About this title:
Oxford American Urology Library
The estimated prevalence of erectile dysfunction (ED) ranges from 15 to 50 million men, young and old, in the United States alone. Despite still-existing taboos surrounding male impotence, more men are seeking help and treatment with the advent of newer treatment options in recent years, most notably oral PDE-5 inhibitors that shed light on the primary vascular cause and treatment target in most cases.
In most men, ED has a physical cause and can be effectively treated. Increased knowledge of cause and treatment options, however, requires clinicians to become acquainted with side effects of drugs, alternative treatments, new research in the field, and potential disease conditions that might co-exist with ED.
Part of the Oxford American Urology Library, this practical manual illuminates the pathophysiology of erectile dysfunction and approaches to diagnostic evaluation and therapeutic options, including specifics of ED in men with chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease, heart failure, and chronic kidney disease. All currently available treatment options from prostaglandins, through vacuum devices and PDE-5 inhibitors, to interventional and surgical therapies are described and assessed for their efficacy and safety based on the published literature and ongoing research trials.
- Covers all currently available treatment options, including interventional and surgical therapies
- Discusses the presentation of ED in men with chronic diseases
- Provides a multidisciplinary approach to management of ED
Readership: Most physicians, but especially those directly involved in managing ED.
