Yih Chyn Phan, Wasim Mahmalji
A 65-year-old gentleman, with no past medical problems and not on any anticoagulation was seen in the urology clinic with persistent hematospermia for the last few years. A thorough history and examination including a digital examination of the prostate was unremarkable. Bleeding from his female partner was also ruled out. Investigations such as prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test, urine culture, semen culture, and flexible cystoscopy were performed, and these investigations were also within normal limits...

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is characterized by an enlargement of the prostate accompanied by an increase in prostatic blood perfusion and vascularization. The most indicated treatment is to perform orchiectomy, however, medical treatment with finasteride can be an option for breeding dogs or elderly animals with a critical health status. In dogs, the influence of medical treatment on prostatic hemodynamics is still unknown. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the effects of benign prostatic hyperplasia and finasteride therapy on hemodynamic and vascular features of the canine prostate...

Hematospermia is defined by the presence of blood in the semen typically occurring in men younger than 40 years of age. Symptoms can occur due to a multitude of reasons, but are usually benign and self-limiting, requiring no additional treatment or evaluation. Despite this, the condition often impairs quality of life due to associated anxiety and must be taken seriously by the patient and the physician, particularly if recurrent, refractory, and painful. The etiology of hematospermia can be classified into inflammatory, infectious, lithiasis, cystic, obstructive, tumoral, vascular, traumatic, iatrogenic, and systemic origin...

In this report we address an unusual adverse effect of finasteride (Propecia 1 mg tablets) that was associated with painless hematuria and hematospermia in a 38-year-old healthy male during treatment of androgenic alopecia at a dose of 1 mg/day. It was found that the bleeding was linked to finasteride use as it occurred 2-3 days after use and stopped upon discontinuation of the drug. The patient was subjected to urological examination, laboratory investigations, and radiological imaging to identify the probable cause of bleeding...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Transurethral seminal vesiculoscopy (TSV) provides an efficient approach to diagnose and treat hematospermia, but still needs further improvement in manipulation and corresponding instruments. In this study, we develop an innovative technique with ultrasonic lithotripter (EMS) to treat severe, persistent hematospermia. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data of patients who underwent TSV with or without ultrasonic lithotripter between May 2012 and December 2015 was reviewed...

Hematospermia or hemospermia is defined as the presence of blood in ejaculate. The true prevalence of the condition is unknown because many cases escape the patient's notice, and remain unrecognized and unreported. There are two main aims in the patient evaluation: first, to ensure that there is no specific condition that is treatable; second, to reassure the patient's parents that no causative factor is present. Many physicians are unfamiliar with this disorder and this forms the basis for our current review...

PURPOSE: To evaluate whether ultrasound-guided compression performed immediately after transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided prostate biopsy decreases bleeding complications. METHODS: We prospectively evaluated a total of 148 consecutive patients who underwent TRUS-guided prostate biopsy between March 2015 and July 2016. Systematic 12-core prostate biopsy was performed in all patients. Of these, 100 patients were randomly assigned to one of two groups: the compression group (n = 50) underwent TRUS-guided compression on bleeding biopsy tracts immediately after prostate biopsy, while the non-compression group (n = 50) underwent TRUS-guided prostate biopsy alone...

Most men with hematospermia or hemospermia (HS) are young (<40 years of age), presenting with transient or episodic HS without other signs or symptoms of disease. The condition is self-limiting in most cases and idiopathic in nature. When a cause can be identified, infections of the urogenital tract are the most common. Imaging does not play a role in this patient population. In older men (>40 years of age), clinical screening for prostate cancer is advised. Furthermore, when HS is persistent or has symptoms, causes include obstruction or stricture at the level of the verumontanum, calcifications or calculi in the prostate, ejaculatory ducts or seminal vesicles, and cysts arising within these structures...

Whilst hematospermia may indicate urological disease, it is a rare manifestation of severe systemic hypertension. We describe the case of a young man with hematospermia associated with a blood pressure of 228/135. Blood pressure treatment led to resolution of his hematospermia. Physicians must be aware of this potential association.

BACKGROUND: Hematospermia, or blood in the ejaculate, is a symptom with many possible causes that often gives rise to worry. Precise figures on its prevalence are unavailable. It is most common in men under 40, and its cause is usually benign; nonetheless, even a single episode of hematospermia calls for a basic diagnostic evaluation. METHODS: This review is based on pertinent articles re trieved by a search in PubMed with the key words "hemato spermia," "hemospermia," "ejaculation," "male semen," and "transrectal ultrasound...

Hematospermia is a common complaint among patients seen in outpatient urology clinics. The differential diagnosis is broad and includes inflammatory, infectious, neoplastic, structural, systemic, and traumatic causes. The most common infectious causes are uropathogens and sexually transmitted infections. However, with increasing global travel, physicians must maintain a high clinical suspicion for pathogens not endemic to their region, including Echinococcus , Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and Schistosoma .1 We present a case of hematospermia in a traveler returning from Eastern Africa with exposure to Lake Malawi...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is an important tool for the management of urolithiasis. The effects of shockwaves on tissues are established. The aim of this meta-analysis is to evaluate the microscopic semen characteristics of young men before and after ESWL treatment for lower ureteral calculi. METHODS: Literature searches were performed following the Cochrane guidelines. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis that included six trials that investigated the effects of ESWL on semen parameters, including sperm concentration, motility, and hematospermia...
