SMSNA's Fall Scientific Meeting to be Held on State-of-the-Art Technology Virtual Platform
Peyronie's Disease: Girth Changes Not as Bothersome
The Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) will hold its 21st Annual Fall Scientific Meeting online this year.
"Although this was not an easy decision, the challenges of protecting the health and safety of you and your loved ones, as well as travel restrictions by many parent institutions, made it clear that this was the right path," wrote SMSNA President Hossein Sadeghi-Nejad, MD, FACS in a welcome statement.
"Using a state-of-the-art technology virtual platform and relying on your continued support and academic contributions, we are confident that we may have a broader reach this year and many who may not have been able to travel to our in-person meeting may now be able to attend,” Dr. Sadeghi-Nejad added.
The meeting will take place November 9-15, 2020. See more details.
HSDD Webinar is August 27
For men with Peyronie's disease, penile curvature has a greater effect on psychosocial health than changes in girth, according to new research in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
Peyronie's-related penile tapering is described as "bottleneck" (when the distal shaft is narrower than the base) or "cobra head" (when the base is narrower than the distal shaft).
Researchers collected data from 131 men with midshaft curvature. They used questionnaires to assess the men's Peyronie's disease experiences, self-esteem, relationships, and depression symptoms.
In general, girth changes did not affect the men negatively, although depression was more common in men with girth differences of 10% or more.
