Title: Superselective Embolization with Coils in High-Flow Priapism

Abstract

Priapism can be divided into 'low-flow' veno-occlusive priapism and, especially in children, rare 'high-flow' arterial priapism. We report a 5-year-old boy who developed arterial priapism after blunt perineal trauma that was successfully treated by superselective embolization with microcoils.
