  1. Effects of testosterone gel followed by parenteral testosterone undecanoate on sexual dysfunction and on features of the metabolic syndrome.

    Andrologia 40(1):44 (2008) PMID 18211301

    The effects of administration of testosterone (T) gel, resulting in plasma T levels in the low range of reference values, followed by testosterone undecanoate (TU), producing plasma T levels in the mid-normal range, were measured in 27 hypogonadal men aged 47-74 years. T gel had positive effects...
  2. Distribution of N- and O-linked oligosaccharides on surface of spermatozoa from normal and infertile subjects.

    Andrologia 40(1):7 (2008) PMID 18211295

    Sperm glycocalyx modifications are very important for gamete recognition and fertilisation in mammals. These processes may be associated with specific changes in the content and distribution of surface carbohydrates. The purpose of this study was to determine the distribution of surface carbohyd...
  3. A study of the effect of straining on the cavernosus muscles: identification of 'straining-cavernosus reflex' and its clinical significance.

    Andrologia 40(1):23 (2008) PMID 18211298

    Bulbo/ischiocavernosus muscles (BCM, ICM) were found to contract on straining. We investigated the hypothesis that straining effects cavernosus muscles' contraction through a reflex action. The response of the BCM and ICM electromyographic (EMG) activity to increased intra-abdominal pressure (st...
  4. Safety and efficacy of venlafaxine in the treatment of premature ejaculation: a double-blind, placebo-controlled, fixed-dose, randomised study.

    Andrologia 40(1):49 (2008) PMID 18211302

    Venlafaxine is a serotonin-noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor antidepressant. Two hundred and twenty-two married men (mean age, 34 years) with premature ejaculation (PE) were randomly assigned to receive 75 mg of venlafaxine extended release (n = 112) (group 1) or placebo (n = 110) (group 2) for 1...
  5. Altered malondialdehyde, protein carbonyl and sialic acid levels in seminal plasma of microscopically abnormal semen.

    Andrologia 40(1):56 (2008) PMID 18211303

    Microscopically abnormal (n = 26) semen showed significantly higher levels of malondialdehyde (MDA), protein carbonyl (PC) and protein-bound sialic acid (SA) in seminal plasma as compared with normal semen (n = 24). The percentage of nonmotile spermatozoa showed significant (P < 0.01) positive c...
  6. Cryopreservation technique: comparison of Test yolk buffer versus SpermCryo and vapour versus computerised freezing.

    Andrologia 40(1):18 (2008) PMID 18211297

    Semen cryopreservation offers the possibility to maintain fertility over a long time period e.g. for male cancer patients. Although its use expands worldwide, there is no established method that can be referred to as an entrenched standard for routine laboratory use. Cryodamage is still a genera...
  7. A new experimental inbred Wistar rat varicocele model: anatomy of the left spermatic vein and the effect on histology.

    Andrologia 40(1):13 (2008) PMID 18211296

    Because of venous anatomical differences between rats and humans and the personal interpretation of these differences, there is neither consistent animal prototype nor consistent results in the study of varicocele. We established a new substrain of Wistar inbred rats, of which the left testis ve...
  8. Is erectile dysfunction a sentinel symptom for cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes?

    Andrologia 40(1):1 (2008) PMID 18211294

    The study investigated whether there is a significant association between erectile dysfunction (ED) secondary to autonomic failure, and cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN) in male patients suffering from type 2 diabetes. Twenty-two patients suffering from type 2 diabetes were recruited for...
  9. Antiapoptotic effects of dehydroepiandrosterone on testicular torsion/detorsion in rats.

    Andrologia 40(1):38 (2008) PMID 18211300

    In the present study, we aimed to evaluate the effects of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) on apoptosis of testicular germ cells after repair of testicular torsion in rats. Twenty-four adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into four groups, with six rats in each group: sham operation...
  10. Scrotal ultrasonography: should it be used in routine evaluation of infertile men?

    Andrologia 40(1):58 (2008) PMID 18211304

    Several studies have suggested that male infertility and testicular cancer may have common aetiological factors. Scrotal ultrasonography (US) has an important role in the diagnosis of testicular tumours when not palpable by physical examination. In this study, we present two infertile men referr...
