A man shot through the tip of his PENIS is left with a crooked erection because the urologist warns that similar injuries are being outsourced as a drug-related & # 39; punishment & # 39; related to knee caps
- The 28-year-old from New York went to the hospital after suffering the bizarre injury
- Doctors who treated him did not explain the circumstances behind the shooting
- Doctors at the hospital noticed that there was an entrance and exit hole in the head of his penis
- The team discovered that the bullet was in his left thigh after taking an X-ray
A man who was shot through the tip of his penis was left with a crooked erection in what is probably the first case of his kind ever recorded.
The 28-year-old went to the hospital after the bizarre gunshot wound. Doctors have not explained the circumstances behind the shooting, but a leading urologist has said he has previously seen a similar injury as a drug-related & # 39; punishment & # 39 ;.
Doctors treated the bleeding from the head of his penis and found an entry and exit hole, suggesting that the bullet went straight through.
The New York team also noticed a wound on his thigh, an X-ray of which later revealed that the last bullet point was the small bullet.
Doctors treating the unknown man at the Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx published the story in a medical report.
They said they believe this is the first recorded case of a penile bullet wound on the left distal corpus cavernosum in the medical literature.
Doctors treated the bleeding from the head of his penis and found an entrance and exit hole that suggested that the bullet went straight through. The New York team also noticed a wound on his thigh, of which an X-ray (photo) later revealed that the last resting point of the small bullet was
The corpus cavernosum is spongy tissue that stores blood during an erection. There are two that run along the shaft of the penis.
Dr. Richard Viney, a urologist in Birmingham who did not treat the patient, described the structures as & # 39; frankfurters & # 39 ;.
He said the bullet was in fact a & # 39; main shot & # 39; through the glans and that one would expect the bullet to have missed the corpora & # 39 ;.
Damage to both corpora can affect patients' sexual ability – the man had a & # 39; decreased & # 39; left-sided erection.
The doctors did not explain what this meant – but Dr. Viney said it is likely that the man's penis has deviated to the left & # 39 ;.
Doctors only encountered the injury from an & # 39; artificial erection test & # 39 ;, he pierced his corpora and applied them with saline.
Dr. Viney said: & # 39; The crooked erection was simply because the right corpora was full but the left corpora was not filling due to leakage, causing the deviation to the left. & # 39;
& # 39; The penis is involved in less than one percent of civil trauma & # 39 ;, the doctors wrote in the diary Urology Case Reports.
& # 39; A tertiary hospital in a large metropolitan area mentioned an average incidence of just three gunshot wounds involving the penis each year. & # 39;
Dr. Viney from the Bladder Clinic told MailOnline that he has seen a few similar cases. He said: & # 39; One was a drug-related & # 39; penalty & # 39 ;. Tit-for-tat kind of stuff.
& # 39; The other was another gang member who thought it would be wise to put his loaded gun in his waistband without the safety on. & # 39;
Doctors told how the African-American man had a slight swelling on his dorsal penis – the bottom of his member.
He also bled on both the right and left sides of his glans – the rounded point, or head, of the penis.
It is unclear when he was shot and whether he was immediately taken to the hospital. Nor have doctors said why he was shot in the penis.
Doctors also saw a wound on his left thigh, which showed an X-ray that was the resting place of the bullet that shot him.
Gruesome photos published in the magazine show how doctors probed the two wounds in his glans with a pair of pliers & # 39; to reveal that they were connected.
The doctors wrote: & # 39; The bullet probably traveled from the right side to the left side of the glans before entering the left medial thigh. & # 39;
After repairing the wound, the man had an & # 39; improved left-sided erection without penis curvature. And six weeks later he reported no sexual dysfunction.
DOCTORS CUT A METAL NUT FROM THE & # 39; PROVIDED & # 39; PENIS OF THE MAN AFTER HE TAKES UP THE SQUUEEZDE
A man had to remove a metal nut from his penis after it got stuck when he placed it on his member for sexual pleasure.
The unidentified 34-year-old from Hong Kong went to his nearest A&E department two days after the hex nut was stuck.
Doctors tried to push it off with jelly and give the man pain killers – but it was unsuccessful. They did not reveal how big the nut was.
Instead, the team had to resort to the use of a diamond grinding wheel to cut open the metal and remove it from its & # 39; penis strangulation & # 39; to free.
Doctors in the surgical department of the United Christian Hospital told the unusual story in the journal Urology Case Reports.
Horrible photos showed the doctors who used the disc cutter on his penis. They revealed that he had two & # 39; superficial & # 39; spending cuts.
