MALE SEXUAL quality-of-life issues became the leitmotif of the 13th Congress of the European Association of Urology (EAU) as urologists presented new data on the diagnosis and management of a spectrum of urologic disorders that increasingly trouble aging men in Western society.

In Barcelona, Spain, more than 7000 urologists representing 72 countries gathered this spring for the congress, the largest urologic meeting ever held in Europe. Advances in the diagnosis and treatment of male erectile dysfunction, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and prostate cancer were examined through a new emphasis on quality-of-life considerations that will continue to prevail in the future, said John Fitzpatrick, MD, professor of surgery and urology at University College, Dublin, Ireland. "In the past, urologists and physicians have not paid much attention to sexual quality-of-life issues, and we have only recently become aware of the complexity of sexual dysfunction," he said.
