OBJECTIVES: To assess clinical safety (primary) and efficacy (secondary) of histotripsy for treatment of symptomatic benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) in a first-in human study. METHODS: Twenty-five male subjects with moderate to severe lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), prostate size between 30 and 80 grams and no evidence of prostate cancer were enrolled at two sites in a prospective, single-arm study. Treatment consisted of acoustic energy delivery through the perineum with integrated real-time TRUS monitoring using the Vortx RX system...

RATIONALE: Hydrofluoric acid (HF) is a highly corrosive agent and can cause corrosive burns. HF can penetrate deeply into tissues through intact skin and the lipid barrier, leading to painful liquefactive necrosis, and inducing hypocalcemia and hypomagnesemia. In this study, we hypothesize that continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) may be beneficial in addressing hemodynamic instability in cases of HF poisoning. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 25-year-old man fell into an electroplating pool containing 10% HF and 50% nitric acid...

BACKGROUND: Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. Women with gestational diabetes are more likely to experience adverse health outcomes such as pre-eclampsia or polyhydramnios (excess amniotic fluid). Their babies are also more likely to have health complications such as macrosomia (birthweight > 4000 g) and being large-for-gestational age (birthweight above the 90th percentile for gestational age). Current clinical guidelines support elective birth, at or near term in women with gestational diabetes to minimise perinatal complications, especially those related to macrosomia...

PURPOSE: Perineal pain developing during the postpartum period affects women's relationships with their families and infants. The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of cold gel pad application for relieving perineal pain and possibly increasing mothers' comfort after vaginal delivery.

Ectopic breast tissue and male breast cancer are both very rare diseases with only a few reports in the literature. Here, we present the first case of ectopic male breast cancer in the perineum. The patient was a 70-year-old man with a palpable mass in the perineum. A wide local excision and inguinal lymph node dissection revealed invasive breast carcinoma of no special type involving the skin and subcutis, and inguinal lymph node metastases. Immunohistochemical staining showed that the tumor cells were strongly positive for estrogen and progesterone receptors and negative for human epidermal growth factor receptor 2...

Fournier's gangrene is a fatal necrotising fasciitis of the perineum, genitals and lower abdomen. Patients often need an aggressive surgical debridement, and in few cases, a diverting colostomy. We report the case of a 70-year-old man with multiple comorbidities diagnosed with Fournier's gangrene, who underwent debridement and had a wound complication due to faecal contamination. A novel, self-retaining rectal device was used to perform faecal diversion, which subsequently showed wound healing within a week, hence avoiding the need of a colostomy...

BACKGROUND: Catheter-related bladder discomfort (CRBD) to an indwelling urinary catheter is defined as a painful urethral discomfort, resistant to conventional opioid therapy, decreasing the quality of postoperative recovery. According to anatomy, the branches of sacral somatic nerves form the afferent nerves of the urethra and bladder triangle, which deriving from the ventral rami of the second to fourth sacral spinal nerves, innervating the urethral muscles and sphincter of the perineum and pelvic floor; as well as providing sensation to the penis and clitoris in males and females, which including the urethra and bladder triangle...

Lipoblastoma is a rare and benign tumor arising from embryonal fat cells. It is generally diagnosed in children younger than 3 years of age and can occur in the extremities or on the trunk. We present our series of 10 children with lipoblastoma treated at Schneider Children's Medical Center of Israel between 2011 and 2016. Six boys and four girls underwent tumor resection at a median age of 2 years and 3 months (range 5 months to 5.6 years). Locations were trunk (6), groin (2), perineum (1), and omentum (1)...

Aggressive angiomyxoma (AA) is an uncommon mesenchymal tumour that is principally located in the soft tissues of the pelvis and perineum of young women. The primary features of this benign tumour are a local invasion, a high local recurrence rate and non-specific local clinical signs. We describe the case of a 58-year-old woman, initially treated for a Bartholin's cyst. Histological examination indicated the presence of an AA. The MRI showed a 7 cm soft tissue mass extending from the lateral wall of the vagina, into the left buttock and down into the subcutaneous tissue...

Aggressive angiomyxoma (AAM) is a rare mesenchymal tumour of pelvis and perineum, almost exclusively occurring in females. We are reporting a case of a 53-year-old gentleman who presented with a long standing inguinoscrotal swelling misdiagnosed as inguinal hernia, for which he underwent incomplete excision at local hospital and then was referred to our centre for completion surgery.

INTRODUCTION: Dermatomes are an important component of medical curricula and clinical practice. In addition to the intrinsic complexity of dermatome maps, their discrepancies in the literature make their learning among students even more difficult. These discrepancies are particularly evident in the lower deltoid ("regimental badge" area) and upper back. The aims of our study were firstly to identify and compare published versions of the dermatome map focusing on depictions of the "regimental badge" area and upper back, secondly to assess the perceived confidence and knowledge of dermatomes among medical students, and finally to create and introduce a simplified dermatome map...

BACKGROUND: The female perineum becomes suffused and stretched during pregnancy, and further strain during vaginal childbirth contributes to approximately 85% of women experiencing some degree of trauma to the perineal region. Multiple factors play a role in the type and severity of trauma experienced, including parity, delivery method, and local practices. There is ongoing debate about best midwifery practice to reduce perineal trauma. Once perineal trauma has occurred, treatment also varies greatly, depending on its degree and severity, local practice and customs, and personal preference...

Urethral duplications are extremely rare congenital malformations. The most used classification is that of Effmann and Lebowitz, describing 6 types of urethral duplications. The under type IIA2-Y is one of the most rare duplications corresponding to duplicated urethra originating from the bladder neck and extending toward the ectopic perineal or anal insertion. We here report the case of a 32 year patient, with no previous personal history, suffering from urinary leakage during and after urination since childhood...

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common condition among men and has several causes. Among men under the age of 40, pelvic or perineal trauma is the most common cause of ED. Pelvic or perineal trauma often results in arterial injury as the likely mechanism of ED. We present the case of a 14-year-old male diagnosed with a pseudoaneurysm causing arteriogenic ED secondary to blunt force trauma to the perineum. We successfully managed arteriogenic ED with superselective embolization using microcoils. We also conclude through a review of the literature that microcoil and Gelfoam yield similar outcomes...

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the bulbar urethra accompanied by lichen sclerosus (LS) is rarely reported. This study reports the case of a 56-year-old man with urethral squamous cell carcinoma (USCC) accompanied by a long history of genital LS. The man presented with a painful perineal mass and had a long-term history of urethral strictures and urethral dilatation. The patient developed a periurethral abscess that expanded to the perineum and formed an urethrocutaneousperineal fistula. An organ-sparing perineal resection and fistulectomy was performed according to the patient's wishes...
