New Research: Penile Implants and Pain Management
An estimated 40% of men over 40 in mainland China have some degree of erectile dysfunction (ED), according to a recent study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
The rate was calculated using data from over 5,000 men living in 30 provinces and autonomies and is the first nationwide population-based study for this age group, the authors noted.
The study subjects did not constitute a random sample, however.
The findings showed that ED became more prevalent as men got older. It was also more common in men who smoked, had diabetes, were estranged from their spouse, or had lower urinary tract symptoms related to an enlarged prostate.
More details on the study, including other sexual dysfunctions reported by the men and the authors' thoughts on ED education in China, can be found here.
Please note that a new research summary has been posted to the ISSM website.
"Pain Management in Penile Prosthetic Surgery: A Review of the Literature" by Dr. Lael Reinstatler, et al. was published online in July in Sexual Medicine Reviews.
The literature review covers various aspects urologic pain in men receiving penile implants, such as surgical technique, use of local anesthetics, intraoperative and postoperative pain management, and penile prosthetic outcomes.
