Unintended Consequences: A Review of Pharmacologically-Induced Priapism.

Sex Med Rev 2018 Nov 28. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Urology, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Priapism has been linked to many commonly prescribed medications, as well as recreational drugs and toxins. Although the incidence of priapism as a result of medication is small, the increasing use of antidepressants, antipsychotics, and recreational drugs may lead to more cases of pharmacologically-induced priapism in the future.

Aim: To provide a comprehensive, up-to-date review of the most common causes of pharmacologically induced priapism and discuss incidence, pathophysiology, and basic management strategies. Read More

Papaverine hydrochloride containing nanostructured lyotropic liquid crystal formulation as a potential drug delivery system for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

Drug Des Devel Ther 2018 12;12:2923-2931. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Institute of Pharmaceutical Technology and Regulatory Affairs, University of Szeged, Szeged, Hungary,

Purpose: Papaverine hydrochloride (PaHCl) is an old, well-known drug with spasmolytic activity but it has therapeutic effect in erectile dysfunction, too. As an intracavernous injection, it is not used in urologic clinics today because the side effects of the injection are pain, scarring or priapism. Our aim was to develop and test a topical semi-solid preparation containing PaHCl that would provide an alternative administration option by eliminating the undesirable side effects of the injection.

Department of Urology, Donghua Hospital Affiliated to Sun Yat-sen University, Dongguan, Guangdong 523120, China.

Priapism is a rare pathological penile erection, and there are some inadequacies in its definition, classification, diagnosis, and therapeutic strategies. In this article, we sum up our years of experience with priapism and put forward some new views and ideas about its definition, classification, pathophysiologic process, pathological change, diagnostic essentials, therapeutic measures, indications of successful treatment, and post-therapeutic rehabilitation of erectile function. We also describe the clinical features, diagnosis and treatment of some special types of priapism, such as intermittent seizure, sleep-related painful erection, and tumor-related priapism, hoping to help urologists and andrologists in the further understanding and management of priapism.

Clinical utility of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in genitourinary medicine.

Med Gas Res 2018 Jan-Mar;8(1):29-33. Epub 2018 Apr 18.

Department of Physiology and Biophysics, Stony Brook University School of Medicine, Stony Brook, NY, USA.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical technique which delivers oxygen at ambient pressures to increase the amount of dissolved oxygen in the blood and oxygen distribution to tissues. There are several beneficial properties of HBOT concomitant with elevated oxygen distribution in tissue including anti-inflammation, angiogenesis through vascular endothelial growth factor proliferation, augmented fibroblast activity through fibroblast growth factor proliferation, tissue and wound repair, enhancement of lymphocyte and macrophage activity, increased male testosterone secretion, and bactericidal activity. Given its renown in treating conditions such as decompression sickness and carbon monoxide poisoning, HBOT is making gradual strides for use in genitourinary medicine due to its low risk and likeliness to achieve favorable results.
