In this period we observed seven patients of whom four presented with low flow and three with high flow priapism. In two of the patients with ischemic priapism, simple blood aspiration from the corpora allowed for a quick detumescence, while in the other two cases a derivative intervention (one spongio cavernous and one glans cavernous) had to be performed. In all the three patients with high flow priapism we performed a superselective arteriography that obtained the visualisation of the arteriovenous fistula. These patients restarted their sexual activity after about three months. A six months a patient with low flow priapism restored sexual activity due to sildenafil 50 mg.
