Sexual and Reproductive Health Group

The European Association of Urology has recently supported the development of expert groups of young academic urologists with the purpose of boosting research activity in some critical areas of urology and improving academic collaboration among different centres in Europe.

The expert-groups aim at scientific cooperation and manuscript preparation, study design or other

scientific output. The group was established during a meeting held on 12 October 2012 in Munich.

Sexual and Reproductive Health working party’s goal

Men’s urological health is as important as their overall health. Fortunately, many of the urological health conditions and diseases that men face can be prevented or treated – if found early. Prostate cancer and testicular cancer are treatable when found early. However, urological cancers are just one aspect of urological health; there is so much more going on! The Sexual and Reproductive Health working party aims at in-depth investigation of several aspects of men’s health, such as sexual dysfunction and infertility.

Projects and plans for the future

The working party organised several meetings, such as during the EAU Annual Congress in Milan (IT) in 2013, the Leading lights in Urology meeting in Lisboa (PT) and the ESSM Congress Istanbul (TK) in 2014.

The group works in close contact and collaboration with the EAU’s Guidelines Office on Sexual Dysfunction, by supporting all methodological and drafting steps.
EAU-YAU Sexual and Reproductive Health Working Group has produced in the last years 14 papers (YAU Sexual and Reproductive Health).

Ongoing projects include

  • The impact of asexual trait and porn addiction in a young men health cohort: a survey data analysis
  • A multi-institutional survey on Sexual rehabilitation following pelvic surgery (in collaboration with EAU YAU Prostate cancer working party)
  • European register on medical and surgical management of Priapism
  • Management of buried penis: a systematic review
  • Patient perspective of management of Peyronie’s disease.
