Erectile Dysfunction - Blunt or penetrating trauma to the external genitals, perineum or pelvis Factor

RMA definition

The RMA has defined blunt or penetrating trauma as "an injury that results in pain and swelling or tenderness for at least forty-eight hours and which is of sufficient severity to warrant medical attention".  The RMA has specified that blunt or penetrating trauma includes surgical trauma.

Medical attention may not have been sought but it must have been warranted.  Medical attention does not necessarily mean treatment by a doctor; it may include the provision of pain killing drugs, rest, and hot and cold packs.  Medical attention would be provided in the case of surgical trauma.

The external genitals are the penis and testicles.

The perineum is the region between the anus and the scrotum.

The pelvis is the basin formed by the hip bones and the lower portion of the vertebral column constituting the lowest part of the trunk.
