Abstract

Shunt surgery is not universally successful toward detumescence, may lead to erectile dysfunction, and can make eventual penile prosthesis insertion difficult. Penile prosthesis insertion during a priapistic episode alleviates ischemic pain, allows the patient to resume sexual function sooner, and prevents corporal scarring and shortening that makes subsequent prosthesis implantation difficult.
