Epidemiology regarding penile prosthetic surgery.

Epidemiology regarding penile prosthetic surgery. Asian J Androl. 2019 Nov 29;: Authors: Saavedra-Belaunde JA, Clavell-Hernandez J, Wang R Abstract With the onset of a metabolic syndrome epidemic and the increasing life expectancy, erectile dysfunction (ED) has become a more common condition. As incidence and prevalence increase, the medical field is focused on providing more appropriate therapies. It is common knowledge that ED is a chronic condition that is also associated with a myriad of other disorders. Conditions such as aging, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, obesity, prostatic hypertrophy, and prostate cancer, among others, have a direct implication on the onset and progression of ED. Characterization and recognition of risk factors may help clinicians recognize and properly treat patients suffering from ED. One of the most reliable treatments for ED is penile prosthetic surgery. Since the introduction of the penile prosthesis (PP) in the early seventies, this surgical procedure has improved the lives of thousands of men, with reliable and satisfactory results. The aim of this review article is to characterize the epidemiology of men undergoing penile prosthetic surgery, with a discussion about the most common conditions involved in the development of ED, and that ultimately drive patients into electing to undergo PP placement.

FOXP3 (Forkhead box protein P3), a member of the forkhead–winged-helix family, is the pivotal transcriptional factor of Treg. The expression, post-translational modifications and protein complex of FOXP3 present a great impact on the functional stability and immune plasticity of Treg in vivo. In part...

ConclusionWe present the first risk score model to predict IGBC. The model estimates the expected risk for the individual patient and may help to optimize treatment strategies.

ConclusionsThis is the largest series to date reporting>30-day follow-up for patients undergoing venous ablation procedures while receiving anticoagulation and the longest follow-up reported of any series. Durability, safety, and efficacy of vein ablation in patients receiving anticoagulation are comparable to those in control patients. Anticoagulation should not be considered a contraindication to endothermal ablation of the GSV or SSV for symptomatic venous reflux.

Authors: Zhang J, Si J, Gan L, Guo M, Yan J, Chen Y, Wang F, Xie Y, Wang Y, Zhang H Abstract Cervical cancer is the second most common malignant tumour threatening women's health. In recent years, heavy-ion beam therapy is becoming a newly emerging therapeutic mean of cancer; however, radio-resistance and radiation-induced damage constitute the main obstacles for curative treatment of cervical cancer. Therefore, to identify the radiosensitizers is essential. Here, we investigated the effects of Wnt signalling pathway on the response of 12C6+ radiation in HeLa cells. XAV939, an inhibitor of Wnt signalling pathway, w...

The considered different human communities are crossed by a running water which is contaminated by the vibrio cholerae bacterium. The formulated model for each community which is an initial/boundary-value problem constituted of four parabolic partial differential equations, integrates antibiotic treatment, hydration the...

Use of MRI helps differentiate between those with good prognosis, which can be offered upfront surgery and the poor prognostic cases where treatment intensification is needed. MRI identified poor prognostic factors are threatened or involved mesorectal fascia, T3 tumors with> 5mm e...

It is now known that technology facilitates intimate partner violence by enabling perpetrators new ways of abusing, controlling, harassing, and isolating their current or former partner. However, there has been a tendency to neglect consideration of the promise technology holds in combating intimate partner violence.Understanding how technology is being misused to facilitate intimate partner violence is critical ...

The prognostic value of COL genes has been shown for several malignancies. In the present study, we analyzed multiple microarray datasets using the Oncomine database to identify alterations of COL genes in gastric cancer (GC). Gene express...
