Abstract

ABSTRACT

Of 239 patients with erectile dysfunction (aged 36 to 70 years) who were evaluated with dynamic infusion cavernosometry-cavernosography, 32 (13.4%) developed priapism after the procedure and were successfully managed with immediate intracorporal injection of phenylephrine. No single risk factor for the development of priapism was identified in this group. Early pharmacologic intervention for priapism induced by dynamic infusion cavernosometry-cavernosography is a simple, safe, and time-saving measure to achieve detumescence and prevent potential sequelae such as corporal ischemia or fibrosis.
