Flashcards in Penile non-imaging and imaging Deck (10)
a) High level of anxiety or antagonism
b) duplex needed for velocities and anatomic conditions
c) sensitivity to injectable medication
ABI calculated for penile arterial evaluation?
poor arterial inflow to LE due to prox obstruction may affect penile arterial flow.
Technique for penile pressures
Obtained with Doppler or PPG
Probe placement: lateral or ventral
Cuff size 2.5 cm x 12.5cm
Normal = > 0.75
marginal = 0.65-0.74
Reduced pressures is highly suggestive of what level disease?
proximal arterial disease
aorta-iliac; internal iliac arteries
In penile imaging, prior to injection of medication what arteries are measured in trans?
cavernous (cavernosal) arteries
Where is medication injected into the penis to induce erection?
lateral aspect, proximal shaft
1-2 minutes post-injection, the same measurements of the cavernous arteries are obtained. When normal should the arteries increase or decrease post-injection?
PSV should increase. 30 cm/sec or higher are normal
The velocity of what veins are measured?
