A 22-year old Irish man has finally gotten treatment for a penile erection caused by a mountain bike accident that happened over 7 weeks ago.
The unidentified man suffered the erection after he crashed into the handlebars of his bike. For reasons best known to him, he waited for five weeks before realizing that the hard guy is not budging.
So he sought medical help at Dublin’s Tallaght Hospital, where it took doctors an additional 2 weeks to find the cure for what they described as ‘high-flow’ priapism ‘with rigid erection.’
According to The Irish Examiner, ‘Medics eventually treated the man after inserting gel foam and four tiny platinum coils at an abnormal connection between an artery and a vein that supplied blood to the man’s penis. This reduced the high-flow blood supply to the penis, ending the erection.’
‘We were very happy with the outcome,’ said Dr Ronan Browne. ‘It was an anxious time for the patient, as it would be for any young man.’
Browne says the man is recovering well from his ‘unusual’ injury.
