In brief: Drugs and vessels

Trazadone, arterial venous fistula (usually trauma), sickle cell disease to name a few are associated with priapism.
Before viagra (sildenafil) there where and still are other medications for erectile dysfunction. These medications also are also associated with priapism. Priapism is an erection for longer than 4-6 hours lenghty priapism can be associated with permanent erectile dysfunction (ed).
