Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the effect of sildenafil in Brazilian patientswith erectile dysfunction secondary to spinal cord injury. Methods:Participants were examined at the time of enrollment and two andsix weeks later. Baseline and follow-up data on sexual functionwere collected. After the second week, the initial dose of sildenafil(50 mg) could be adjusted according to efficacy and tolerability.Efficacy was assessed primarily through the scores on questions 3and 4 of the International Index of Erectile Dysfunction. Secondaryanalyses included questions and domains of the index, globalefficacy evaluation, percentage of success in sexual intercourseattempts, answers to the Quality of Life and Erectile FunctionQuestionnaire, and partner’s satisfaction. Results: Ninety-onepatients were evaluated as to efficacy and 94 as to safety. Medianage of patients was 33 years, and median time between spinal cordinjury and study enrollment was three years. Sildenafil produceda significant increase in the mean scores of questions 3 and 4(p < 0.001 in both comparisons), as well as in other questionsand in all domains of the International Index of Erectile Dysfunction.Improved erections were reported by 89% of patients, and theproportion of successful sexual intercourse attempts went from6 to 74% (p < 0.001). Mean scores on the Quality of Life andErectile Dysfunction Questionnaire increased from 60 to 74%(p < 0.001). Ninety percent of 42 women reported being moderatelysatisfied to very satisfied with their partners’ treatment. The mostcommon adverse events were headache (16%), flushing (11%) andnasal congestion (10%). Conclusions: Sildenafil proved to be safeand effective in treating Brazilian men with erectile dysfunctionsecondary to traumatic spinal injury.

Abstract: background: a harmonious gluteal region is considered an essential element in the composition of body beauty and expression of femininity. therefore, there is growing interest, from both men and women, in the aesthetical improvement of this region. the aim of this study is to present an alternative to the published augmented gluteoplasty techniques, as well as to demonstrate the viability of this alternative as a safe and reproducible technique. based on intramuscular placement of the prosthesis, the technique uses simplified limits of dissection with reference to the fixed anatomical structures (bones) of the gluteal region in order to construct the implant pocket. methods: from 2001 to 2011, 18 patients with ages ranging from 25 years to 50 years underwent augmentation gluteoplasty. specific implants were used for the gluteal area, with implant volume ranging from 250 ml to 800 ml (mean, 367 ml). results: there was a significant increase in the gluteal volume of patients along with achievement of natural and harmonious contours. immediate and long-term satisfaction with the cosmetic results was obtained in 100% of patients. conclusions: the use of intramuscular gluteal prostheses is a safe and easily reproducible method of augmentation gluteoplasty with good results and a low complication rate. determination of the limits of detachment using fixed bone structures simplifies the implementation of this technique, allowing the use of even larger implants than those reported in the literature.
