Bariatric surgery has been used for the treatment of obesity and has been suggested to have a significant impact on obesity-related conditions such as diabetes mellitus, ED and LUTS. Previous studies have investigated the effect of bariatric surgery on erectile and urological function in obese men; however those studies used long-term time points post-operatively (more than 1 month). Since it is now known that bariatric surgery can potentially induce glycaemic improvement within one week independent of weight loss, this study aimed to investigate the short-term effect in order to test the hypothesis as to whether improvement in urogenital function after bariatric surgery is due to weight loss or whether it is due to glycaemic improvement. Aim: To evaluate the baseline characteristics of patients with erectile dysfunction and to determine the early effects of bariatric surgery on erectile and urological function in morbidly obese men ...
