Comparison of impact of monopolar versus bipolar resection of the prostate on erectile function in patients with benign hyperplasia of the prostate

ConclusionNo statistical difference could be detected between monopolar and bipolar TURP, regarding the risk of developing post-operative ED. However, a higher incidence of ED should be anticipated in patients with DM, intraoperative capsular perforation and preoperative use of PDE5I.

AbstractIntroductionMaternal perception of fetal movements has long been considered an indicator of fetal well ‐being. A sudden decrease in the number of fetal movements is suggestive of fetal compromise. We aimed to determine whether the maternal perception of reduced fetal movements (RFM) is associated with placental pathological lesions in a low‐risk term population.Material and methodsOur study was a case ‐control study that was performed in a single university center. Placental histopathology, maternal demographics, labor characteristics, and neonatal outcomes of term, singleton pregnancies with maternal percept...

It is anticipated that those electronic products can be easily manufactured by modern wet-processing techniques, e.g. ink-jet printing and ‘roll-to-roll’ coating methods. However, issues related to po...

MustrophAbstractEmpagliflozin, a selective sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, has been shown to reduce mortality and hospitalization for heart failure in diabetic patients in the EMPA-REG-OUTCOME trial (Zinman et al., 2015). Surprisingly, dapagliflozin, another SGLT2 inhibitor, exerted comparable effects on clinical endpoints even in the absence of diabetes mellitus (DAPA-HF trial) McMurray et al. (2019). There is a myriad of suggested under...

YacoutAbstractAim of the workNeuroinflammation can arise from metabolic disturbances accompanying type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) with an implication of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 (IDO1). The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory potentials of melatonin (Mel) can amend diabetic complications. Here, we examined the effect of exogenous melatonin on neuroinflammation in high fat diet (HFD)-induced T2DM rats.Main methodsTwenty-one adult male Sprague-dawley rats were div...

Background: The influence of prolongation of hemodialysis (HD) period for erectile dysfunction (ED) has not been well evaluated. We evaluated the effects of various factors including hemodialysis duration for ED in hemodialysis patients. Methods: One hundred seventy-eight HD patients including 50 patients who received HD more than 10   years were enrolled in this study. The questionnaire of the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF)-5 in Japanese language was used for evaluation of ED status in this cohort. Various clinical factors of these patients were collected from review of medical records, and the relat...

After following your advice with food, the doctor visits have stopped and I have a normal husband back. “Prior to meeting him, he has always had issues with his weight and gut. He would exercise to the point of passing out and it just wouldn’t go anywhere. When I met him 5 years ago, he was jogging every night and exercising.
