Male Sexual Dysfunction

For the 2017 Male Sexual Dysfunction Guidelines, new and relevant evidence has been identified, collated and appraised through a structured assessment of the literature. A broad and comprehensive literature search, covering all sections of the Male Sexual Dysfunction Guidelines was performed. The search was limited to studies representing high levels of evidence, i.e. systematic reviews with meta-analysis, randomised controlled trials (RCTs), and prospective non-randomised comparative studies, published in the English language. Additional references and text updates have been incorporated throughout the text as a result of this search.


No significant new information has been included for the 2016 print.

However, the text has been reformatted, merging Male Sexual Dysfunction with the Priapism and Penile Curvature Guidelines documents.


For the 2015 Guidelines, the text has been significantly reduced so that only key information is included and re-formatted according to the EAU non-oncology template so that all Guidelines follow a similar format.
