Introduction This paper reports treatment of a 76-hour low-flow priapism with a shunting procedure that was first described by Barry in 1976. We were able to observe the preservation of erectile function despite the long period of ischemia. A review of the literature shows that there are few reports of erectile function recovery after a priapism of similar duration. Materials and methods A 42-year-old patient presented with a 76-hour priapism, probably caused by consumption of alcohol and…

Effectiveness of the caverno‐dorsal vein shunt (Barry shunt) on prolonged ischaemic priapism and its effect on the post‐operative long‐term erectile function
In this study, caverno‐dorsal vein shunt procedure is shown to be effective in providing detumescence and maintaining potency in cases with ischaemic priapism and can be considered as the first treatment of choice for refractory low‐flow priAPism.


Efficacy of Shunt Surgert for Refractory Low Flow Priapism: A Report on the Incidence of Failed Detumescence and Erectile Dysfunction
The efficacy of various shunts in terms of achieving detumescence was reviewed and the rate of erectile dysfunction at long-term followup was clarified and it was clarified that the number of patients with refractory low flow priapism requiring a surgical shunt is high.
Efficacy of shunt surgery for refractory low flow priapism: a report on the incidence of failed detumescence and erectile dysfunction.
In contrast to previously reported success rates, approximately 50% of patients required reoperation for failed detumescence following a cavernosa-to-spongiosum shunt, whereas reoperation was uncommonly required following an Al-Ghorab or Quackels shunt.
Persistent priapism and histological modifications of the erectile tissue. Two case reports.
Prolonged veno-occlusive priapism is associated with a high risk of fibrosis of the corpora and impotence. We present 2 cases of prolonged low-flow priapism who came under our observation more then

Grayhack shunt is a safe surgical procedure without any major complications and with lower ED rate and might be considered as treatment of choice for refractory low flow priapism.
[Low flow priapism. Treatment by sapheno-cavernous shunt].
The performance of a sapheno-cavernous shunt is an effective treatment for the low flow priapism resistant to usual medical-surgical treatment.
The immediate insertion of a penile prosthesis for acute ischaemic priapism.
Preservation of potency after treatment for priapism.
The prognosis was poorest when heparin therapy or a combination of alcohol drinking and psychopharmaceuticals was the aetiological factor behind priapism.
Corporal "snake" maneuver: corporoglanular shunt surgical modification for ischemic priapism.
The modified Al-Ghorab corporoglanular shunt surgery appears to offer an advantageous management approach to resolve ischemic priapism, particularly for cases refractory to first-line management.
Stuttering priapism – a review of the therapeutic options
This work has shown that immediate intervention is required for low‐flow cases as the development of ischaemia ultimately leads to long‐term erectile dysfunction and stuttering or recurrent priapism is less well understood.
