Treatment-resistant priapism associated with long-term low-molecular-weight heparin.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Apr 1;14(4). Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Cardiology, Galway Clinic, Galway, Ireland.

This case report summarises the case of a 56-year-old man with low-flow, ischaemic priapism requiring urgent insertion of a penile prosthesis following prophylactic anticoagulation with tinzaparin. Low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) has been proposed as a cause of ischaemic priapism, although reported cases of this are rare. This particular side effect of tinzaparin has been reported once in a case report in 2018, and there are scant other reports of LMWH-induced priapism. Read More

Injectable semi rigid penile prosthesis: study in rabbits and future perspectives.

Transl Androl Urol 2021 Feb;10(2):841-850

Head of Urology Department, Federal University of Pernambuco, Recife, Brazil.

Background: Penile prostheses are the third option in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, however, despite their proven effectiveness, the occurrence of infections, advanced age of patients and comorbidities are the main limiting factors for this treatment modality. In the continuous search for biointegrated, clinically durable and minimally invasive treatment options, a possible model of penile prosthesis was sought through the use of intracavernous bacterial cellulose (BC) gel, in an experimental model of orchiectomized rabbits.

Methods: Thirty adult New Zealand rabbits were equally distributed into three groups: BC; vehicle and control. Read More
