Stuttering Priapism: Insights into Pathogenesis and Management
Morrison BF et al. – Stuttering priapism is a variant of the ischemic type that is characterized by repetitive, transient, painful, self–limiting episodes of priapism. It is associated with various hematological disorders, including sickle cell disease and pharmacological treatments. The consequences of ineffective treatment of priapism are erectile dysfunction and impaired quality of life due to chronic pain and physical disfigurement. Many of the existing medical therapeutic options for treatment of stuttering priapism are nonmechanistic and associated with significant adverse effects.
