What is Penile Fracture?
We offer emergency care for men with sexual problems. Dr. Shteynshlyuger is experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of a penile fracture.
Injury to the Penis During Sex
Penile fracture refers to a tear in the tunica albuginea of the penis which leads to loss of pressure maintaining mechanism of corpora cavernosa, the part of the penis that is responsible for producing erections. Penile fracture can also cause tearing into the urethra and lead to urethral bleeding and blood in urine.
What are the Symptoms of Penile Fracture?
Sudden onset of pain in the penis during sex is the most common symptom of penile fracture. This occurs if the penis slips from the vagina and hits perineum (the area between the vagina and the rectum). A popping sound is often heard which is followed by severe penile pain. There may be ‘black and blue” in the penis. There may also be blood in urine or blood coming from the urethra.
Penile fracture is an emergency and requires going immediately to the nearest emergency room for best results.
What are the Risks of Penile Fracture?
Injury to the penis from a penile fracture can lead to erectile dysfunction, inability to obtain and maintain adequate erections. Narrowing and stricture of the urethra can occur leading to urinary problems. Untreated, infection of the penis can occur.
Scarring in the penis can lead to Peyronie’s disease and curvature of the penis.
How is Penile Fracture Diagnosed?
Penile fracture can be diagnosed from history and physical examination. Penile ultrasound or MRI of the penis are used to confirm the diagnosis.
What are the Treatment Options for Penile Fracture?
If recognized promptly, surgical repair offers the best chance to prevent erectile dysfunction.
If recognized late, observation or surgical repair may be undertaken.
