Validation of holding time, a novel tool to assess control over ejaculation in males: A pilot study.

Andrologia 2022 Jun 23:e14509. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Department of Urology and Sexual Medicine, TSS Shripad Hegde Kadave Institute of Medical Sciences, Sirsi, Karnataka, India.

Premature ejaculation (PE) is considered as a disorder of perceived loss of ejaculatory control. However, we cannot objectively estimate ejaculatory control due to the absence of an objective tool to measure it. Hence, we designed a pilot study to validate holding time (HoT), a novel objective tool, hypothesized by us, to measure ejaculatory control in men. Read More

Hypothalamic-related neural mechanism in lifelong premature ejaculation and trends following selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor administration.

CNS Neurosci Ther 2022 Jun 10. Epub 2022 Jun 10.

Life Science Research Center, School of Life Science and Technology, Xidian University, Shaanxi, China.

Lifelong premature ejaculation patients had altered structural and functional parameters of the hypothalamus compared with healthy controls. The patients showed increased hypothalamus-related functional connectivity in several regions one hour after dapoxetine administration. The changing trends of the brain functional connectivity after dapoxetine administration possibly provided important information about the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor effects on the functional neural system.

Int J Impot Res 2022 Mar 21. Epub 2022 Mar 21.

Department of Urology, University of Naples, Federico II, Naples, Italy.

A eutectic mixture of prilocaine/lidocaine spray (Fortacin™, Recordati, Milan, Italy) has been approved for the management of patients affected by life-long premature ejaculation (PE), but to date, there is a lack of dose- or time-finding studies in the literature that indicate the best method of intake to optimize treatment outcomes. In this multicentre, randomized, two-phase study, we aimed to compare, in terms of treatment effectiveness (primary objective) and safety (secondary objective), different treatment regimens (various doses and times of drug delivery) of Fortacin™ in 91 patients affected with lifelong PE who were recruited at four different centres and randomized (1:1:1 ratio) into three different groups. The study included two phases: during the first phase (focused on time-finding), the same drug dose (three sprays) was taken at different intervals before intercourse (5, 15, 30 min). Read More

Front Physiol 2022 28;13:762272. Epub 2022 Feb 28.

Department of Urology and Andrology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, Hefei, China.

Ejaculation is a complex biphasic process involving a series of neurophysiological activities, such as the contraction of a large number of muscle groups and the ejaculation of semen from the urethra anterior. Due to the complexity of the process, many related factors have not been fully clarified, resulting in ejaculation dysfunction. As a common ejaculation dysfunction, lifelong premature ejaculation (LPE) is a problem for many people. Read More
