Veno-Occlusive Priapism in COVID-19 Disease.

Urol Int 2021 Jun 9:1-4. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

Foundation Hospital San Carlos, Bogota, Colombia.

Infection by COVID-19, being a respiratory disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, can predispose to arterial and venous thrombotic disease, in response to excessive inflammation, platelet activation, endothelial dysfunction, and venous stasis. During the COVID-19 pandemic period, the technological and resource availability for the care of these patients with thrombotic disease is critical, marking a factor of morbidity and poor prognosis in these cases. We describe a case of priapism in a patient with COVID-19, during the course of systemic inflammatory response syndrome and respiratory distress syndrome with a procoagulant state, seeking to relate the pathophysiological factors of ischemic priapism in patients with infection with SARS-Cov-2.

Endovascular Interventional Radiology of the Urogenital Tract.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2021 Mar 17;57(3). Epub 2021 Mar 17.

Department of Radiology, University of Trieste, ASUGI, Ospedale di Cattinara, 34149 Trieste, Italy.

Interventional radiology of the male urogenital system includes percutaneous and endovascular procedures, and these last consist mostly of transcatheter arterial embolizations. At the kidney level, arterial embolizations are performed mainly for palliative treatment of parenchymal tumors, for renal traumas and, less frequently, for arteriovenous fistulas and renal aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms. These latter may often require emergency intervention as they can cause renal or peri-renal hematomas or significant hematuria. Read More

Treatment-resistant priapism associated with long-term low-molecular-weight heparin.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Apr 1;14(4). Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Cardiology, Galway Clinic, Galway, Ireland.

This case report summarises the case of a 56-year-old man with low-flow, ischaemic priapism requiring urgent insertion of a penile prosthesis following prophylactic anticoagulation with tinzaparin. Low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) has been proposed as a cause of ischaemic priapism, although reported cases of this are rare. This particular side effect of tinzaparin has been reported once in a case report in 2018, and there are scant other reports of LMWH-induced priapism. Read More

Priapism following a juvenile Russell's viper bite: An unusual case report.

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2021 Mar 25;15(3):e0009242. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

School of Pharmacy, University of Reading, Reading, United Kingdom.

Following a bite from a juvenile Russell's viper (Daboia russelii), a priapism (painful erection) developed rapidly in a 16-year-old male and only subsided after administration of antivenom 3 hours later. Potential mechanisms for this snakebite-induced priapism are unclear but likely due to venom toxins causing nitric oxide (NO) release and subsequent vasodilation of endothelium in the corpus cavernosum, although the possible involvement of other mechanisms cannot be ruled out. We strongly believe that this unusual case report may lead to further scientific research in order to improve the clinical understanding of the pathophysiology of envenomation due to Russell's viper bites.

A rare case of post-traumatic high-flow priapism requiring endovascular salvage with bilateral superselective microcoil embolization.

J Surg Case Rep 2021 Mar 8;2021(3):rjab077. Epub 2021 Mar 8.

Intensive Care Unit, Gold Coast University Hospital, Southport 4215, Australia.

Post-traumatic high-flow priapism is a rare occurrence, with potentially debilitating long-term erectile dysfunction if left unaddressed. Even rarer, however, is for the priapism symptoms to be caused by a single cavernosal arterial pseudoaneurysm, with feeding vessels from the distal branched vessels of 'both' the left and right internal pudendal arteries. To the best of our knowledge, we present the first documented case of endovascular salvage utilizing superselective microcoil embolization in the treatment of high-flow priapism caused by a singular pseudoaneurysm with bilateral inflow.
