Background: Phimosis is a condition in which the foreskin cannot be portrayed on the glans. It is a physiological and common condition in the pediatric age. The pathological form derives from an inflammatory or traumatic lesion. Circumcision is the most common surgical treatment of phimosis but it is a controversial practice, especially in occidental world. Methods: We enrolled 61 patients with pathological phimosis (22/balanoposthitis, 18/painful erection, 21/urinary discomfort) between 2015-2017...

BACKGROUND: Sexual problems are common among midlife men and women, and studies have identified a range of demographic, health, and relational correlates. Research on prevalence of these sexual problems within Canada is sparse and is warranted given the unique context related to provision of health care services in contrast to other countries. AIM: We investigated sexual problems (women's low desire, orgasm difficulties, and vaginal pain, as well as men's low desire, erection difficulties, and ejaculation difficulties) and their correlates among a large sample of Canadian men and women aged 40-59 years...

Penile erection is a hemodynamic process consisting of 2 synchronized components in which the first (active) requires proper vascular endothelium functioning, whereas the second one (passive) is based on a veno-occlusive mechanism. Antihypertensive treatment reduces the passive component, often leading to the development of erectile dysfunction (ED), but lifestyle modifications can improve the sexual functioning. The study aimed to evaluate the association between blood pressure (BP) reduction caused by cardiovascular training and the intensity of ED in men with coronary heart disease...

A new species Carpinus tibetana Z. Qiang Lu & J. Quan Liu from southeast Tibet is described and illustrated. The specimens of this new species were previously identified and placed under C. monbeigiana Hand.-Mazz. or C. mollicoma Hu. However, the specimens from southeast Tibet differ from those of C. monbeigiana from other regions with more lateral veins (19-24 vs 14-18) on each side of the midvein and dense pubescence on the abaxial leaf surface, while from those of C. mollicoma from other regions differ by nutlet with dense resinous glands and glabrous or sparsely villous at apex...

Priapism is a pathological condition of persistent penile erection in the absence of sexual arousal or desire. It is an urological emergency and its identification is important as lack of prompt treatment can result in erectile dysfunction. The aim of this study was to estimate and describe the characteristics (number of episodes, duration, time of occurrence and evolution) of priapism in patients with sickle cell disease. A bibliographical research was carried out in PubMed, searching for papers published in the last 5 years...

Background: Rhinorhipidae Lawrence, 1988 is an enigmatic beetle family represented by a single species, Rhinorhipus tamborinensis Lawrence, 1988, from Australia, with poorly established affinities near the superfamily Elateroidea (click beetles, soldier beetles and fireflies) or the more inclusive series (infraorder) Elateriformia. Its evolutionary position may inform the basal relationships of the suborder Polyphaga, the largest clade of Coleoptera. Results: We analyzed four densely sampled DNA datasets of major coleopteran lineages for mitogenomes, rRNA genes and single copy nuclear genes...

Men's sexual health can have significant effects on a man's self-esteem, sexual relationship and male reproductive functions. Although commercially available drugs (e.g., VIAGRA and CIALIS) show effective treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED), patients with severe ED fail to respond to these medicines. Topical nitric-oxide (NO) delivery to penis can be a painless, alternative solution with severe ED because NO triggers erection and diffuses to the trabecular arteries and smooth muscles in the penis. We here develop water-in-oil (W/O) nanoemulsions (NEs) that contain NO and can directly spread on the penis...

Marine biodiversity in the Coral Triangle is several times higher than anywhere else, but why this is true is unknown because of poor historical data. To address this, we compared the first available record of fossil cheilostome bryozoans from Indonesia with the previously sampled excellent record from the Caribbean. These two regions differ several-fold in species richness today, but cheilostome diversity was strikingly similar until the end of the Miocene 5.3 million years ago so that the modern disparity must have developed more recently...

Background: Neuroimaging studies have demonstrated that the prefrontal cortex and amygdala play an important role in sexual arousal (SA). However, little is known about the interactions between the prefrontal and cortex amygdala, which mediate the cognitive regulation of emotion and SA. Objective: We seek to determine whether nocturnal erection of psychogenic erectile dysfunction (pED) patients are normal and whether there are changes of topological organization in the prefrontal-amygdala pathway of brain network in pED...

BACKGROUND: Penile erection is a complex reflex under spinal control and modulated by the brain. The hemodynamic events under autonomic control and the perineal muscles somatic activity are interconnected during the reflex erection at the spinal level, however if the afferent feedback on the corpus cavernosum pressure during an erection affects the somatic activity (perineal muscles contractions) and vice versa is not known. This study was aimed to test this hypothesis using a rat model...

Penile curvature is a common urological disease. Tunical plication for correction of penile curvature has been much popularized being simpler, adjustable to avoid overcorrection, less bleeding, and less postoperative erectile dysfunction. This study aims to assess the results of modified 16-dot plication technique for correction of congenital and acquired penile curvature and avoidance of knot-associated complications. Eighteen patients underwent correction of their penile curvature using the modified 16-dot plication technique between January 2014 and October 2015...

Platypnoea Orthodeoxia syndrome is defined by dyspnoea and hypoxaemia exacerbated by orthostatic positioning and alleviated in recumbency. This condition has been reported in association with pulmonary, hepatic and cardiac disease. We describe a case herein of a 79 year old female who developed severe hypoxaemia and dyspnoea post laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A difference in arterial blood gas oxygen tension was demonstrated in the supine and erect positions on arterial blood gas analysis. A Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) with a right to left shunt was evident on echocardiogram employing colour doppler and agitated normal saline studies...

BACKGROUND: As arterial stiffness increases in the absence of subjective symptoms, a personal indicator that reflects increased risk of cardiovascular disease is necessary. Penile erection is regulated by vascular function, and atherosclerosis affects the penile artery earlier than it affects the coronary and carotid arteries. Therefore, we hypothesized that deterioration of erectile function could be a marker of increased risk for cardiovascular disease. To test our hypothesis, we assessed erectile function and arterial stiffness in a cross-sectional study...

Genital lichen sclerosus et atrophicus is an uncommon genital dermatosis. Its resemblance to vitiligo especially during the earlier stages leads to delay in its diagnosis. Apart from the common complications such as meatal stenosis, balanoposthitis, phimosis and painful erections, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a rare but ominous complication of genital LSA. Herein, we present a case of long standing penile LSA complicated by SCC stressing upon the requirement of early diagnosis and management of LSA.
