Case Report: Conversion of a Low-Flow to High-Flow Priapism

Case Report: Conversion of a Low-Flow to High-Flow Priapism Priapism is defined as an erection lasting for more than 4 hours and can be grouped into 3 distinct subtypes: ischemic (low-flow), stuttering and non-ischemic (high-flow). Herein, we present an interesting case of conversion from a low-flow to high-flow priapism after a distal shunting procedure. This is a rare phenomenon that has a paucity of documented cases. Diagnosis requires prompt clinical suspicion and confirmatory testing including penile cavernosal blood gases and Doppler ultrasound. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Current Urology Karger

Abstract

Priapism is defined as an erection lasting for more than 4 hours and can be grouped into 3 distinct subtypes: ischemic (low-flow), stuttering and non-ischemic (high-flow). Herein, we present an interesting case of conversion from a low-flow to high-flow priapism after a distal shunting procedure. This is a rare phenomenon that has a paucity of documented cases. Diagnosis requires prompt clinical suspicion and confirmatory testing including penile cavernosal blood gases and Doppler ultrasound.
