  • [Quality of life after extensive pelvic surgery]. [Journal Article]
  • Rozhl Chir 2016; 95(9):358-462RC
  • Levý M, Lipská L, … Šimša J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Long-term quality of life in survivors of pelvic exenteration for rectal cancer is comparable with reported results following primary rectal cancer resection with the exception of the sexual function. The quality of life gradually improves in the course of weeks to months from the surgery.
  • Distal corporoplasty for distal cylinders extrusion after penile prosthesis implantation. [Journal Article]
  • Urologia 2016 Sep 3; :0U
  • Carrino M, Chiancone F, … Fedelini P
  • CONCLUSIONS: Distal extrusion of cylinders is a potential complication of the penile prosthesis implantation. Distal corporoplasty was first described by Mulcahy. He reported a series of 14 patients with a follow-up of about 2 years with optimal functional outcomes. Moreover, distal corporoplasty resulted in shorter operative time, better function, less pain, and fewer recurrences than Gortex windsock repair.10 In our experience, distal corporoplasty is a simple and safe procedure in the treatment of distal cylinders extrusion when the prosthetic material is not exposed to the exterior.
  • Dyspareunia and depressive symptoms are associated with impaired sexual functioning in women with endometriosis, whereas sexual functioning in their male partners is not affected. [Journal Article]
  • Hum Reprod 2016 Sep 12HR
  • De Graaff AA, Van Lankveld J, … Dunselman GA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Dyspareunia and depressive symptoms are associated with impaired sexual functioning in women with endometriosis, whereas sexual functioning in their male partners is not affected.Patient recruitment was performed in one tertiary care centre and to a lesser extent one general hospital, possibly leading to an over-representation of patients with more severe endometriosis. All participating women had a partner and are therefore 'survivors' in relationship terms. This may have led to an underestimation of the impact of endometriosis on sexual functioning.It would be worthwhile to further explore the role of depressive symptoms in women with symptomatic endometriosis and to assess the effect of treatment of depressive symptoms on sexual functioning and quality of life. The fact that the partners did not report impaired sexual functioning could be a reassuring thought to women that might be discussed in the consulting room.
  • Local oestrogen for vaginal atrophy in postmenopausal women. [Review]
  • Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2016; (8):CD001500CD
  • Lethaby A, Ayeleke RO, Roberts H
  • CONCLUSIONS: There was no evidence of a difference in efficacy between the various intravaginal oestrogenic preparations when compared with each other. However, there was low-quality evidence that intra-vaginal oestrogenic preparations improve the symptoms of vaginal atrophy in postmenopausal women when compared to placebo. There was low-quality evidence that oestrogen cream may be associated with an increase in endometrial thickness compared to oestrogen ring; this may have been due to the higher doses of cream used. However there was no evidence of a difference in the overall body of evidence in adverse events between the various oestrogenic preparations compared with each other or with placebo.
