Priapism is a genitourinary emergency that demands a thorough, time-sensitive evaluation. There are 3 types of priapism: ischemic, nonischemic, and recurrent ischemic priapism; ischemic priapism accounts for 95% of cases. Ischemic priapism must be treated within 4 to 6 hours to minimize morbidity, including impotence. The diagnosis of ischemic priapism relies heavily on the history and physical examination and may be facilitated by penile blood gas analysis and penile ultrasound. This issue reviews current evidence regarding emergency department treatment of ischemic priapism using a stepwise approach that begins with aspiration of cavernosal blood, cold saline irrigation, and penile injection with sympathomimetic agents...

A 60-year-old male presented to an emergency department (ED) with priapism following a sore throat illness. He did not have typical findings of sepsis. The patient then developed severe headache, mental status changes, and hypertension, then suffered a cardiopulmonary arrest. Autopsy showed group A streptococcal (GAS) sepsis, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), and a septic thrombosis to the penile vein. This is the first known case of priapism being the presenting symptom of DIC.

Background The up-regulation of P-selectin in endothelial cells and platelets contributes to the cell-cell interactions that are involved in the pathogenesis of vaso-occlusion and sickle cell-related pain crises. The safety and efficacy of crizanlizumab, an antibody against the adhesion molecule P-selectin, were evaluated in patients with sickle cell disease. Methods In this double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, phase 2 trial, we assigned patients to receive low-dose crizanlizumab (2.5 mg per kilogram of body weight), high-dose crizanlizumab (5...

INTRODUCTION: Penile prosthesis (PP) implantation in men with severe corporal fibrosis presents a significant surgical challenge. For the past 7 years, we have used a novel, preoperative protocol of daily vacuum therapy (VT) using a vacuum erection device for at least 3 months before PP placement for men with severe corporal fibrosis from PP infection or ischemic priapism. AIM: To evaluate this standardized preoperative regimen. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all patients who underwent three-piece PP placement at our institution from 2008 through 2015...

BACKGROUND: Sickle cell disease patients display priapism that may progress to erectile dysfunction. However, little is known about the pathophysiological alterations of corpus cavernosum in sickle cell disease. OBJECTIVE: Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the functional and molecular alterations of sympathetic machinery and nitric oxide-cyclic guanosine monophosphate signaling pathway in Townes transgenic sickle cell disease mice. METHODS: Concentration-response curves to contractile (phenylephrine) and relaxant agents (acetylcholine and sodium nitroprusside) were obtained in corpus cavernosum strips from sickle and C57BL/6 (control) mice...

We report a case of nonischemic priapism following brachytherapy. A 63-year-old man presented 22 days after brachytherapy for prostate cancer. He suffered painless sustained incomplete erection for a few days. The patient was diagnosed with nonischemic priapism by cavernosal blood gas analysis. Right internal pudendal arteriography showed blood pooling in the cavernosum caused by arteriovenous fistula. Selective arterial embolization with gelatin sponge particles was performed and detumescence achieved. To our knowledge,this is the first case of high flow priapism caused by brachytherapy for prostate cancer...

AIMS AND BACKGROUND: Mediators of adhesion become a potential new target for pharmacological therapy to struggle the complications of sickle cell disease (SCD). Several mechanisms for increased adherence have been postulated and the well-studied are CD36 and VLA4 which encoded by ITGA4. Herein, we sought to determine whether one polymorphism of CD36 namely: rs1984112 and three exons of ITGA4 (4, 5, and 6) are implicated in hemolytic status and clinical events among SCD Tunisian patients...

Sathyaseelan Subramaniam, Jennifer H Chao
Sickle cell disease is a chronic hematologic disease with a variety of acute, and often recurring, complications. Vaso-occlusive crisis, a unique but common presentation in sickle cell disease, can be challenging to manage. Acute chest syndrome is the leading cause of death in patients with sickle cell disease, occurring in more than half of patients who are hospitalized with a vaso-occlusive crisis. Uncommon diagnoses in children, such as stroke, priapism, and transient red cell aplasia, occur more frequently in patients with sickle cell disease and necessitate a degree of familiarity with the disease process and its management...

Rubber band ligation is one of the most important, cost-effective and commonly used treatments for internal hemorrhoids. Different technical approaches were developed mainly to improve efficacy and safety. The technique can be employed using an endoscope with forward-view or retroflexion or without an endoscope, using a suction elastic band ligator or a forceps ligator. Single or multiple ligations can be performed in a single session. Local anaesthetic after ligation can also be used to reduce the post-procedure pain...

Priapism is a rare clinical condition characterized by a persistent erection unrelated to sexual excitement. Often the etiology is idiopathic. Three cases of priapism in glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency patients have been described in literature. We present the case of a 39-year-old man with glucose- 6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, who reached out to our department for the arising of a non-ischemic priapism without arteriolacunar fistula. We suggest that the glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency could be an underestimated risk factor for priapism...

Priapism is a rare but severe urological emergency of erection of penis in the absence of physical and psychological sexual stimulation. Priapism is often idiopathic and is commonly associated with medications and underlying medical or traumatic causes. In this report, we present a case of a 70-year-old White Caucasian man who developed priapism after the administration of ondansetron, which is a selective serotonin type-3 (5-HT3) receptor antagonist. This case is unique, because, to date, there are only two presented cases in literature...

We present the first reported case of refractory pediatric priapism treated by intracavernosal tunneling T shunt. A 12 year-old male, with sickle cell disease, presented with 72 hrs of painful erection. The patient failed conservative measures including aspiration, injection of phenylephrine, as well as distal shunt procedure. A T-T shunt was performed, as previously described in the adult literature. There was immediate resolution of the erection with no complications. At 1 year follow-up, he reports no subsequent episodes of priapism and normal erections...

INTRODUCTION: Ischemic priapism is an uncommon urologic emergency characterized by a compartment syndrome-like ischemic insult to the corpora cavernosa of the penis. The goal of treatment in ischemic priapism is rapid detumescence to prevent long-term erectile dysfunction. Non-surgical treatment options include aspiration, irrigation, and intracavernous injections of sympathomimetic agents. At our institution, phenylephrine is used in the treatment of ischemic priapism at concentrations and doses that are higher than those recommended in established guidelines...

Deep dorsal penile vein thrombosis (DDPVT)is a rare and little known urologic emergency. It requires an early etiological and symptomatic approach to preserve erectile function and prevent recurrences. This study reports a case of dorsal penile vein thrombosis revealed by spontaneous priapism that didn't resolve adequately and confirmed by penile Doppler ultrasound. After management of priapism and DDPVT, the etiological investigation revealed Behcet's disease whose diagnosis was based on the association of a major criteria, such as oral aphthous ulcers with 3 minor criteria such as: genital aphthous ulcers, ocular involvement, and a positive skin pathergy test within 24h...

Kyung Rae Kim
Priapism is prolonged erection that persists beyond or is unrelated to sexual stimulation. There are two main types of priapism: high flow and low flow. The treatment of priapism will differ depending on the diagnosis of these two different types. In particular, interventional radiology plays a key role in treating patients with high-flow priapism. This article will review the diagnosis and treatment of the high-flow priapism.
