Priapism is defined as a persistent tumescence or erection of the penis not associated to sexual desire and/or stimulation. Idiopathic recurrent priapism may also occasionally follow treatment of veno-occlusive priapism and represents a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge.We report a single case of non-ischemic priapism that resulted after distal shunting procedure for severe and prolonged ischemic priapism and yet occurred without evidence of a cavernosal-sinusoidal fistula that was successfully treated with a bilateral selective arterial embolization. Our protocol of delayed inflatable penile prosthesis placement after a vacuum erectile device program was implemented.The continuing use of a vacuum erectile device represented a bridge and an adjuvant therapy useful to facilitate later prosthesis placement. Anatomical and functional outcomes were optimal. No postoperative complaints or complications were reported.
