Abstract

The dorsal nerve of the penis (DNP) is the primary source of afferentsomatic input from the penis and is critical in the male sexual functions of erection and ejaculation. Using genitourinary electrodiagnostic techniques, this study was conducted to investigate the effect of pharmacologic erection on the DNP. Three tests were administered, and the changes in the DNP between flaccid, stretched, and erect states wereexamined. Calculated nerve conduction velocity (cNCV) measurements ofthe DNP increased with pharmacologic erection because mechanical straightening of the nerve allowed for a more precise measurement of nervelength. The latencies of the cortical evoked response and the bulbocavernosus reflex were not significantly changed with stretch or pharmacologic erection. In the evaluation of impotence, cNCV DNP measurementsshould be performed on the erect penis. (C) 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
