Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report the case of a 65-year-old male who presented with an extensive iliofemoral venous thrombosis, which CT demonstrated was secondary to compression of the right common and external iliac veins by a 5cm diameter penile prosthesis reservoir. A similar occurrence has only been reported a handful of times previously, and only in urological journals, never in vascular literature. It is a potentially serious complication of penile prosthesis surgery, the risk of which can be minimised by ready awareness of this post-operative event.
