Abstract:
Soft tissue and bony injuries are well described risks of the increasingly popular sport of mountain biking. Priapism, a persisting unwanted penile erection, as a result of perineal straddle injury due to a fall astride bicycle handlebar, is rare. We present a case of a competitive mountain biker with high flow priapism after such an injury who presented late but was successfully treated by non-invasive selective arterial embolization.
