Authors: Loh HH, Yee A, Loh HS, Kanagasundram S, Francis B, Lim LL Abstract PURPOSE: Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a common disorder characterized by clinical or biochemical hyperandrogenism and ovulary dysfunction. Female sexual dysfunction (FSD) adversely affects quality of life and interpersonal relationships. We aimed to compare the prevalence of FSD in women with and without PCOS. METHODS: We pooled data from 28 observational studies involving 6256 women. Apart from the total prevalence of FSD, subgroup analyses based on different PCOS diagnostic criteria and obesity status (body mass index [BMI]&t...

CONCLUSIONS: Trials of antidepressants may be driven mainly by commercial interests, focusing on prevalent diseases and everyday problems. No one can live a full life without experiencing several of the problems for which these drugs were tested. Antidepressants, sometimes called happy pills, could be seen as the modern version of Aldous Huxley's soma pill intended to keep everyone happy in the "Brave New World".

Authors: Amarenco G, Kerdraon J, Chesnel C, Le Breton F, Sheikh Ismaël S, Turmel N, Hentzen C Abstract OBJECTIVE: Cortical somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) are usually used to test the integrity of lemniscal pathways and thus provide arguments for the neurogenic etiology of sensory symptoms. For example, PES by perineal stimulation (SEP-P) has been shown to be altered in incontinence or neurogenic sexual dysfunction. We wanted to verify the integrity, structure and amplitude of far-field responses of PES-P in two conditions, the first without feeling the need to urinate (S0), the second with urgency (US)....

Authors: Sangondimath G, Mallepally AR, Mascharenhas A, Chhabra HS Abstract Study Design: Retrospective cohort study. Purpose: To analyze the clinical and sphincteric outcomes and the extent of sexual dysfunction (SD) in subjects with cauda equina syndrome (CES) and to assess their correlation with patient-reported and clinical/urodynamic parameters. Overview of Literature: Despite vast literature present for CES, extent of the problem of SD in CES patients has not received enough attention as reflected by the limited information in literature. Little is known about exact prevalence at presentation or about...

We describe the progression of clinical features to aid the diagnosis of MSA early in the disease course. We go on to describe the levels of diagnostic certainty and we discuss MSA subtypes that do not fit into the current diagnostic criteria, highlighting the complexity of the disease as well as the need for revised diagnostic tools. Second, we describe the pathology, clinical description, and investigations of cardiovascular autonomic failure, urogenital and sexual dysfunction, orthostatic hypotension, and respiratory and REM-sleep behavior disorders, which may precede the motor presentation by months or years. Their pre...
