  • Aims and objectives of this session

    This session will provide the audience with latest news regarding pathophysiological mechanisms behind erectile dysfunction. Furthermore, evidence from in vitro and animal studies on possible new treatment options for erectile dysfunction, peyronies disease and hypogonadism will be presented. The audience will walk away with an idea of the future direction in the world of andrology.

  • Poster viewing of 20 minutes. Presentations will take place on stage. Standard presentations are 2 minutes in length, followed by 2 minutes for discussion. Extended presentations (*) are 3 minutes in length, followed by 3 minutes for discussion.
