BACKGROUND: There are no clear conclusions as to whether inflammatory proteins and plasma metabolites influence erectile dysfunction (ED). AIM: In this research, we used Mendelian randomization (MR) analysis to discover a causal relationship between inflammatory proteins, plasma metabolites, and ED. METHODS: Raw data with ED, inflammatory proteins, and plasma metabolites were obtained from the MRC IEU OpenGWAS and FinnGen database. After a series of screenings, the remaining single nucleotide polymorphisms were selected as instrumental variables or MR analysis to assess the relationship between genetically predicted inflammatory proteins or plasma metabolites and the pathogenesis of ED...

INTRODUCTION: The rise in the incidence of penile ring incarceration has led to additional cases of ischemic necrosis of the penile skin. Two laterally based scrotal pedicled flaps (LSPFs), noted for their rich blood flow and skin source, resemble penile skin and are the preferred donor sites for repairing such necrosis. AIMS: This study summarizes the outcomes of 2 LSPF grafts for the treatment of penile skin necrosis. METHODS: Data were collected from 5 patients with penile skin necrosis due to ring incarceration who sought treatment at Ankang Central Hospital between 2012 and 2023...
