Prostatic infarction refers to necrosis of the prostate gland tissue from a lack of blood supply.
Histology slices on biopsy specimens may show reactive atypia 3.
- prostatic artery embolization
- presumed pelvic ischemia after
- cross-clamping of the aorta for coronary or aortic surgery 4
- hypotensive myocardial infarction
- septic shock
PSA level may be elevated 2.
Reported signal characteristics in the setting of post prostatic artery embolization include 1:
- T1: hyperintense
- T2: hypointense
