Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Please let us invite you to contribute to the preparation to the very special issue of the Journal of Men’s Health dedicated to Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Although it is still a taboo in many sectors of our society, some reports state that ED affects over 18.4% of the male population aged 20 years or older. The crude prevalence of erectile dysfunction can reach over 50% amongst men with diabetes.

This disease has psychological components, but also new recent pharmaceutical developments and several new surgical options.

We would like to focus this special issue on the diagnostic challenges, to the proper use of innovative therapies and to the patients’ perspectives open with the improved prognosis. Differentiating between localised and generalised disease remains problematic even with the best imaging techniques. Sequencing and maintenance of novel drugs are being debated. The men’s own evaluation of the quality of their prolonged life is maybe not enough taken into account.

This special issue will offer an opportunity to review and also introduce new concepts in ED:

- Review of Diagnosis and treatment of ED

- Psychological review and assessment of ED patients

- Diagnosis and treatment of ED after prostate cancer surgery

- Optimal selection of systemic therapies

- Optimal pharmaceutical therapies

- The role of Stem Cells and ED

- New surgical techniques

Level 1 evidence papers can take a long time to reach the general medical community and opportunities to start reviewing future treatment options is fundamental for helping patients who suffer with this devastating condition today.

The Journal of Men’s Health special edition: “Erectile Dysfunction: state of the art treatments and surgical techniques” will welcome your work as an original article, case report, commentary or review paper. The guest editors shall guarantee a fast and fair peer-review for every article submitted.
