1/548. Penile stump advancement as an alternative to perineal urethrostomy after penile amputation.

    PURPOSE: We describe a method for avoiding perineal urethrostomy, and maintaining penile cosmesis and function after penile amputation. MATERIALS AND methods: Penile reconstruction was performed in 1 patient with traumatic total amputation of the penis and 1 undergoing near total penectomy for carcinoma by advancing the penile stump and covering the resultant phallus with rotational full thickness scrotal flaps. RESULTS: Both patients were able to void while standing, and have intact sensation and erectile capability in the residual neophallus. CONCLUSIONS: Perineal urethrostomy is not necessary after penopubic penile amputation. Advancement of residual cavernosal tissue and skin coverage with scrotal flaps minimize altered body image, and maintain sensation and normal voiding position. ( info)

2/548. The clinical superiority of continuous exposure versus short-pulsed carbon dioxide laser exposures for the treatment of pearly penile papules.

    Treatment of pearly penile papules was performed both with a conventional continuous-wave (CW) and a newer generation high energy pulsed carbon dioxide laser. When compared to the short pulsed laser, the CW laser, using relatively low power densities, provided superior hemostasis and improved visualization of the operative field. Despite the increase in thermal injury, wound healing was not compromised. The results of this case report support the CO2 laser in CW mode as the infrared laser treatment of choice for exophytic lesions with increased vascularity. ( info)

3/548. Phantom erection after amputation of penis. Case description and review of the relevant literature on phantoms.

    BACKGROUND: perception of a phantom limb is frequent after an amputation of an upper or lower extremity. Phantom penis is reported infrequently. METHOD: Case description and literature review. RESULT: The phenomenon of phantom penis followed total penectomy. Several aspects were unusual, particularly the existence with phantom only in the erect state, and associated recrudescence of a preoperative painful ulcer. General features of limb phantoms after amputation are reviewed including a resume of recent studies of cortical reorganization. The phantom process is analyzed looking for clues to the nature of the underlying neural organization. The puzzle of phantom pain is briefly touched on. CONCLUSION: The development of the phantom is attributed to activity in the deafferented parietal sensory cortex. ( info)

4/548. Free vascularized appendix transfer for reconstruction of penile urethras with severe fibrosis.

    Despite the development of newer techniques with a free radial forearm tube flaps for phallus reconstruction, severe urethral strictures are still seen in such cases after irradiation or repeated infection because of the paucity of healthy, well-vascularized tissue. For urethral reconstruction in cases with poorly vascularized tissue as well as for total penile creation, a new technique involving a free vascularized appendix transfer combined with a radial forearm osteocutaneous flap was successfully used in two cases. The appendix provides a normal tube structure composed of a muscular tubular layer lined with mucosal epithelium. It has no hair and has rich vascularization. This results in little stricture at the junction with the original urethra, no occurrence of urethral stones, and possible postoperative enlargement of the diameter with changes in catheters. This method will allow a patient with severe fibrosis around the urethra to undergo one-stage phallus reconstruction with minimal complications. ( info)

5/548. role of human papillomavirus typing in diagnosis and clinical decision making for a giant verrucous genital lesion.

    A 60-year-old man presented with a 12.0 x 10.0-cm exophytic, verrucous genital plaque. Multiple biopsy specimens were evaluated by standard histologic analysis and polymerase chain reaction assays for human papillomavirus (HPV) deoxyribonucleic acid. All biopsy specimens showed histopathologic changes consistent with giant condyloma of Buschke-Lowenstein (GCBL), were uniformly positive for HPV 6/11, and showed a weaker signal for HPV 16. Published reports suggest that the presence of HPV may be useful in differentiating GCBL from verrucous carcinoma (VC), but absence of "high-risk" HPV types in GCBL cannot exclude focally invasive squamous cell carcinoma. Screening for HPV may be a helpful adjunct in differentiating GCBL from VC, but histopathologic criteria for malignancy should take precedence over HPV typing when determining management. ( info)

6/548. Multidisciplinary treatment, including laser hyperthermia, for extensive regional metastasis of a penile tumor.

    BACKGROUND: There is no reliable treatment for penile tumor with lymph node metastasis. methods: We report on a patient with a penile tumor with extensive regional metastasis that was successfully managed with combined laser hyperthermia, radiation and chemotherapy. RESULTS: The patient has survived more than 7 years without evidence of disease. CONCLUSIONS: Multidisciplinary treatment, including laser hyperthermia, may be useful for the treatment of regional metastasis of penile tumor. ( info)

7/548. erythroplasia of Queyrat treated by topical aminolaevulinic acid photodynamic therapy.

    erythroplasia of Queyrat (EQ) is an intraepithelial carcinoma in situ affecting the mucosal surfaces of the penis, with a significant risk of invasion and metastasis. Treatment is often difficult and is associated with significant recurrence rates. Topical 5-aminolaevulinic acid (ALA) photodynamic therapy (PDT) combines a photosensitizer precursor and visible light to produce a photodynamic effect. It has been used successfully to treat benign, premalignant and malignant skin diseases. We present four patients with EQ who have been treated by topical ALA PDT. Of two patients with limited disease one has achieved a long-term complete response (36 months) and the other developed a recurrence at 18 months after a complete response. Two further patients with more extensive disease achieved a significant improvement, allowing easier treatment by laser vaporization. Although topical ALA PDT offers the advantages of tumour specificity, preservation of function and a good cosmetic result, more extensive EQ appears less responsive to this new therapeutic modality using current treatment parameters.

8/548. A case of classical Kaposi's sarcoma of the penis showing a good response to high-energy pulsed carbon dioxide laser therapy.

    Isolated Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) of the glans penis is rare; only 37 cases are reported in the literature. Treatment of KS consists mostly of old modalities, some old methods in updated improved versions, and some new and experimental therapies. We report a case of isolated classical Kaposi's sarcoma involving multiple sites of the penis in a 54-year-old man who was treated with high-energy pulsed carbon dioxide (CO2) laser therapy, resulting in complete resolution of the lesions and no evidence of recurrence.

9/548. Squamous cell carcinoma of the penis arising on lichen sclerosus et atrophicus.

    Squamous cell carcinoma of the penis arising on lichen sclerosus et atrophicus is rarely reported. A case is described in a 63-year-old man who had been diagnosed of lichen sclerosus et atrophicus 3 years before. The previously reported cases, the association of these diseases in women and men, and the possible pathogenesis are discussed. ( info)

10/548. Primary tuberculosis of the penis.

    We present a case of primary tuberculosis of the inner lining of the prepuce in a 63-year-old man. The condition resembled carcinoma. The diagnosis was based on histopathology and on M. tuberculosis culture. Successful treatment was by a combined medical and surgical approach. The rarity of the case is emphasized. ( info)
