Abdominal Manifestations of Sickle Cell Disease.

Curr Probl Diagn Radiol 2020 Jun 1. Epub 2020 Jun 1.

Department of Radiology and Imaging, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, GA.

Sickle cell disease is a debilitating hematologic process that affects the entire body. Disease manifestations in the abdomen most commonly result from vaso-occlusion, hemolysis, or infection due to functional asplenia. Organ specific manifestations include those involving the liver (eg, hepatopathy, iron deposition), gallbladder (eg, stone formation), spleen (eg, infarction, abscess formation, sequestration), kidneys (eg, papillary necrosis, infarction), pancreas (eg, pancreatitis), gastrointestinal tract (eg, infarction), reproductive organs (eg, priapism, testicular atrophy), bone (eg, marrow changes, avascular necrosis), vasculature (eg, vasculopathy), and lung bases (eg, acute chest syndrome, infarction).

Sickle cell disease as a vascular disorder.

Expert Rev Hematol 2020 Jun 3;13(6):645-653. Epub 2020 May 3.

Department of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh , Pittsburgh, USA.

Introduction: In sickle cell disease (SCD), hemoglobin S (HbS) red blood cells (RBCs) are characteristically deformed and inflexible. Often breaking down in the circulation, they exhibit increased adhesive properties with the endothelium and activated neutrophils and platelets, increasing the risk of occlusion of the microcirculation. SCD is categorized into two sub-phenotypes: hyperhemolytic, associated with priapism, leg ulcers, pulmonary hypertension, and stroke, and high hemoglobin/viscosity, which may promote vaso-occlusion-associated pain, acute chest syndrome, and osteonecrosis.

Sonography of the penis/erectile dysfunction.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2020 Jul;45(7):1973-1989

Department of Radiology, Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc, Avenue Hippocrate, 10, 1200, Brussels, Belgium.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as the persistent inability to achieve and/or maintain an erection for a satisfactory sexual activity. It is secondary to several organic, psychogenic, and combined causes, and represents a serious health dilemma affecting both men and their partners. The diagnostic approach to erectile dysfunction has significantly changed in the last years with the advent of phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) inhibitors, and with the recognition that surgical treatment of both arterial insufficiency and penile venous leak have poor long-term clinical outcomes.

The Red Blood Cell-Inflammation Vicious Circle in Sickle Cell Disease.

Front Immunol 2020 13;11:454. Epub 2020 Mar 13.

Laboratoire Interuniversitaire de Biologie de la Motricité (LIBM) EA7424, Team Vascular Biology and Red Blood Cell, Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Université de Lyon, Lyon, France.

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a genetic disease caused by a single mutation in the β-globin gene, leading to the production of an abnormal hemoglobin called hemoglobin S (HbS), which polymerizes under deoxygenation, and induces the sickling of red blood cells (RBCs). Sickled RBCs are very fragile and rigid, and patients consequently become anemic and develop frequent and recurrent vaso-occlusive crises. However, it is now evident that SCD is not only a RBC rheological disease. Read More

High-flow post-traumatic priapism: diagnostic and therapeutic workup.

J Ultrasound 2020 Mar 20. Epub 2020 Mar 20.

Department of General and Emergency Radiology, "Antonio Cardarelli" Hospital, Antonio Cardarelli St 9, 80131, Naples, Italy.

Priapism is a prolonged penile tumescence or erection unrelated to sexual stimulation that lasts more than 6 h. High-flow priapism is a rare condition usually due to a perineal trauma with the formation of an arterio-cavernosal fistula between a cavernosal artery and the lacunar spaces of the penis. High-flow priapism is usually diagnosed by clinical examination and color Doppler ultrasound, and the gold standard therapeutic management is represented by digital subtraction angiography.

The James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute and Department of Urology, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA.

: Priapism is prolonged penile erection in the absence of sexual arousal or desire and is a devastating condition affecting millions of patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) globally. Available drug treatments for SCD-related priapism remain limited and have been primarily reactive rather than preventive. Hence, there is an unmet need for new drug targets and pharmacologic therapies. Read More

High levels of proinflammatory cytokines IL-6 and IL-8 are associated with a poor clinical outcome in sickle cell anemia.

Ann Hematol 2020 May 5;99(5):947-953. Epub 2020 Mar 5.

Department of Clinical Pathology, School of Medical Sciences, State University of Campinas - UNICAMP, Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil.

Sickle cell anemia (SCA) pathophysiology is characterized by the activation of sickle red blood cells, reticulocytes, leukocytes, platelets, and endothelial cells, and with the expression of several inflammatory molecules. Therefore, it is conceivable that variations in levels of proinflammatory cytokines may act as a signaling of differential clinical course in SCA. Here, we evaluated the clinical impact of proinflammatory cytokines interleukin 1-β (IL-1β), interleukin 6 (IL-6), and interleukin 8 (IL-8) in 79 patients with SCA, followed in a single reference center from northeastern Brazil.

Effect of Intracorporeal Human Adipose-Derived Stem Cells (hADSCs) on Corpora Cavernosa Transforming Growth Factor β (TGFβ) and Collagen Type I Concentration in Wistar Rat Priapism Model.

Res Rep Urol 2020 5;12:21-27. Epub 2020 Feb 5.

Department of Urology, Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Padjadjaran, General Hospital Hasan Sadikin, Bandung, Indonesia.

Introduction: The ischemic process in priapism can lead to displacement of normal tissue with fibrotic tissue, due to collagen deposition, and eventually leads to erectile dysfunction. Many studies have identified that the supernatant of adipose tissue-derived stem cells (ADSCs) significantly ameliorates fibrosis of different tissue, but limited attention has been paid to its efficacy on fibrosis of the corpora cavernosa.

Methods: A total of 22 Wistar rats divided into five groups, with two groups each consisting of five male wistar rats with priapism without human ADSC (hADSC) therapy (group I) and two other groups consisting of five rats with priapism, were given 10 cells' intracorporeal hADSC injection after 12 hours of penile clamping (group II) were euthanized after 2 and 4 weeks of observation.

Priapism associated with lumbar stenosis: case report and literature review.

J Spine Surg 2019 Dec;5(4):596-600

Department of Neurosurgery, UCSF Medical Center, San Francisco, CA, USA.

Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is characterized by narrowing of the central canal, lateral recesses, or foramina leading to compression of neural tissue. The clinical syndrome associated with LSS is usually neurogenic claudication, which often presents as lower back and extremity pain, numbness, and tingling upon ambulation. Autonomic dysfunction is rarely observed in patients with LSS; however, a subset of male patients has been reported to experience intermittent priapism associated with the onset of neurogenic claudication symptoms.

High-flow, or nonischemic, priapism occurs in <5% of observed clinical presentations of all priapism and is characterized by prolonged, painless erection in the context of pelvic and genitourinary trauma. While conservative management can be safely attempted for many cases of high-flow priapism (HFP), selective embolization is becoming the preferred approach as it allows for rapid resolution. We, herein, present a case of a 42-year-old male patient who presented with trauma-induced HFP treated with selective embolization and briefly review the current literature regarding the management of HFP.

The experience of the adolescent with homozygous sickle-cell disease is influenced by several factors that differentiate it from the older child entirely dependent on his parents. The objective of this study was to describe the state of health and to assess the quality of follow-up and to identify the determinants of poor monitoring of adolescent sickle-cell followed in Brazzaville for an average of 12 ± 9.6 years, starting from a cross-sectional study carried out at the Brazzaville University Hospital from March to September 2016.

A case of proximal partial priapism successfully treated with autologous clot embolisation.

Andrologia 2020 Apr 22;52(3):e13510. Epub 2020 Jan 22.

Department of Interventional Radiology, Cerrahpasa Medical Faculty, Istanbul University-Cerrahpasa, Istanbul, Turkey.

Partial priapism is a rare disorder in literature and generally described as a contusion or thrombosis of the cavernous body of the penis secondary to blunt trauma. Because of the rarity of disease, there is not much information about the treatment. Conservative management with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug is often applied treatment. Read More

Malignancy: A Rare, Important and Poorly Understood Cause of Priapism.

Sex Med Rev 2020 Jan 2. Epub 2020 Jan 2.

Department of Urology, University College London Hospital, 47 Wimpole St, London W1G 8SE, UK. Electronic address:

Introduction: Priapism is rare yet has the potential to inflict significant suffering on patients, often with lasting consequences such as erectile dysfunction, corporal muscle necrosis, and a loss of sexual function. Although rare, it is a pathology that has received little focus in the literature, particularly that caused by malignancy, and it is in this form that the long-term prognosis becomes particularly poor.

Aim: This review looks at malignant priapism in detail moving from the etiology and pathogenesis through investigations and management to provide an up-to-date picture. Read More

Malignant priapismus induced by adenocarcinoma of the prostate.

Urol Case Rep 2020 Mar 16;29:101102. Epub 2019 Dec 16.

Department of Pediatric, Hasan Sadikin Hospital, Universitas Padjajaran, Indonesia.

Penile metastasis of adenocarcinoma of prostate is an extremely rare clinical entity and even less of such cases presenting with malignant priapism. Management of priapism with penile shunting is recommended in this case. No consensus beyond personal recommendation from other studies found in this case due to the relative rarity of the disease and the associated lack of data. Read More
