[Reflexions on 50 Years of Sexual Medicine in Urology Focusing on Male Sexual Dysfunctions]. Aktuelle Urol. 2019 Jul;50(3):248-267 Authors: Porst H Abstract Diagnosis and therapy of male sexual dysfunctions made enormous progress over the last 50 years. Starting with the development of hydraulic penile implants in 1973 meanwhile several effective and well-tolerated conservative treatments such as the PDE-5 inhibitors avanafil, sildenafil, tadalafil and vardenafil, transurethral PGE1 (MUSE) and self-injection therapy with a variety of vasoactive drugs like alprostadil, papaverine/phentolamine (bimix), PGE1/papaverine/phentolamine (trimix/triple drug) or VIP (aviptadil)/phentolamine-Invicorp) have been developed for the treatment of ED. More recently Li-ESWT has provided impressive results both in PDE-5i responders and non-responders and partly also in Peyronie's disease. Regarding premature ejaculation (PE) meanwhile with oral dapoxetine and topical lidocaine/prilocaine spray two effective treatment options are officially available which may be combined in men with severe PE and with PDE-5 inhibitors in men with PE and ED. Hormonal disorders such as hypogonadism, hyperprolactinemia and thyroid disorders may be linked to male sexual disorders and successfully treated with T-substitution, prolactin inhibitors or thyroid specific medications.Whereas vascular surgery for ED such as deep dorsal vein ligation/resection or arterial revascularization procedures d...

Authors: Ashrafi MR, Amanat M, Garshasbi M, Kameli R, Nilipour Y, Heidari M, Rezaei Z, Tavasoli AR Abstract Introduction: Leukodystrophies constitute heterogenous group of rare heritable disorders primarily affecting the white matter of central nervous system. These conditions are often under-appreciated among physicians. The first clinical manifestations of leukodystrophies are often nonspecific and can occur in different ages from neonatal to late adulthood periods. The diagnosis is, therefore, challenging in most cases.Area covered: Herein, the authors discuss different aspects of leukodystrophies. The authors used...

ConclusionsWe hypothesize that itaconate transiently inhibits SDH to gradually “awaken” mitochondrial function upon reperfusion that minimizes ROS and tissue damage. Collectively, our data indicate that itaconate acts as a mitochondrial regulator that controls redox metabolism to improve physiological outcomes associated with IR injury.

Thin-film encapsulation is known as a powerful approach to notably enhance the operational stability of perovskite solar cells in humid environment. However, encapsulation layers with ideal gas barrier performance always require harsh fabrication conditions with high tempe...

Herein, by using aramid nanofibers (ANFs) as multifunctional nano-additives, comprehensively-upgraded polyethylene oxide (PEO)-LiTFSI electrolytes with 3D ANF network frames are achieved through the hydrogen-bond interactions between 1D ANFs. The hydrogen-bond interactions between...

SenetakisAbstractIn the present study, experiments were conducted using an advanced micromechanical apparatus investigating the tribological behavior of interfaces between an organic shale against two different proppant simulants; one composed of Leighton Buzzard sand (LBS) and the other composed of glass beads. A negative correlation was observed between the coefficient of friction and the magnitude of normal load from organic shale-proppant interface shearing tests. At relatively low shearing velocities (0.2&nda...

This study evaluated a novel zwitterion-grafted TFC RO as a mean to address organic fouling for water reclamation. The membrane exhibited the best permeability at the grafting condition of 45 °C in 1 h. This modified membrane consistently possessed improved antifouling ability irrespective of organic foulants. Among individual foulants, surfactant Dodecyl Trimethyl Ammonium Chloride (DTAC) posed the worst fouling potential due to its low molecular weight and positive charge, whereas fouling induced by other substances were relatively analogous and minor. In the mixture of DTAC and proteins, the former played a key ...
