In Memoriam - Marcel D. Waldinger, MD, PhD

 Marcel Waldinger

It is with great sadness we announce the loss of one of our sexual medicine colleagues, Marcel Waldinger, on May 1.  Dr. Waldinger was a long time member of ISSWSH, most recently serving on the consensus panel for Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD). His landmark work in this area, caring for patients and examining the retaionship between PGAD and Restless Leg Syndrome will be included in the consensus document from this panel. Thus his work will continue posthumously.  Dr. Waldinger will also be remembered for his work in the area of premature ejaculation, helping to develop the content of measuring intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT) used in premature ejaculation clinical trials.  He was passionate about his work and about helping his patients, working cooperatively to further knowledge in the field.
