Abstract

Hypervascularity of the penis is a complication that has been described after deep dorsal vein arterialization. We present a patient with hypervascularity of the penis which was diagnosed with cutaneous temperature measurements of the penis. Our patient underwent both pre- and post-operative cutaneous temperature measurements taken at seven locations along the shaft and glans of the penis with the Physitemp BTE-2A Thermal Sensitivity Tester. After deep dorsal vein arterialization our patient's cutaneous temperature at the glans increased 4.2°C. After ligation of the distal deep dorsal vein for hypervascularity, the cutaneous temperature at the glans decreased 1.3°C. We present a novel technique using cutaneous tempewrature measurements which may be used as a test for the efficacy of arterial revascularization and its potential complications.
