This study was aimed at determining the serological markers (IgG, IgM and IgA) of Chlamydia trachomatis, evaluate the association between Chlamydia trachomatis infection and the sociodemographic characteristics and clinical diagnosis of the participants. This was a cross sectional hospital-based study in which blood samples from 145 consenting participants were tested for IgG, IgM and IgA antibodies against Chlamydia trachomatis using enzyme linked immunosorbent assay and their clinical diagnosis, retrieved from their case notes. The cumulative prevalence of seropositivity for Chlamydia trachomatis (IgG, IgM, IgA) was 112 ...

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...

Purpose of review The sensitivity of semen analysis for detection of infertility remains low. Many factors not measured in traditional semen analysis may contribute to male factor infertility. DNA fragmentation, oxidative stress, and sperm aneuploidy are three factors that may contribute further information to the evaluation when semen analysis is inconclusive. Recent findings DNA fragmentation measures the destruction of and failure to repair damage to DNA. Increased DNA fragmentation has been used as a marker for oxidative stress as well as toxic exposure. The oxidative stress adduct measures DNA aberrations, which ...

Purpose of review To review the evidence regarding a decrease in worldwide sperm parameters and discuss potential causative factors. Recent findings The topic of worldwide decline in sperm parameters is contentious; however, recent high-quality studies have demonstrated that there is indeed a decline in sperm parameters. Several retrospective and basic science studies have shown possible links for this decline in sperm parameters such as obesity, diet, and environmental toxins. Summary There exist substantial data to suggest a decline in sperm counts over time. Although causative factors have yet to be fully elucid...

Purpose of review In this review, we synthesize the most current data on strategies for the prevention and reduction of infections in men undergoing penile prosthesis surgery. We highlight important strategies for preventing infections along every step from patient selection, to the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative states. Recent findings Over the last decade, significant advances have been made to help minimize penile implant infections, with the most impactful likely being the introduction of antibiotic coated penile implants. Although this has led to infection rates lower than 0.5% being reported in s...

Purpose of review Recently in October 2019 a Global Consensus Position on the use of Testosterone Therapy for Women was published. The use of testosterone and other agents for female sexual dysfunction (FSD) is an important topic for the urologist focusing on sexual health. This review describes the known causes for FSD, and discusses the role of androgens in this disorder, the evidence for using testosterone treatment, and other current and emerging therapies. Recent findings A recent meta-analysis, published in The Lancet Diabetes &Endocrinology evaluated a total of 36 randomized control trials spanning 1990&nda...
