AUA/SMSNA Releases New Clinical Guideline on Priapism

The American Urological Association (AUA) and the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) released a new clinical practice guideline to aid in the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of acute ischemic priapism in men.

Priapism is a persistent penile erection that continues hours beyond, or is unrelated to, sexual stimulation and results in a prolonged and uncontrolled erection. Given its time-dependent and progressive nature, priapism is a situation that both urologists and emergency medicine practitioners must be familiar with and comfortable managing.
