-ATP-III defined metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes mellitus and prevalence of hypogonadism in male patients with sexual dysfunction

Corona Giovanni , Mannucci Edoardo , Petrone Luisa , Balercia Giancarlo , Paggi Federica , Fisher Alessandra , Lotti Francesco , Chiarini Valerio , Forti Gianni , Maggi Mario

Objectives: Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and metabolic syndrome (MetS) are characterized by insulin resistance and often associated with male hypogonadism. To discriminate the specific contribution of T2DM and MetS to male hypogonadism.Design and methods: A consecutive series of 1134 (mean age 52.1±13 years) male patients with sexual dysfunction was studied. Several hormonal and biochemical parameters were studied along with ANDROTEST, a 12-item ...

Corona Giovanni , Mannucci Edoardo , Petrone Luisa , Lotti Francesco , Fisher Alessandra D , Balercia Giancarlo , Chairini Valerio , Forti Gianni , Maggi Mario

Objectives: The aim of present study was to verify possible differences in the prevalence of vasculogenic ED and hypogonadism comparing two distinct new definitions of MetS, as National Cholesterol Education Program-Third Adult Treatment Panel (NCEP-ATPIII) and International diabetes Federation (IDF) in patients with sexual dysfunction.Methods: Several hormonal, biochemical and instrumental (penile doppler ultrasound) parameters were studied. ANDROTEST S...

Androtest: a structured interview for the screening of hypogonadism in patients with sexual dysfunction

Corona Giovanni , Petrone Luisa , Mannucci Edoardo , Fisher Alessandra D , Chairini Valerio , Balercia Giancarlo , Forti Gianni , Maggi Mario

Objectives: Detecting hypogonadism is crucial in patients with sexual dysfunctions because hypogonadism can have a causal role for them and testosterone (T) substitution represents a milestone for the therapy. At present, three different inventories have been developed for screening of hypogonadism in aging male. All these instruments demonstrated a good sensitivity but low specificity. No inventories are available for the screening of hypogonadism in patients with sexual dysf...

Assessment of the relational factor in male patients consulting for sexual dysfunction: the concept of couple sexual dysfunction

Corona Giovanni , Petrone Luisa , Mannucci Edoardo , Magini Angela , Lotti Francesco , Ricca Valdo , Chiarini Valerio , Forti Gianni , Maggi Mario

Objectives: To date it is not clear to which extent a clinical, or even a subclinical, sexual dysfunction in the female partner might associate with erectile dysfunction (ED) in the male partner. The present study is aimed at the assessment of clinical features of ED associated with relational disturbances.Methods: In a consecutive series of 1140 male subjects reporting a stable couple relationship we evaluated the impact of relational factors, as assess...

Sexual dysfunctions in subjects with Klinefelter's syndrome

Corona Giovanni , Petrone Luisa , Paggi Francesca , Lotti Francesco , Boddi Valentina , Fisher Alessandra , Vignozzi Linda , Balercia Giancarlo , Sforza Alessandra , Forti Gianni , Mannucci Edoardo , Maggi Mario

Introduction: While the association of Klinefelter’s syndrome (KS) with infertility is well known, very few investigations have evaluated the prevalence of sexual dysfunction in KS. The aim of the present study is to systematically analyse the prevalence of KS in a consecutive series of adult male patients consulting for sexual problems and to investigate its specific correlates.Methods: Among a consecutive series of 1386 patients (mean age 48.9&#17...

Objectives: Erectile dysfunction (ED) is often associated with a wide array of psychiatric symptoms, although few studies systematically address their specific association with ED determinants. Aim of this study is to explore the relationship between ED and different psychopathological symptoms.Design and methods: A consecutive series of 1388 (mean age 51±13 years) male patients with ED was studied. Several hormonal and biochemical parameters were i...
