This prospective, randomized, open-label pilot study explored the effects of vacuum-pump therapy, with and without penile modeling, in men receiving Collagenase Clostridium histolyticum (CCH). The authors noted that penile modeling and vacuum therapy “share underlying physiologic mechanisms.”
While medical literature has addressed pain management for some urologic procedures (such as cystectomies and radical prostatectomies), little has been documented concerning pain management in penile prosthetics.
Deep dyspareunia refers to pelvic pain with intercourse and can negatively affect a woman’s sexual function, relationships, and quality of life. Often, it is caused by endometriosis, but it might also stem from contact with other pelvic structures near the vagina, such as the bladder, pelvic floor muscles, cervix, uterus, and adnexa.
The current study focused on testosterone kinetics after external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) in contemporary patients with localized prostate cancer. The authors hypothesized that these patients would have less significant decreases in serum testosterone and duration when compared to men in the previous studies.
The study discusses the V-neck technique (VNT), a modification to the traditional infra-pubic approach that may improve appearance and comfort in men with IPPs.
This proof-of-concept study discusses the ways three-dimensional (3D) photographs might be used to develop metrics for describing volume-loss deformities in men with Peyronie’s disease (PD).
