Now in a revised and expanded
second edition, this comprehensive clinical guide remains a state-of-the-art synthesis of the literature, covering all aspects of treating
erectile dysfunction (ED) and other related male sexual dysfunctions.
Cardiovascular, hormonal, psychological and lifestyle factors are each
considered in diagnosis and treatment, which includes pharmacological, surgical
and prosthetic management strategies. The effects of prostate cancer and its treatment
are also discussed, as are Peyronie's disease, priapism and ejaculatory
disorders. New chapters in this edition discuss the profound effects of
lifestyle change on sexual function, alternative and internet drugs that affect
sexual function, endovascular approaches to ED, penile length considerations,
the effect of radiation on erectile function, and optimizing ED research.
Presenting a better understanding of what causes erectile dysfunction and the
effective medications and non-medication treatments used to treat the
condition, this invaluable title offers all physicians, residents, and fellows
- and even medical students and other health professionals such as nurse
practitioners and physician assistants - an essential reference for enhancing
diagnosis and treatment of this common and debilitating disorder.
