It is being reported in the Irish Examiner that a 22-year-old Irishman suffered an erection for seven weeks following a mountain bike crash. The injury, which was reported in the January edition of the Irish Medical Journal, happened as a result of falling against the handle bars of his mountain bike. 

From the Journal:

A 22-year-old male presented with a five week history of ongoing priapism after he had sustained a blow to perineum when he fell on to the crossbar of his mountain bike. Perineal pain, swelling and bruising had settled within days but he had ongoing priapism with rigid erection. Examination revealed no signs of injury but the penis was erect.

Doctors at Dublin’s Tallaght Hospital tried to treat the mans kickstand with “manual compression,”, but the erection returned almost instantly. A two-week long “pressure dressing” also failed.

Finally the Doctors were able to relieve the pressure by inserting gel foam and platinum coils between an artery and a vein to alter the blood flow to the organ.

“We were very happy with the outcome,” Dr. Ronan Browne told the Irish Independent. “It was an anxious time for the patient as it would be for any young man.”
