preputial anastomosis
a treatment for preputial prolapse in pigs involving resection of the prolapsed portion and joining of the skin and mucosal surfaces at the margin of the prolapsed tissue.
preputial annulus
the fibrous ring contained in the skin around the external orifice of the prepuce.
preputial calculus
top-shaped mass; may act as valve and obstruct preputial orifice.
preputial diverticulitis
inflammation of the preputial diverticulum in the pig.
preputial diverticulum
an evagination of the prepuce such as of the dorsal wall of the preputial cavity of the boar just inside the external preputial orifice. Called also preputial sac.
preputial eversion
because of injury or infection the skin lining the preputial cavity becomes swollen and edematous and prolapses through the preputial orifice where it is likely to undergo more injury. Commonest in cattle and among them in polled animals which are likely to have a higher incidence of weak preputial muscles and therefore the most dependent pizzles. Called also preputial prolapse.

preputial prolapse
seen in pigs and may be treated by replacement and use of a purse-string suture, or in more severe cases by preputial anastomosis (above).

a surgical method of treating prepucial prolapse in bulls, using a rigid plastic ring as a framework for ligation.

preputial stenosis
preputial varicosities
distended veins that often cause local distention of the prepuce in stallions but do not appear to interfere with breeding.

Conservative treatment is successful at the initial stages when necrosis and permanent penile damage has not occurred and penile circulation can be restored to normal by replacing the penis in the preputial cavity and returning the prepuce to its normal configuration [4].
After 30 days, 10 male mice from the treated and 10 from the control groups were sacrificed by cervical dislocation under light ether anesthesia, and the weights of the body, paired testes, preputial glands and seminal vesicles (stripped of fluid) were measured.
The age of preputial separation, a marker for onset of puberty in males, was significantly increased in the middle- and high-dose groups.
Pregnant rats produced male offspring with decreased prostatic and seminal vesicular weights, delayed preputial separation and transient nipple development when given finasteride at > or equal to 30 ug/kg/day (> or equal to 3/10 of the recommended human dose) and decreased anogenital distance when given finasteride at > or equal to 3 ug/kg/day (> or equal to 3/100 of the recommended human dose).
Phallobase, inguinal lymph nodes and scrotum are often involved, which may affect distal blood flow of the penis and lead to preputial edema, usually without systemic symptoms.
Score 0 (no effect): The genital tubercle was normal, with the urethral opening at the tip of the genital tubercle and the preputial skin intact.
2008a, 2008b), with anticipated dose-related effects on acquisition of puberty [accelerated vaginal patency (VP), delayed preputial separation] and AGD (shortened in males); these doses also affected weights of ovaries, uterus, cervix, and vagina, but not prostate and nonmonotonic dose--response curves for any parameter.
These adverse effects include decreased weights in accessory sex organs, delayed preputial separation, decreased testicular sperm production, and decreased epididymal sperm storage.
Some of our findings were in accordance with previous studies: the penis immaturity we observed on PND25 in the G10 group is similar to the delayed preputial separation after gestational and lactational exposure to 5 mg/kg genistein in the diet in Long-Evans rats (Wisniewski et al.
The primary modifications were a) exclusion of dorsolateral prostate weights; and b) specification of castration on or after postnatal day (PND) 42, because some animals castrated before PND42 in phase 1 did not undergo preputial separation, compromising glans penis (GP) dissection.
