"Make it as long as you can, Doc." Concomitant surgical treatments with penile implant to enhance penile size.

Int J Impot Res 2020 May 18. Epub 2020 May 18.

University of Texas Medical School, Houston, TX, USA.

The constant refrain for patients seeking penile implant is, "can you make it bigger?" It is a different request when the patient is young and fully potent compared with the mature individual suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) for whom conservative therapies don't work. The purpose of this workshop is to review strategies to make the ED patient undergoing inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) have an enhanced penile appearance by having more of his phallus visible outside his body. Our common procedures are to use a combination of vacuum device preparation, oversizing the cylinders 1-2 cm, and daily aggressive cycling of the device for at least 6 months following implantation.

High levels of androgens cause chondrocyte accumulation and loss of smooth muscle in the mouse penile body†.

Biol Reprod 2020 May;102(6):1225-1233

Department of Physiology, Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, Carbondale, IL, USA.

Androgens are essential for penile development and for maintaining penile structural and functional integrity. Loss of androgen levels or function results in a decrease in smooth muscle content, accumulation of adipocytes in the corpora cavernosa, and inhibition of erectile function. Our previous studies with a mouse model (KiLHRD582G) of constitutive luteinizing hormone receptor activity also showed structural abnormalities in the penis caused by a decrease in smooth muscle content, accumulation of chondrocytes, and sexual dysfunction.

Masculinizing Genital Surgery: An Imaging Primer for the Radiologist.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 2020 01 26;214(1):W27-W36. Epub 2019 Nov 26.

Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Oregon Health and Science University, 3181 SW Sam Jackson Park Rd, MAC 3168C, Portland, OR 97239.

Masculinizing genital surgeries for transgender individuals are currently performed at only a select few centers; however, radiologists in any geographic region may be confronted with imaging studies of transgender patients. The imaging findings of internal and external genital anatomy of a transgender patient may differ substantially from the imaging findings of a cisgender patient. This article provides the surgical and anatomic basis to allow appropriate interpretation of preoperative and postoperative imaging findings. Read More
