- Prevalence of climacteric symptoms comparing perimenopausal and postmenopausal Chinese women. [Journal Article]
- JPJ Psychosom Obstet Gynaecol 2016 Oct 21; :1-9
- CONCLUSIONS: The most frequent five symptoms among the investigated 1225 Chinese women were fatigue, insomnia, irritability, palpitations, depression, nearly the same in perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. The prevalence and the severity of most of the symptoms were significantly different between the two groups.
- Anogenital infection by Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae in HIV-infected men and women in Salvador, Brazil. [Journal Article]
- BJBraz J Infect Dis 2016 Oct 17
- CONCLUSIONS: Missed opportunities for diagnosis in extra genital sites could impact on HIV transmission. The extra genital sites need to be considered to break the HIV and bacterial sexually transmitted infections chain-of-transmission.
- Distal corporoplasty for distal cylinders extrusion after penile prosthesis implantation. [Journal Article]
- UUrologia 2016 Sep 3; :0
- 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.

We report two cases of penile fracture. Case 1 was in a 22-year-old male. He heard a cracking sound during urination and experienced acute penile pain and detumescence. He was admitted to our hospital on that day. Case 2 was in a 52-year-old male. He heard a cracking sound during sexual intercourse and experienced detumescence. He was admitted to our hospital on the next day. In both cases, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed disruption of the tunica albuginea. We performed immediate surgical repair through localized incision. They had no perioperative complications. Several months after surgery, they reported subjectively good erection without penile curvature or pain. We found that MRI is a useful tool for the assessment of location of the tunica rupture and minimization of the surgical incision.
- Ospemifene: a safe treatment of vaginal atrophy. [Journal Article]
- EREur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci 2016; 20(18):3934-3944
- CONCLUSIONS: Ospemifene relieves moderate to severe symptoms of vulvovaginal atrophy, like dryness, irritation and soreness around the genital area, and painful sexual intercourse, in menopausal women. It is well tolerated, and it has neutral effects on endometrium and coagulation. Clinical trials and even long-term studies on breast cancer effects support ospemifene overall safety.
- [Clitoral reconstruction after female genital mutilation at CHU Yalgado of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. About 68 patients operated]. [Journal Article]
- JGJ Gynecol Obstet Biol Reprod (Paris) 2016 Oct 5
- CONCLUSIONS: These results are of interest in this new clitoral transposition technique in favor of women victims of genital mutilation.
- [Penile fracture and testicular rupture must be diagnosed quickly and require surgical intervention]. [Journal Article]

This article describes penile fracture and testicular rupture and offers recommendations for management. Both conditions occur most commonly after blunt trauma. Diagnosis can be supported by imaging but is usually confirmed on surgical exploration, which in both cases should be carried out promptly. Penile fracture occurs most commonly related to coitus, and surgical correction decreases the risk of long-term erectile dysfunction, deformity and pain. Testicular rupture usually presents with persisting pain and haematoma after trauma, and surgery is recommended to minimize permanent organ damage.
- When love hurts. A systematic review on the effects of endometriosis surgical and pharmacological treatments on female sexual functioning. [Journal Article]
- AOActa Obstet Gynecol Scand 2016 Sep 30
- CONCLUSIONS: Sexual functioning is a multidimensional phenomenon and the ideal treatment for endometriosis related sexual dysfunctions should be conducted by a multidisciplinary team that involves not only gynaecologists, but also sexologists and psychologists/psychotherapists. Improving global sexual functioning, and not just reducing pain at intercourse, should be considered as a major clinical goal of endometriosis treatment. This article is protected by copyright.

- [Quality of life after extensive pelvic surgery]. [Journal Article]
- RCRozhl Chir 2016; 95(9):358-462
- 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.

- 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]
- HRHum Reprod 2016 Sep 12
- 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.
