  • The Effect of Distraction Techniques on Pain, Fear, and Anxiety in
           Children Undergoing Circumcision: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled
           Trials

    • Authors: Xiaofeng Wang, Hongquan Liu, Gonglin Tang, Fengze Sun, Gang Wu, Jitao Wu
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 18, Issue 1, January-February 2024.
      Circumcision is a common pediatric operation, and distraction technique can be used as an adjunct analgesic method during the perioperative period. The study aims to explore the effect of distraction techniques on reducing pain, fear, and anxiety in children undergoing circumcision. The PubMed, ClinicalTrials.gov, and Embase databases were searched for articles published from January 1, 2000, to December 31, 2023. Only randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were included. Meta-analysis and forest plots were carried out using Review Manager 5.4.1 software, and outcomes were reviewed by two authors independently. We used the Risk of Bias assessment form (ROB2) developed by the Cochrane Collaboration to assess the quality of included studies. PRISMA 2020 guidelines were used in this article to achieve the quantitative and qualitative synthesis of data. A total of seven RCTs were included. The intervention group consisted of 417 patients, while the control group had 245 patients. The meta-analysis and sensitivity analysis results showed that the distraction technique could significantly relieve pain (MD −1.3, 95% confidence interval [CI]: [−1.61 to −0.99], p < .00001), fear (SMD −1.04, 95%CI −1.68 to −0.4, p = .001), and anxiety (SMD −1.07, 95%CI [−1.64 to −0.51], p = .0002). Similarly, therapeutic play significant could significantly relieve fear (MD −0.4, 95%CI [−0.71 to −0.1], p = .01) and anxiety (SMD -1.31, 95%CI [−2.59 to −0.04], p = .04), virtual reality (VR) could significantly relieve anxiety (SMD −0.67, 95%CI [−0.98 to −0.37], p < .0001). Distraction techniques can alleviate perioperative pain, fear, and anxiety in children undergoing circumcision.

  • Bridging the Gap: Engaging Black Men in Lung Cancer Research Through
           Barbershop Collaboration

    • Authors: Miguel Negrete, Adeolu Ademiluyi, Evgenia Karayeva, George Eskridge, Matthew Huggins, Curtis M. Eskridge, Bobby D. Price, Kestutis G. Bendinskas, Karriem S. Watson, Sage J. Kim
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 18, Issue 1, January-February 2024.
      Health disparities persist among Black men, notably in the context of lung cancer and stress-related health outcomes. This study explores these disparities through a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach, citizen science, and social network theory, leveraging the expertise and trust of Black barbers as community leaders. The purpose is to understand the nuanced connections between stress and lung cancer in this demographic. Engaging 161 Black men across four Chicago neighborhoods, the study successfully collected hair samples and survey data, emphasizing the importance of culturally sensitive recruitment strategies. Findings highlight the effectiveness of the collaboration, showcasing the role of barbershops as community hubs for research. The study concludes by advocating for sustained partnerships with community leaders, emphasizing transparency in research communication, and promoting culturally grounded approaches to address health disparities and enhance research participation among underrepresented populations.

  • Are All Gay Men at Risk of Developing HIV/AIDS' Why China’s Mass HIV
           Testing Has Majorly Targeted Gay Men in the Era of Biomedicalization

    • Authors: Lei Yang, Zhipeng Sun
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 18, Issue 1, January-February 2024.
      Global HIV/AIDS responses have been increasingly biomedically dominated over the past years. In line with this shifting paradigm, China has prioritized mass HIV testing as a practical approach to controlling its HIV/AIDS epidemics among at-risk populations, especially gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM). This study analyzed why China’s mass HIV testing mainly targeted gay men by understanding the perspectives of public health professionals, community-based organization (CBO) workers, and gay men. In addition, this study revealed the tensions and unintended consequences of HIV/AIDS prevention and the representation of gay men in China. The study involved fieldwork conducted in a major city in Eastern China from 2015 to 2019. Semi-structured interviews were held with participants from the three abovementioned groups (N = 25). The study identified four processes concerning why gay men are mainly targeted for HIV testing. Some public health professionals believe that being a gay man is equivalent to having HIV/AIDS risks. In addition, this study particularly noted tensions between public health professionals and gay men, including gay men–identified CBO workers, over whether mass HIV testing should target gay men or anyone who engaged in sexual risk behaviors. This study argued that a particular focus on gay men due to pursuing biomedical advances in HIV/AIDS prevention seems to have unintendedly stereotyped gay men based on the presumptions that they are at risk of developing HIV/AIDS. In addition, this study corresponded to the broader social scientific discussion concerning whether HIV/AIDS intervention should target specific sexual risk practices or sexual identity/population.

  • Protect and Provide: Perceptions of Manhood and Masculinities Among
           Disabled Violently Injured Black Men in a Hospital-Based Violence
           Intervention Program

    • Authors: Nazsa S. Baker, Cortney VanHook, Tiffany Ricks, Christopher St. Vil, Teri Lassiter, Stephanie Bonne
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 18, Issue 1, January-February 2024.
      Exploring the post-injury lives of those who have survived gunshot wounds is essential to understanding the entire scope of firearm violence. The lives of Black male firearm violence survivors are transformed in various ways due to their injuries both visible and invisible. This study explored how Black men who suffer from disabilities via a firearm negotiated their masculine identities. Semi-structured, qualitative interviews were conducted with 10 violently injured Black men participating in a hospital-based violence intervention program. Survivors expressed their thoughts on how their injuries impacted their manhood and masculinities. Three themes emerged: (1) perceptions of manhood, (2) loss of independence and burden on others, and (3) and mobility. These themes highlighted and described how their lives were impacted post-injury and characterized their psychological and physical experience of recovery. The research findings suggest the need for more qualitative studies to further explore the relationship between firearm injury, Black masculinity, and perceptions of manhood. While Black men are understudied in health research and invisible in disability research, they continue to be hyper-invisible when discussing violently acquired disabilities.

  • Health Is Power, and Health Is Wealth: Understanding the Motivators and
           Barriers of African American/Black Male Immigrants With Gastrointestinal
           Conditions

    • Authors: Daina Potter, Pamela Valera
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 18, Issue 1, January-February 2024.
      The digestive health of African American/Black male immigrants in the United States has not been previously studied. Much of what is known about gastrointestinal (GI) concerns in this population is based on studies conducted on the overall Black American population. The purpose of this narrative study was to understand how African American/Black male immigrants with GI concerns navigated their GI condition. Fifteen African American/Black male immigrants from various cities in the United States participated in two remote focus groups to discover what motivates them to take control of their illness. Narrative analysis was used to analyze the qualitative data. Most men, 47% (n = 7), did not have health insurance, and 67% (n = 10) reported their income was less than US$52,000. The themes identified were: (1) lack of knowledge of GI, (2) denial of initial diagnosis, (3) self-discipline, (4) positive provider interactions, (5) health as a priority, and (6) advice to other African American/Black male immigrants experiencing GI. A strengths-based approach is necessary for describing the health-seeking behaviors among African American/Black male immigrants.

  • Penile Strangulation: Analysis of Postextrication Follow-Up, Sequelae, and
           a Review of Literature

    • Authors: Kevin J. Campbell, Elizabeth P. Kwenda, Shahab Bozorgmehri, Russell S. Terry, Lawrence L. Yeung
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 18, Issue 1, January-February 2024.
      Numerous case reports exist on penile strangulation injuries and extrication methods; however, the care and long-term consequences of penile strangulation injuries have been under-reported. Our aim is to investigate the long-term outcomes and sequalae following penile strangulation injuries. The PubMed Medline database was searched using the keyword string “penile strangulation,” “penis strangulation,” and “constriction” for all studies reporting outcomes of published penile strangulation injuries. Articles were evaluated for follow-up after strangulation injury, strangulating agent, extricating agent, and sequelae of injury. Fifty-six studies resulted with reports of 100 cases of penile strangulation and extrication from January 2000 to December 2019. The mean patient age was 41 (range: 3–86) years. Twenty-four (24/100) cases reported sequalae following extrication. Follow-up ranged from 2 weeks to 7 years with median follow-up time in the 7- to 12-month grouping. Metal rings comprised 36% (36/100) of strangulation agents and 50% of reported incidents were attributed to sexual activity. To our knowledge, this is the only study focusing on long-term outcomes after penile strangulation. This review provides a summary of 56 studies that document penile strangulation injuries over the last 20 years. Although a wide array of penile strangulation injuries have been documented in the literature, reports lack secondary management and long-term outcomes after removal of the strangulation device. We recommend that providers report long-term penile strangulation outcomes for future urologic evaluations after extrication.

  • Predicting Anxiety and Depression Among Erectile Dysfunction Patients: A
           Cross-Sectional Study

    • Authors: Nguyen Quang, Le Van Truong, Eric Chung, Bui Van Quang, Luu Quang Long, Nguyen Thanh Ngoc, Nguyen Thanh Minh, Do Mai Anh, Nguyen Dinh Thanh, Nguyen Truong Nam
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 18, Issue 1, January-February 2024.
      In Vietnam, erectile dysfunction (ED) is prevalent and recognized to be associated with mental disorders; however, societal taboos impede a comprehensive understanding of this connection. Our study aims to investigate the factors related to higher levels of anxiety and/or depression (HAD) in individuals with ED. Between November 2022 and March 2023, a face-to-face survey was conducted at the Center for Andrology of Viet Duc University Hospital, involving 390 patients diagnosed with ED. The survey included 51 questions covering general patient information, the International Index of Erectile Function-15 (IIEF-15), the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9), and the Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 (GAD-7). The stepwise Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) method was used to identify factors associated with HAD. The study revealed an average age of 37.63 (11.84) years among participants, with a HAD prevalence of 17.69%. Several factors were associated with a higher likelihood of belonging to the HAD group in ED patients. These factors included non-office workers (OR: 1.11; 95% CI: [1.01, 1.21], p = .025), medium and high levels of work-related stress (OR: 1.23; [1.06, 1.44], p = .008; OR: 1.22; [1.04, 1.45], p = .018), multiple shameful experiences related to ED (OR: 1.16; [1.08, 1.25], p < .001), moderate and severe ED (OR: 1.17; [1.03, 1.32], p = .013; OR: 1.31; [1.14, 1.51], p < .001), and dissatisfaction with intercourse skills (OR: 1.09; [1.01, 1.17], p = .028). Our findings suggest a 16% higher likelihood of HAD status in individuals with multiple shameful experiences related to ED, while moderate and severe ED are associated with respective increases of 17% and 31% in the likelihood. These findings emphasize the importance of considering mental health in the care of individuals with ED.

  • Sperm Selection Using Zona Pellucida–Binding Enhanced Embryo
           Morphokinetic and Clinical Outcomes in ICSI: A Sibling Oocytes Study

    • Authors: Mahin Izadi, Mohammad Ali Khalili, Mohammad Ebrahim Rezvani, Fatemeh Anbari, Behnam Maleki, Bryan Woodward, Behrouz Aflatoonian
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 18, Issue 1, January-February 2024.
      The objective was to investigate the embryo morphokinitics using a time-lapse monitoring (TLM) system and assessment of clinical outcomes following intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) with zona pellucida (ZP)-bound sperm selection and conventional methods. A total of 371 metaphase II (MII) oocytes from 50 ICSI cycles were studied. Sibling oocytes were randomly divided into control (n = 199) and ZP-bound group (n = 172). All resulting zygotes were cultured and monitored in the TLM system up to Day 3 after ICSI. Fertilization rate, early embryo development, and clinical outcomes were evaluated. No significant differences were found in fertilization rate, time-lapse qualitative and quantitative measures, pronuclear fading time (PNF) t2, t3, t4, t5, t6, and t7 (times of cleavage to 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 cells), respectively. However, the t8 (time of cleavage to eight cells) and cc3 (duration of third cell cycle) revealed a significant difference between control and ZP-bound groups (p < .05). A significant difference between the two groups (p < .05) in the rates of Grade A embryos (according to Basile algorithm), chemical pregnancy, clinical pregnancy, and implantation was observed. Sperm selection using biological materials, such as ZP, improved both embryo quality and pregnancy outcomes, despite not affecting the early embryo development and morphokinetic parameters up to t8. This prospective randomized sibling oocyte trial was registered in October 2020 to January 2022 (IRCT20200705048021N1).

  • Comparing the Strength of Associations Between Male Genital Problems and
           Mental Illnesses and Sleep Disorders

    • Authors: Ray M. Merrill, Dajeong Song, McKay K. Ashton
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 18, Issue 1, January-February 2024.
      This study compares the rate of selected types of mental illnesses (stress, anxiety, depression) and sleep disorders (insomnia, sleep apnea) according to the status of eight male genital problems. Analyses utilize medical claims data for male employees aged 18 to 64 years of a large corporation, 2017 to 2021. Approximately 1,076 (7.3%) men per year have one or more genital problems. The most common being benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH; 3.8%) and then erectile dysfunction (ED; 1.7%). For BPH patients, the rate experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, or a combination of these is 0.96%, 6.2%, 5.3%, and 5.1%, respectively. Corresponding rates for ED are 1.5%, 7.2%, 5.9%, and 7.5%. For BPH patients, the rate experiencing insomnia, sleep apnea, or both is 3.1%, 22.7%, and 2.0%, respectively. Corresponding rates for ED are 1.2%, 20.6%, and 2.2%. Male genital problems positively associate with having one or more mental illnesses (stress, anxiety, depression), except for hydrocele, with ED and penis disorder having the strongest associations. Male genital problems also positively associate with having insomnia and/or sleep apnea, except for infertility and orchitis, with BPH and ED having the strongest associations. The positive associations involving BPH and ED with mental illnesses are each more pronounced in the younger age group (18–49 vs. 50–64). Similar results are seen in the models involving sleep disorders. Thus, comorbid male genital problems, mental illnesses, and sleep disorders exist, with the strength of associations unique to the male genital problem and sometimes modified by age.

  • Exploring Preventive Health Care Utilization Among Black/African American
           Men

    • Authors: Harrell Jordan, Rohan Jeremiah, Karriem Watson, Colleen Corte, Alana Steffen, Alicia K. Matthews
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 18, Issue 1, January-February 2024.
      Black/African American (BAA) men have the lowest life expectancy among other major demographic groups in the United States, with BAA male mortality rates 40% higher than their White male counterparts. Despite known benefits of preventive health care utilization, BAA men are 43% more likely to use the emergency department for usual care. Many intersecting factors like medical mistrust and religion have been identified as common barriers BAA men face in health care utilization with few studies exploring factors that impact their current preventive health care utilization. In addition, BAA men’s perceptions of health and ability to identify or seek help have always been disproportionately lower than other racial groups despite higher rates of preventable diseases. Using the tenets of the Andersen Healthcare Utilization Model, this cross-sectional study of 176 BAA men explores BAA men’s current preventive health care practices while examining the intersection of predisposing, enabling, and need factors on BAA men’s preventive health care utilization. While it is well known that higher income levels and higher education positively influence health care utilization, the intersection of religious affiliation and higher levels of medical mistrust was associated with BAA men’s decreased engagement with health care as religion posed as a buffer to health care utilization. This study demonstrated that BAA men’s perception of health differed by sexual orientation, educational status, and income. However, across all groups the participants’ perspective of their health was not in alignment with their current health outcomes. Future studies should evaluate the impact of masculine norms as potential enabling factors on BAA men’s preventive health care utilization.

  • Exploring Barriers and Facilitators That Influence Uptake of Oral
           Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis Among Men Who Have Sex With Men in Bulawayo,
           Zimbabwe: Key Stakeholder’s Perspectives

    • Authors: Perez Livias Moyo, Wilfred Njabulo Nunu
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 18, Issue 1, January-February 2024.
      The world has been on the path to ending HIV and AIDS as a global threat by 2030; despite these efforts, the rate of new HIV infections among men who have sex with men remains very high. This study sought to explore the perceptions of key stakeholders on the potential barriers and facilitators of pre-exposure prophylaxis use among this key population. An exploratory, descriptive (through interviews) qualitative study was conducted on 10 key informants who were purposively selected and snowballed based on their knowledge and experience toward pre-exposure prophylaxis programming among men who have sex with men. The interviews were recorded, transcribed verbatim, coded, and thematically analyzed on MAXQDA. Stated barriers were stigma, lack of information, wrong messaging around pre-exposure prophylaxis, hearing negative things about the pills, the burden of taking pills daily, negative attitudes from health care providers, non-friendly health care facilities, pre-exposure prophylaxis not being affordable, and lack of flexibility and privacy from public hospitals. Identified facilitators were correct messaging on pre-exposure prophylaxis, long-lasting injectable pre-exposure prophylaxis, improved packaging, de-stigmatization, more friendly facilities, differentiated service approach, community groups, engagement, and partnership. To address these barriers and leverage the facilitators, it is imperative to have accessible, affordable services, non-judgmental health care providers, and peer support networks to empower men who have sex with men to make informed decisions regarding their sexual and reproductive health. Continued efforts to remove barriers and promote facilitators are crucial for maximizing the potential of pre-exposure prophylaxis as an effective HIV prevention tool among this population.

  • “In My Mind, It Was Just Temporary”: A Qualitative Study of the
           Impacts of Cancer on Men and Their Strategies to Cope

    • Authors: Corentin Montiel, Nathalie Bedrossian, André Myre, Asher Kramer, Alexia Piché, Meghan H. Mcdonough, Catherine M. Sabiston, Anika Petrella, Lise Gauvin, Isabelle Doré
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 18, Issue 1, January-February 2024.
      Individuals who are diagnosed and treated for cancer use a variety of strategies to manage its impacts. However, there is currently a lack of research on men’s experience with managing cancer impacts, which is necessary to better support them throughout the cancer care continuum. This study explored the experience of men diagnosed with cancer, focusing on the impacts of the illness and its treatment and men’s strategies to cope. A qualitative descriptive design was used. Thirty-one men (Mage = 52.7 [26–82] years) diagnosed with various cancer types were recruited to take part in individual telephone interviews (n = 14) or online focus groups (n = 17) addressing the impacts of cancer and strategies they used to cope with these impacts. Directed content analysis was performed, using Fitch’s (2008) supportive care framework to guide the analysis. Cancer impacts and strategies used to cope were classified into six categories: physical, psychological, interpersonal, informational, practical, and spiritual. Results indicate that the cancer experience is diverse and multifaceted rather than homogeneous. Medical and supportive care services could be more effectively personalized to meet the diversity of men’s needs by adopting a comprehensive and holistic approach to supportive care. Working in partnership with patients, it appears promising to recognize and identify men’s needs and match them to appropriate resources to provide truly supportive care.
