Seeing blue after the little blue pill: Visual disturbances in Viagra users

(Frontiers) Sildenafil, a common treatment for erectile dysfunction, is typically safe with limited side effects. However, a new study reports persistent visual side-effects, including light sensitivity and color vision impairment, in a group of first-time users who took the highest recommended dose. Fortunately, these symptoms cleared up within 21 days for all the patients and appear to be very rare. Due to this, the study cautions that first-time Viagra users should start with a low dose.

To the Editor The study by Grashow et al on the association of a history of concussion symptoms with self-reported low testosterone levels and erectile dysfunction (ED) seems to suggest that concussion leads to persistent pituitary damage. The body of research regarding traumatic brain injury (TBI) and pituitary dysfunction, including evidence cited by Grashow et al, supports an association between moderate to severe TBI and hypopituitarism, but to our knowledge, research specifically examining the association between concussion and hypopituitarism is lacking. Although pituitary dysfunction is not uncommon following modera...

AbstractTestosterone (T) plays a pivotal role in coordinating a series of psychological, cognitive and physical events that might (or might not) culminate in male sexual activity. In fact, T deficiency is associated, in a statistically significant way, with several sexual dysfunctions including erectile dysfunction (ED), reduction of spontaneous erection and hypoactive sexual desire (HSD). Although these associations are statistically significant, there is debate if they are also clinically meaningful. In addition, sexual dysfunctions are present also in several metabolic conditions ‐ such as type 2 diabetes mellitus and...

Purpose of review Several imaging modalities exist for the assessment of Peyronie's disease. However, comprehensive recommendations for using these objective modalities based on large-scale evidence-based studies do not yet exist. Our objective is to evaluate current imaging techniques and provide a model that we follow in our clinic in the workup and management of Peyronie's disease. Recent findings Computed tomography and radiography excellently visualize penile plaque calcifications, and MRI adeptly identifies plaques in complex locations, such as the corporal septum. Ultrasonography has extensive applications in p...
