Abstract
Now in a revised and expanded second edition, this comprehensive clinical guide remains a state-of-the-art synthesis of the literature, covering all aspects of treating erectile dysfunction (ED) and other related male sexual dysfunctions. Cardiovascular, hormonal, psychological and lifestyle factors are each considered in diagnosis and treatment, which includes pharmacological, surgical and prosthetic management strategies. The effects of prostate cancer and its treatment are also discussed, as are Peyronie's disease, priapism and ejaculatory disorders. New chapters in this edition discuss the profound effects of lifestyle change on sexual function, alternative and internet drugs that affect sexual function, endovascular approaches to ED, penile length considerations, the effect of radiation on erectile function, and optimizing ED research. Presenting a better understanding of what causes erectile dysfunction and the effective medications and non-medication treatments used to treat the condition, this invaluable title offers all physicians, residents, and fellows and even medical students and other health professionals such as nurse practitioners and physician assistants an essential reference for enhancing diagnosis and treatment of this common and debilitating disorder.

Abstract
Understanding the influence and interaction between physical activity and the endocrine system are of paramount importance in dealing with a multitude of health problems. In Endocrinology of Physical Activity and Sport, renowned physicians and researchers provide a comprehensive and expanded update on the scientific, clinical and practical components of endocrinology as related to sport and exercise. The authors thoroughly review what is known about how such activity affects the endocrine system and how in turn these hormonal responses affect many other organs and systems of the body. In addition, aspects of endocrinology in non-glandular tissue which have endocrine actions are addressed; for example, adipocytes and the release of leptin and related adipocytokines. Further, a wide range of clinically related topics such as athletic amenorrhea, osteopenia, sarcopenia, and hypogonadism are included. This new edition critically integrates what is known about the complex interaction of the endocrine system in the sports context and will again prove immensely valuable to all physicians and clinical investigators treating those active in sports today.

Abstract
When Puberity is Precocious: Scientific and Clinical Aspects provides a unique continuum of expertise, looking at puberty from anthropologic, epidemiologic, clinical, and molecular perspectives. The volume addresses broad pubertal changes in the general population while at the same time providing in depth information about specific disorders of puberty and the latest management changes. The text is divided into seven parts. The first is an in-depth investigation into neuroendocrine control of puberty, the second looks at secular trends and the onset of puberty, and the third provides an examination into isolated breast development. The fourth section covers adrenal abnormalities and puberty, the next two sections include chapters on gonadotropinÇÖs effects, and the final section is a looks at environmental effects on puberty. Comprehensive and timely, When Puberity is Precocious: Scientific and Clinical Aspects will become an essential reference for endocrinologists and internists with an interest in precocious puberty.

Abstract
Endocrine disruption represents one of the most controversial environmental issues of our time. Mounting evidence stemming from more than 10 years of experimental, epidemiological and clinical studies has transformed the once generally discounted subject of endocrine disruptors into an issue of tremendous concern not only within the scientific community but among society as a whole.Following initial evidence from basic research, endocrine disruption in humans has now emerged as a major medical challenge. In this respect, puberty, a crucial developmental stage, has been definitively identified as a key window of vulnerability with regard to endocrine disruptors. Written by leading authorities in the field, Endocrine Disruptors and Puberty offers an engaging and comprehensive overview of this fascinating and rapidly growing problem. An indispensable resource for all clinicians and scientists interested in this challenging endocrinologic topic, Endocrine Disruptors and Puberty is a timely contribution that will help navigate a path toward understanding the problem and developing solutions.
Contents
