Abstract (Part 1)

During chronic episodes of hypoxic conditions selenium may act as a master upregulator of antioxidant activity in penile tissues, as improved selenium bioavailability may decreases stress-mediated sympathetic activity (NO-dependent) and improve oxygenation levels of penile tissues: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5503924/

This report describe a conceptual case of hypoxia-mediated cellular damage in the spermatic cord area of the scrotum caused by repeated hypoxic exposures:

First, the objective of this draft report is to collect relevant evidences on the pathological effects of chronic/repeated hypoxia exposure on the physiology of the penis, testicles, and scrotum. 

Secondly, the role of low-oxygen levels in penile microvascular tissues would be interesting topic to discuss here, considering the importance of tissue oxygenation and nitric oxide in the etiology of erectile dysfunction: https://academic.oup.com/cardiovascres/article/43/3/658/321047
