Venous leak Embolization
Does anyone know much about this procedure? I read online that this procedure is actually a safe procedure as oppose to venous litigation surgery.
I found out someone on a forum with venous leak and he said he had surgery for it. He has not replied back to me so I cannot ask him more question about it.
He said ..
I’m pretty sure mine was from a masturbation accident when I was a kid.
Similar symptoms for me included never getting morning wood, and also the erection going down when I stopped squeezing my penis. I usually just used a few fingers to block off the vein, but, like you, what also kind of worked was squeezing my legs together so it trapped the blood in the penis, hence keeping the erection.
I’m not sure what to tell you. It definitely sounds like a venous leak, as your doctor seems to have confirmed. It’s not something he should have ignored. I would advise trying to pinpoint which vein is leaking yourself (I was lucky, my leaking vein stuck out from the skin and was thick and chord like). Otherwise, your best bet would be to find a doctor, or interventional radiologist who is willing to help find exactly which vein is leaking, and either tie it off, block it with coils or both. Do a google search on venous leak embolization, there’s a few methods out there. I’m pretty sure my doctor both implanted coils, and tied the vein off at the base of my penis. It has been nearly 3 years now since my procedure and everything still works fine.
Does anyone know where to find these type of surgeons? The only one I know is in Australia and that is the one this guy told me he went to. I live in New York City and I do not know where to find these surgeons. Does anyone know if venous leak embolization surgery is legal in the United States?
