Abstract

Priapism is a less common disease in urology. Non-ischemic priapism does not require emergency management and can be treated conservatively. The deficiency of this treatment is that some of these patients may experience Erectile Dysfunction (ED). In this case, ED occurred 2 months after conservative treatment of priapism, and an arteriovenous fistula in the right cavernous of the penis was found by Color Doppler Ultrasound (CDU). Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) was performed to determine the location of the fistula, and microcoils were placed to block the fistula for treatment. Erectile function was restored satisfactorily after therapeutic embolization. When reviewing 1 year after surgery, the IIEF-5 score was 19 and the patient had satisfactory erections. Selective arterial embolization is still an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction secondary to priapism.
