Urologists examine the role of pollutants, drugs and testosterone on men’s health


NEW ORLEANS, May 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Does Environmental Exposure Impact Male Fertility? How Does Testosterone Affect Bone Density Loss and Personal Budgets? Can a lower dose of urinary medication decrease the risk of a major cardiac event?

Urologists examine the role of pollutants, drugs, and testosterone on men’s health.

The researchers will present the results of these men’s health studies at 117and American Urological Association Annual Scientific Meeting. R Charles Welliver, Jr.MD, Associate Professor of Surgery in the Department of Urology at Albany Medical Collegewill host a press session featuring the following four abstracts at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans on May 14, 2022to 10:00 a.m..

Federico Belladelli, MD, of San Raffaele Hospital, studied the association between air pollutants and sperm levels in men seeking medical treatments for infertility. “Does air pollution impact sperm parameters: results of a real-life cross-sectional study in infertile white European men”

Ruben Blachman-BraunMDof University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, assessed whether men receiving phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors for lower urinary tract symptoms had a reduced risk of major adverse cardiac events or venous thromboembolism. “Is tadalafil associated with a decreased risk of major adverse cardiac events or venous thromboembolism in men with lower urinary tract symptoms?”

The cost of testosterone treatment through direct-to-consumer platforms was compared to the cost of similar care at a tertiary center by Nicholas SellkeMDof Case Western Reserve University. “Cost Analysis of Direct-to-Consumer Telehealth Platforms Offering Testosterone Therapy”

Factors such as age, diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea have been studied by Jose FloresMD, from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, as significant predictors of bone density loss. “Analysis of the impact of testosterone on the loss of bone density”

“The AAU and the annual meeting continue to emphasize topics related to men’s health,” Dr. Welliver said. “The research highlighted here encompasses the breadth of men’s health with important topics such as drug safety, the effects of environmental exposures on fertility, and the effects of testosterone on both bone health and men’s portfolio. The AAU is an important champion for men’s health issues and these presentations highlight some of the best work from our meeting.”
