World Meeting Offers Two Video Seminars on Prosthetic Urology
Men with BPH More Likely to Have Ejaculatory Disorders After Combined Treatment
We're pleased to announce that two video seminars on prosthetic urology will be part of the program at next month's World Meeting on Sexual Medicine in Lisbon.
As Dr. Steven K. Wilson, editor-in-chief of the Video Journal of Prosthetic Urology (VJPU), explains in his video invitation, the seminars will last two hours each and cover topics on penile implant and urinary sphincter procedures.
The World Meeting will be held February 28 - March 3, 2018. We hope to see you there!
ISSM Business Meeting to be Held March 2, 2018 in Lisbon
A combined drug therapy of dutasteride and tamsulosin can be an effective treatment for urinary symptoms in men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH - an enlarged prostate), but patients might develop ejaculatory disorders.
A study of 489 sexually active men found that after a year of treatment, men who took the fixed-dose combination were more likely to have adverse events compared to a placebo group. Ejaculatory problems included lower semen volume, retrograde ejaculation, and ejaculation failure.
The findings were based on the men's scores on the Male Sexual Health Questionnaire (MSHQ). The BPH Impact Index and the International Prostate Symptom Score assessment tools were also used.
The study was first published in November in BJU International. Learn more here.
ISSM members are cordially invited to the Biennial Business Meeting of Members of the International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM) on March 2, 2018 at 7:30 AM (CET) at the Lisbon Congress Center (Praca Industrias) in Lisbon, Portugal.
