PMID:  22458487     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
OBJECTIVES: •  To review the literature regarding ischaemic, non-ischaemic and stuttering priapism •  To provide management recommendations
PATIENTS AND METHODS: •  A Medline search was carried out to identify all relevant papers with management guidelines for priapism.
RESULTS: •  Ischaemic priapism represents a compartment syndrome of the penis and urgent intervention is required to decrease the risk of erectile dysfunction. •  Non-ischaemic priapism is not a medical emergency; however, it can result in erectile dysfunction. •  The treatment objective for stuttering priapism is to reduce future episodes with systemic treatments, whilst treating each ischaemic episode as an emergency.
CONCLUSIONS: •  Priapism is a complex condition that requires expert care to prevent complications and irreversible erectile dysfunction.
