Men With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome at Higher Risk for Erectile Dysfunction: Study
New Research Analyzes Nerve Damage Risk with AdVance™ Male Sling
New research published in Andrology suggests that men with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) are more likely to develop erectile dysfunction (ED) than men without CFS.
Previously, not much was known about CFS in relation to male sexual health. A research team from Taiwan set out to learn more.
Using information from the National Health Insurance Research Database, they identified 1,976 men over age 20 with recently-diagnosed CFS. For comparison, they also collected data from 7,898 men without CFS who were matched by age and comorbidities.
Overall, the men's mean age was 50 years and they were followed for an average of 5.5 years.
Men with CFS were found to have a 1.88-fold higher risk for organic ED when compared to the men without CFS, after adjusting for age and comorbidities.

We're pleased to announce that a new research summary has been posted to the ISSM website.
"Risk of Damage to the Somatic Innervation of the Penis during the AdVance™ Procedure: An Anatomical Study" by Cornelis R.C. Hogewoning, et al. was first published online in July in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.
