In brief: Yes

There is a syndrome which can be diagnosed by cavernosography which can show a leak from the penile veins, particularly at the base, which can be a cause of erectile dysfunction, called veno occlusive ed.
With the advent of the pde-5 inhibitors, this has become a procedure that is performed less often.
