The International Book of Erectile Dysfunction is a general textbook on erectile dysfunction written by leading world experts in the field. Basic and clinical research into the anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry of erectile function has made it possible to define specific organic disorders and diseases that can result in erectile dysfunction. Now, urologists and other clinicians in this field are able to differentiate between psychogenic and organic causes.

The text is well-illustrated, complete with excellent graphics and schemes and will therefore be of use to all medical specialties that cover the male population. It will equally be appreciated by residents, fellows, urologists, reconstructive surgeons, internal doctors and endocrinologists. Each chapter is concise and clear. In addition, general considerations about erectile dysfunction, its etiology, pathophysiology and classifications are discussed. Important facts about its management (conservative or surgical), a variety of surgical procedures, detailed descriptions of different techniques, and possible tricks and traps are noted. Chapters on practical procedures and operative surgical techniques with illustrations are included to provide a detailed and easy reference to the commonly used forms of techniques and procedures.

The International Book of Erectile Dysfunction brings together experts of basic science and the clinical management of different types of erectile dysfunction. The chapters cover current diagnostic procedures and treatment options, as well as discuss the current research, that is ongoing in the different areas of erectile dysfunction management.
