A 6 yr old boy came to us with a persistent painful erection secondary to a fall from the bed.
Doppler examination showed a pseudoaneurysm in the right corpora cavernosa.
Digital substraction angiography confirmed an active bleed from the dorsal artery of the penis.
This artery was superselectively entered using a Progreat microcatheter and embolized using Gel foam scrapings.
This is a technique of non-permanent embolization of the artery so that it would heal within a few days and blood flow to the penis would be maintained without blocking the penile artery permanently.
Post procedure angiogram showed no filling of this pseudoaneurysm.
