Men Account for 50% of Infertility: First Andrologist Appointed at Rutgers

Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School

The first step in identifying and treating infertility is often rigorous testing for women. However, only 50 percent of infertility is attributable to the female partner alone, 50 percent of couples have a male factor, according to Nikhil Gupta, MD, assistant professor of surgery. In May 2018, Dr. Gupta became the first andrologist and male sexual function subspecialist appointed to the faculty of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. He focuses on the treatment of male infertility, sexual dysfunction, benign prostate hyperplasia (non-cancerous enlarged prostate) and erectile dysfunction.

Study shows advantages for stress urinary incontinence surgery

Mayo Clinic

One of the most commonly performed surgeries to treat stress urinary incontinence in women may have better long-term results than another common surgical technique, according to a study led by Mayo Clinic researchers. The retrospective study of more than 1,800 cases at Mayo Clinic from 2002 to 2012 found that the need for additional surgery was twice as high after a transobturator sling surgery compared with a retropubic sling procedure.

A third of children up to age 3 exposed to Zika in-utero have neurological problems

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

New research suggests that 32% of children up to the age of 3 years who were exposed to the Zika virus during the mother’s pregnancy had below-average neurological development. Also, fewer than 4% of 216 children evaluated had microcephaly —a smaller-than-normal head that is one of the hallmarks of the mosquito-borne disease. The heads of two of those children grew to normal size over time, the researchers reported.

Newswise: Growth Failure in Preterm Infants Tied to Altered Gut Bacteria

Growth Failure in Preterm Infants Tied to Altered Gut Bacteria

Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

Extremely premature infants who fail to grow as expected have delayed development of their microbiome, or communities of bacteria and other micro-organisms living in the gut, according to a new study published in Scientific Reports. Analysis of these infants’ metabolism revealed that their bodies are responding as if they were fasting, despite caloric intake similar to extremely premature infants with appropriate growth. The study findings also suggest that the unique makeup of the microbiome in infants with growth failure might contribute to their inability to properly metabolize nutrients.

World Expert Takes Multi-Pronged Approach to Improving Preeclampsia Diagnosis and Treatment

University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston

Preeclampsia is just as hard to accurately diagnose now as it was 100 years ago, said Baha Sibai, MD, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist with UTHealth. Researchers at McGovern Medical School are looking for ways to change that.
