Spanish andrologist talks about PFS

I have seen that doctor Eduard Garcia-Cruz, andrologist in Spain, has given a conference about the post-finasteride syndrome at least in two urology congresses:

  • European Association of Urology Annual Congress
  • National Congress of Andrology of Portugal

Here’s his presentation in this last congress:

I’ll translate what he says in the slide 13, as it is in Spanish:


  • Defining a survey.
  • Creating a website to inform patients.
  • Use Survey Monkey.
  • Using Social Networks to spread out the intiative.
  • Analyze the data."

I don’t know if he has any relation with the PFS foundation.


Thanks @kan.

I think this will be of interest to @awor.

He is basically proposing what we already did with the survey. I will let him know about this, maybe it and our results are of interest to him.


except we went a lot further than survey monkey :smile:

The requirement for structured data, even if it is only scientifically considered pilot data, was an urgent need. I think when the participant targets are met the findings will be of broad interest and very powerful.


Yes, that’s why I thought that he may have had some relation with you or the foundation. But I also imagine this is just a logical approach to the current situation.

Also, this presentation is from 2016. Probably he hasn’t created any survey so far, because if he had I imagine we would have heard about it through the foundation or the forum. So he probably will be very interested in the survey that you designed.

I will visit him next week. He probably won’t give me more information than what we already know, but I’ll see if he has a real interest in PFS and what are his views on the illness.

It would be helpful to suggest that if he is seeing other patients with PFS that he could send them here to take our survey.
