Description

The first edition of Male Sexual Function: A Guide to Clinical Management was published in 2001. Since that time, two new oral medications for erectile dysfunction (R) (R) (ED), Vardenafil (Levitra ) and Tadalafil (Cialis ), have been introduced. Links between ED and lower urinary tract symptoms have been postulated, advances in the basic science of erectile physiology have occurred, and the appreciation of ED as a form of endothelial dysfunction and a harbinger of other more potentially lethal forms of vascular disease has become more widespread. In some instances, third-party payers have reduced or eliminated coverage for ED treatments in an attempt to cut costs. They have classified sexual activity as "recreational," "lifestyle," or not medically necessary, but have failed to appreciate the negative consequences of ED, such as depression with all of its ramifications. Male Sexual Function: A Guide to Clinical Management, Second Edition is a comp- hensive overview of the field of male sexual function and includes a chapter on female sexual dysfunction, an emerging field with a very high incidence in the population and an ever-growing following.show more

Review quote

From the reviews of the second edition: "The bulk of this book will be of interest primarily to urologists. There are chapters on penile implants and complications of penile-implants surgery, Peyronie's disease and its treatment, use of nerve-sparing surgical techniques to prevent erectile dysfunction after radical prostatectomy, and the management of priapism. The contributing authors are distinguished urologists at the forefront of research on the treatment of erectile dysfunction."... New England Journal of Medicine "Mulcahy and 43 contributors, all of them experts in the management of sexual diseases in men, have written the second edition of this book which was first published in 2001. They aimed to provide the reader a comprehensive overview of male sexual dysfunction. ... All practitioners of various disciplines involved in the management of ED and other sexual diseases will find in this book a practical tool, which is useful for the assessment and treatment of most patients."
