[Treatment using percutaneous arterial embolization of post-traumatic priapism in children].

Abstract

High flow rate priapism was diagnosed in a 14-year-old adolescent 5 days after a fall onto the perineum. Highly selective embolization of the 2 internal pudendal arteries was performed with gelatin (SPONGEL). Rapid resolution of the priapism as well as return of normal erection were observed within 48 hours. Doppler ultrasound revealed a high flow rate and identified the side of the traumatized artery. Endovascular embolization allows effective treatment of traumatic arteriocavernous fistula.
