NYP/Weill Cornell Urologists present at 2007 AUA Conference

NEW YORK (May 18, 2007) -- NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center urologists are presenting exciting new research at the 2007 American Urological Association (AUA) Conference in Anaheim, May 19May 24. Among the most significant presentations are the following:

Obesity, Metabolic Syndrome Lead to Erectile Dysfunction -- An AUA Press Highlight
POD43, May 22, 1:00 p.m.3:00 p.m.

Increasing evidence has identified urinary tract symptoms or sexual dysfunction as a reflection of overall health. Drs. Steven Kaplan and Alexis Te, director of the Brady Prostate Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, have found that obese men and men with metabolic syndrome -- a group of conditions that often occur together, including obesity, high blood sugar, high blood pressure and high triglycerides, which can lead to cardiovascular disease -- have higher incidences of urological erectile dysfunction. The study explores how lifestyle can affect the risk of other, previously unlinked, urological problems.

Vasectomy Reversal More Effective Than Assisted Reproductive Techniques
POD50, May 23, 10:00 a.m.12:00 p.m.

Vasectomy reversal may be more successful than assisted -reproductive techniques, such as sperm retrieval, for men who have had a vasectomy, but later decide to have children with their partner. Dr. Richard Lee will present findings of this study -- of which Dr. Peter Schlegel, Weill Cornell urology chair, is senior author -- during a podium session on Wednesday morning.

Dr. Lee is also presenting research (MP03, May 19, 3:30 p.m.5:30 p.m.) on the treatment of men who have the most severe forms of male infertility. This study shows that in this circumstance, sperm retrieval with In Vitro Fertilization Therapy (IVF) is the most successful and cost-effective treatment for these infertile men.
