Data from European Association of Urology (EAU) - Curated by Marshall Pearce - Last updated 26 October 2016
These guidelines include 4 sections. The aim of the first two sections is to present the current evidence for the diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation (PE). ED and PE are the two main complaints in male sexual medicine. Pharmacological therapies have completely changed the diagnostic and therapeutic approach to ED.
The aim of the third section is to provide the practicing urologist with the most recent evidence on the diagnosis and management of penile curvature in order to assist in their decision-making. Penile curvature is a common urological disorder which can be congenital or acquired. Congenital curvature is briefly discussed in these guidelines as a distinct pathology in the adult population without any other concomitant abnormality present (such as urethral abnormalities). For paediatric congenital penile curvature, please refer to the EAU Guidelines on Paediatric Urology, Chapter on Congenital Penile Curvature. Acquired curvature is mainly due to Peyronie’s disease but can also be due to the development of fibrosis following penile fracture.
The aim of the fourth section is to present the current evidence for the diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering from priapism.
