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).

preputial varicosities

Knowing the blood supply of the prepuce is essential, so that preservation of the preputial vascularisation is not merely fortuitous.
50,51) A systematic review comparing TIP to onlay preputial flaps for proximal hypospadias without significant VC showed no significant difference in urethroplasty complication rates.
The surgical approach we described, not an original one, mainly included three principles: Removing the preputial stenosis ring, widely reducing the inner prepuce, and anchoring the penile foreskin, which were somewhat similar with other techniques.
The easiest way to deal with preputial adhesions is to manually break them in the office.
Disturbingly, given the neonatal prepuce is normally fused to the glans, requiring its forcible separation during circumcision (32,64,65), one author reported that 25% of older boys given topical EMLA for release of preputial adhesions could not tolerate even the pain of this (66), reinforcing concerns that EMLA cream provides insufficient anaesthesia for circumcision proper.
During the first few years of life, the accumulation and release of smegma, as well as nocturnal erections, serve to physiologically lyse the preputial adhesions and allow the foreskin to retract.
Congenital causes include narrowing of the preputial orifice and abnormal shortening of prepuce while trauma, infection, priapism, penile hematoma, neoplasia, foreign bodies, masturbation and excessive sexual activity are amongst the acquired causes.
Treatment of paraphimosis includes supporting the extended penis, manually replacing the penis in the preputial cavity, use of emollients to cover and protect the fragile exposed tissues, hydrotherapy, physiotherapy of the penis, use of broad spectrum antibiotics, and surgical interventions such as preputiotomy, phallopexy, posthetomy, and phallectomy (Lisa and Soon, 2008).
Urethroplasty can be performed using penile or preputial skin or a free skin graft, buccal or bladder mucosa.
There are 3 foreskin types: in the short foreskin, the preputial orifice is located behind the glans corona; in the medium foreskin, the orifice is between the corona and the meatal orifice; in the long foreskin, the entire glans is covered and the meatus is not identified without retracting the foreskin.
Phimosis is a condition defined by the inability of the penis to be extruded beyond the preputial orifice due to either the absence of an opening or an abnormally small orifice.
Clinical signs can include dysuria, hematuria, constipation, gait abnormalities such as moving with apparent stiffness in hind limbs, abdominal pain, fever, preputial discharge, abdominal pain, and vomiting.
