  3. Rectal seepage




    Investigation of the pathophysiology of fecal seepage.Rao SS, Ozturk R, Stessman M.
    Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology/Hepatology, University of Iowa, Carver College of Medicine, Iowa City, Iowa, USA.

    BACKGROUND AND AIM: Unintentional seepage of stool without awareness is common but its pathophysiology is poorly understood. Our aim was to examine the underlying mechanism(s) for fecal seepage. METHODS: We evaluated prospectively 25 patients with fecal seepage, by performing anorectal manometry, balloon expulsion, saline infusion, pudendal nerve latency tests, and symptom assessments and compared their data with 26 fecal incontinence patients and 43 healthy controls. RESULTS: Predisposing factors for fecal seepage were back injury (7), obstetric injury (6), hemorrhoidectomy (3), pelvic radiotherapy (1), and unknown (8). In the seepage group, the resting and squeeze sphincter pressures were lower (p < 0.02) than healthy controls, but higher (p < 0.002) than incontinent group. During straining, the intrarectal pressure and defecation index were lower (p < 0.05) in the seepage group compared to controls; 72% showed dyssynergia and balloon expulsion time was prolonged (p < 0.01). Threshold for first rectal sensation was impaired (p < 0.002) in the seepage group compared to controls and incontinent group. The seepage group retained more (p < 0.001) saline than the incontinent group but pudendal nerve latency time was impaired (p < 0.05) in both patient groups compared to controls. CONCLUSIONS: Anal sphincter function and rectal reservoir capacity were relatively well preserved but most patients with seepage demonstrated dyssynergia with impaired rectal sensation and impaired balloon expulsion. Thus, incomplete evacuation of stool may play a significant role in the pathogenesis of seepage.

    Is stapled hemorrhoidopexy safe for the male homosexual patient? Report of a case.Kekez T, Bulic K, Smudj D, Majerovic M.
    University Hospital Zagreb, Kispaticeva 12, Zagreb, Croatia.

    Stapled hemorrhoidopexy is becoming a widely accepted surgical treatment for third- and fourth-degree hemorrhoids because it is associated with much less postoperative pain than open hemorrhoidectomy. After the procedure, a circular line of staples is left in the anal canal; therefore, there is a risk of penile injury or condom damage during anal intercourse, which increases the risk of exposure to sexually transmitted diseases. We report the case of a male homosexual patient who engaged in anal intercourse after recovering from a stapled hemorrhoidopexy, resulting in condom damage. We did not consider this possibility and neglected to discuss the issue with the patient. With an estimated 2.5% of the general population being exclusive, male homosexuals, it is necessary to inform such patients to refrain from anal intercourse after hemorrhoidopexy, although there are no reports stating how long this restraint should last.

    1st Department of Pediatrics, University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

    Background: Most true hermaphrodite patients - characterized by the presence of both ovarian and testicular tis- sue - demonstrate ambiguous genitalia and are diagnosed at birth, most commonly bearing a 46,XX karyotype. Patient and Methods: We report on a 13-year-old boy presenting with left scrotal hemorrhage. He had a left inguinal hernia, a palpable testis in the right, normal male external genitalia and significant gynecomastia. During operation, the left gonad and adjacent tissue were removed for histological examination, which revealed the presence of a normal ovary, rich in follicles and a ruptured corpus luteum, suggestive of spontaneous ovulation, with a normal ipsilateral adnexa and semi-uterus. Biopsy of the right gonad revealed a dysgenetic testicle. Endocrinological assessment postoperatively depicted high FSH, pubertal testosterone and low estradiol levels. Cytogenetic analysis in peripheral blood lymphocytes and FISH of the right gonad revealed a 46,XX (70-60%)/47,XXY (30-40%) karyotype, respectively, while molecular analysis verified the presence of SRY and azoospermia factor genes. Conclusion: The importance of full histological, cytogenetic and molecular investigation and of interdisciplinary approach in every single patient with sex differentiation disorders is highlighted by this rare case of spontaneous ovulation in a true hermaphrodite with normal male external genitalia and Klinefelter mosaicism.

    Semen quality of fertile US males in relation to their mothers' beef consumption during pregnancy.

    Swan SH, Liu F, Overstreet JW, Brazil C, Skakkebaek NE.
    Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, School of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Rochester, 601 Elmwood Avenue, Rochester, NY 14624, USA.

    BACKGROUND To look at possible long-term risks from anabolic steroids and other xenobiotics in beef, we examined mens' semen quality in relation to their mother's self-reported beef consumption during pregnancy. METHODS The study was carried out in five US cities between 1999 and 2005. We used regression analyses to examine semen parameters in 387 partners of pregnant women in relation to the amount of beef their mothers reported eating while pregnant. Mothers' beef consumption was also analysed in relation to the son's history of previous subfertility. RESULTS Sperm concentration was inversely related to mothers' beef meals per week (P = 0.041). In sons of 'high beef consumers' (>7 beef meals/week), sperm concentration was 24.3% lower (P = 0.014) and the proportion of men with sperm concentration below 20 x 10(6)/ml was three times higher (17.7 versus 5.7%, P = 0.002) than in men whose mothers ate less beef. A history of previous subfertility was also more frequent among sons of 'high beef consumers' (P = 0.015). Sperm concentration was not significantly related to mother's consumption of other meat or to the man's consumption of any meat. CONCLUSIONS These data suggest that maternal beef consumption, and possibly xenobiotics in beef, may alter a man's testicular development in utero and adversely affect his reproductive capacity.

  11. Exploring the possible link between childhood and adolescent bestiality and interpersonal violence.


    University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, 37403, USA. [email protected]

    Bestiality is a serious although less frequently occurring form of animal cruelty that may be linked to subsequent aggression against humans. This investigation examines whether a perpetrator's race, childhood residence, education, commission of a personal crime, and the number of personal crimes committed affects acts of bestiality committed during childhood or adolescence among a sample of incarcerated males. The results show that respondents with less education and those who had been convicted of committing crimes against people on one or more occasions were more likely to have had sex with animals during their childhood or adolescence than other respondents in the sample. These findings lend some support to the sexually polymorphous theory that among these perpetrators sex and aggression have become mutually inclusive and that bestiality as a form of animal cruelty may be linked with interpersonal human violence.

  14. Does Prayer Influence the Success of in Vitro Fertilization–Embryo Transfer?

    Kwang Y. Cha, M.D., Daniel P. Wirth, J.D., M.S., and Rogerio A. Lobo, M.D.

    OBJECTIVE: To assess the potential effect of intercessory prayer (IP) on pregnancy rates in women being treated with in vitro fertilization–embryo transfer (IVF-ET).
    STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, double-blind, randomized clinical trial in which patients and providers were not informed about the intervention. Statisticians and investigators were masked until all the data had been collected and clinical outcomes were known. The setting was an IVF-ET program at Cha Hospital, Seoul, Korea. IP was carried out by prayer groups in the United States, Canada and Australia. The investigators were at a tertiary medical center in the United States. The patients were 219 women aged 26–46 years who were consecutively treated with IVF-ET over a four-month period. Randomization was performed after stratification of variables in two groups: distant IP vs. no IP. The clinical pregnancy rates in the two groups were the main outcome measure.
    RESULTS: After clinical pregnancies were known, the data were unmasked to assess the effects of IP after assessment of multiple comparisons in a log-linear model. The IP group had a higher pregnancy rate as compared to the no-IP rate (50% vs. 26%, P=.0013). The IP group showed a higher implantation rate (16.3% vs. 8%, P=.0005). Observed effects were independent of clinical or laboratory providers and clinical variables.
    CONCLUSION: A statistically significant difference was observed for the effect of IP on the outcome of IVF-ET, though the data should be interpreted as preliminary. (J Reprod Med 2001;46:781–787)

    Twenty two patients with gender dysphoria underwent neo-phalloplasties using a novel technique. Latissimus dorsi musculocutaneus re-innervated free flap was used to allow voluntary rigidity of the neo-penis. From the first 22 patients, 18 have obtained motoric function of reconstructed penis; the "paradox erection" was obtained. 14 patients came for examination after a follow-up period of mean 26.4 months. We evaluated the motility and shape changes of neo-phallus measuring its different size and dimension during relax and muscle contraction. The range of neo-phallus length in relaxed position was between 7 and 17 cm (mean 12.2 cm), its circumference in the same position had a range between 13 and 20 cm (mean 13.7 cm). All patients were able to contract the muscle with an average length reduction of 3.08 cm and an average circumference enlargement of 4 cm. In this study, the dimensions and motility were quantified demonstrating the neo-phallus function and size changes during sexual intercourse.

  17. Transient genital abnormalities in striped hyenas (Hyaena hyaena).

    Department of Ecology, Montana State University, Bozeman, MT 59717, USA.

    The highly masculinized genitalia of female spotted hyenas Crocuta crocuta is unique among mammals: Crocuta have no external vagina so urination, penile intromission and parturition take place through the clitoris, which mimics a fully erectile male penis. Among hyenids, virilization of external female genitalia has previously been observed only in Crocuta, so functional explanations of masculinization have focused on aspects of social ecology unique to the species. Here we first show that the striped hyena Hyaena hyaena exhibits both unusual similarity in male and female androgen concentrations and transient genital anomalies characterized by a convergence in genital appearance among young males and females. We then evaluate hypotheses regarding the evolution of genital masculinization in the Hyaenidae and other taxa. Hyaena are behaviorally solitary, so discovery of unusual genital development patterns in this species does not support any current evolutionary models for masculinization in Crocuta, which all rely on the trait originating within a highly social species. Some hypotheses can be modified so that masculinization in Crocuta represents an extreme elaboration of a preexisting trait, shared as a homology with Hyaena

  18. A genital hair tourniquet in a 9-year-old girl.

    * Alverson B.

    Department of Pediatrics, Brown University, Providence, RI 02903, USA. [email protected]

    The hair tourniquet is a well-described phenomenon. Typically, a hair or filament becomes tightly wrapped around an appendage, thereby causing swelling, pain, and, in extreme cases, necrosis. Affected areas include fingers, toes, and the genitalia. A case of a 9-year-old girl with a clitoral hair tourniquet is described, and a review of the literature of genital tourniquets in females is presented, with a discussion about potential etiology.The hair-thread tourniquet syndrome is a disease in which a hair or filament becomes wrapped around an end-perfusion appendage, thereby limiting adequate venous and lymphatic drainage of that tissue. This results in hyperemia, swelling and pain. If uncorrected, edema and interstitial pressures may increase to prevent adequate vascular supply, and the affected area can progress to necrosis. We are classically taught that this syndrome primarily affects the fingers, toes, and infantile penis and is an important consideration in the differential diagnosis of the colicky infant. The author presents a case of a prepubescent girl with a genital hair tourniquet.

  20. Can chlamydial conjunctivitis result from direct ejaculation into the eye?

    * Rackstraw S,

    Diagnostic Clinic, Moorfields Eye Hospital, City Road, London EC1V 2PD, UK. [email protected]

    The majority of cases of chlamydial conjunctivitis are thought to result from autoinoculation by the patient of infected genital secretions from themselves or their sexual partners. We noted that some patients had developed symptoms following direct ejaculation into the affected eye. We describe four cases of chlamydial conjunctivitis following ejaculation of semen directly into the eye, which have not been previously described. In only one case was chlamydia detected in the genital tract. In three cases, there was no evidence of genital chlamydial infection; the sources of the eye infection being either from infected genital material of their sexual partners transferred by hands to the eyes, or more likely from direct ejaculate inoculation. It is likely that this mode of transmission is underestimated as a history of ejaculation into the conjunctiva is not normally asked for.

  22. High-Risk Behaviors in Women Who Use Crack: Knowledge of HIV Serostatus and Risk Behavior.Brewer TH, Zhao W, Metsch LR, Coltes A, Zenilman J.
    From the Department of Medicine (T.H.B.) and Department of Public Health and Epidemiology (W.Z., L.R.M., A.C.), University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL; and Department of Medicine, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine (J.Z.), Baltimore, MD.

    PURPOSE: To determine whether crack cocaine-using women who are aware of their HIV serostatus have made modifications in risk behaviors, we compared known HIV-positive (HIV+) and HIV-negative (HIV-) users with respect to sexual risk behaviors, prevalence of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and vaginitis, and correlates of unprotected sex. METHODS: We used a cross-sectional design with street outreach, recruitment, and interviews of sexually active crack cocaine using women. Women received testing for HIV, STIs, and vaginitis. RESULTS: Sixty-one HIV+ and 117 HIV- women were enrolled. HIV+ women were significantly more likely to be African-American. There were no significant differences in drug use, types of sexual partners, number of paying partners, attitudes regarding condoms, or STI diagnoses. HIV+ women were less likely to engage in unprotected sex compared with HIV- women (56% vs. 75%, adjusted odds ratio [AOR], 0.36; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.13-0.99). Among HIV+ women, unprotected sex was negatively associated with stronger beliefs regarding the protective value of condoms (AOR, 0.07; 95% CI, 0.01-0.67) and concurrent injection-drug use (AOR, 0.19; 95% CI, 0.04-0.99). CONCLUSIONS: Although the majority of crack using HIV+ crack using women in this sample continued to engage in high-risk sexual activities, they were less likely to do so than HIV- women. Interventions targeting this population are needed.

  23. Dog bites to the male genitalia: characteristics, management and comparison with human bites.

    Wolf JS Jr, Turzan C, Cattolica EV, McAninch JW.
    Department of Urology, University of California School of Medicine, San Francisco 94143-0738.

    Dog bites to the external male genitalia occur infrequently. We present 4 new cases and review 4 others described previously. Victims tend to seek medical care quickly. Thus, morbidity is directly related to the severity of the initial wound and delayed infectious complications appear to be minimal. Guidelines for management include irrigation, debridement as necessary, empiric antibiotics, consideration of tetanus and rabies immunization, and primary wound closure or surgical reconstruction. The differences between dog bites and human bites to the genitalia--primarily interval to presentation and subsequent likelihood of infection--are summarized. Measures to prevent dog bites are discussed.

  25. The Hermaphrodite's Dilemma.Leonard JL.
    Department of Zoology, University of Oklahoma, Norman 73019.

    Given sexual conflict, mating encounters between simultaneous hermaphrodites will conform to a new, conditional, non-zero sum game of strategy, the Hermaphrodite's Dilemma; special cases of which include Prisoner's Dilemma and Game of Chicken. The model predicts that hermaphrodite mating systems will be based on reciprocation with cheating in a preferred sexual role. This model suggests that study of hermaphrodite mating systems will provide direct evidence for the existence of sexual conflict and suggests that sexual conflict may act to stabilize hermaphroditism through such mating systems.

  26. Penile size and the 'small penis syndrome'Wylie KR, Eardley I.
    Urology, Royal Hallemshire Hospital, Sheffield, UK.

    The male is often troubled by concerns that his penis is not large enough to satisfy his partner or himself. He is ashamed to have others view his penis, especially in the flaccid state. Such concerns might be unfounded in reality and might be a presentation of social anxiety or some other clinical problem, such as erectile dysfunction. Concern over the size of the penis, when such concern becomes excessive, might present as the 'small penis syndrome', an obsessive rumination with compulsive checking rituals, body dysmorphic disorder, or as part of a psychosis. However, it is often a worry that can be described as within the normal experience of many men. Various potential causal factors are considered. A thorough assessment, normalizing the worry and then exploring the treatment options in detail with the man, is essential to allow the matter to be consolidated satisfactorily within the male ego.
