In the period from June 2009 to January 2014 a total of five patients with a diagnosis of priapism were treated at the Urology Department of the University Hospital St. Anna, Brno. All patients suffered with low flow ischemic priapism. The authors describe three case reports with different process and effective therapeutic modality chosen. They consider the period between the occurrence of difficulties and the beginning of the treatment as the limiting factor in the prognosis of this sudden urologic event.
