Run Time: 2 minutesbroken-penis

Author: Dr. Erik Verzemnieks

Educational Pearls:

  • During an erection the corpus cavanosum fills with blood, when enough stress is placed on the penis during an erection the surrounding tissue can rupture.
  • A broken penis most often occurs during intercourse in the “reverse cowgirl” position.
  • This condition requires surgical repair of the penis to prevent tearing of the penile veins or the urethra.
