Uro-andrological glossary

Priapism


An erection lasting longer than 6 hours is thus defined. Priapism is classified into high flow arterial and low flow ischemic. The former is generally caused by lacerations of the cavernous arteries following perineal trauma, the latter often idiopathic or caused by systemic diseases or medications.
