Have You Seen the VJPU?
Last week, we announced that the ISSM Ad Hoc Committee for the Definition of Premature Ejaculation had developed a unified definition for both the acquired and lifelong forms of premature ejaculation (PE). (You can find the story here.)
The full report of the committee's definition, entitled "An Update of the International Society of Sexual Medicine’s Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Premature Ejaculation (PE)," is now available as a PDF on the ISSM website.
This report also includes comprehensive information on the epidemiology, etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of PE.
The authors note that the development of such guidelines is "an evolutionary process" and recommend that the guidelines be re-evaluated and updated in four years.
The Video Journal of Prosthetic Urology (VJPU) is the ISSM's newest peer-reviewed journal. As the name suggests, VJPU focuses on prosthetic urology, especially as it pertains to sexual medicine. Novel technologies and "how I do it" surgical expositions are of special interest.
"Our new video journal promises a forum for surgical education that will be timely, inexpensive and allows for instant update as enhancements in our medical knowledge become available," writes VJPU editor-in-chief Steven K. Wilson, MD, FACS, FRCS.
