American Urology Association And Italian Researchers Further Edify MediSys Corporation's Medical Model


11/27/2006 10:44:28 AM

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- MediSys Corporation CEO Joshua Konigsberg announced that October's UroToday(R) reported that Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) frequently coexist. The abstract quoted is based on highly credible industry sources that have MediSys thrilled about the future of its business.

The American Urology Association abstract quoted is based on research performed by Italian researchers. In the study, the number of diseased coronary arteries, age, and diabetes were statistically significant and independent predictors of ED. Patients with ED had a four-fold increase in the risk of multi-vessel Coronary Artery Disease. The researchers concluded that ED is frequently found in patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome, and ED presence is a useful test to predict extension of Coronary Artery Disease in Acute Coronary Syndrome.

While MediSys has been demonstrating that ED is a condition linked to many underlying diseases since commencing development of the MaxLife Centers for Men(TM) in late 2002, only recently has the mainstream medical community started recognizing the relationship between such diseases as coronary artery disease and ED.

CEO Konigsberg said, "What is important about these additional findings is that it will increase our credibility to patients in our licensed clinics for the right reasons; to uncover the underlying disease and not just for sexual restoration. All of our MaxLife Center for Men(TM) licensed clinics are qualified to identify these diseases (and others) earlier in the disease process, and thus they can improve the quality of patient care."

Dr. Ralph Benson, MediSys' Medical Director, a past Chairman of Urology at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL said, "This is important news and proves MediSys Corporation is ahead of the curve and has been -- and is -- on the right track. The Medical Community seems to be catching up."
