Abstract

This study was designed to evaluate the practical use of the combination of a low-dose intracavernous injection test (ICI) and visual erotic stimulation (VES) in the assessment of patients with erectile dysfunction. Additionally, a postinvestigation questionnaire (PIQ) was used to rate the erection following the investigation when the patient had left the office. It was hypothesized that the combination (ICIVES) andthe PIQ would yield a higher erectile response rate than ICI or VES alone and would minimize the occurrence of prolonged erection. Of the 90 patients studied, 17 (19%) showed adequate erections to VES, 10 (11%) to ICI, and 60 (67%) to ICIVES. Of the 30 non-responders, 7 (23%) reported adequate erections on the PIQ. Overall, in 75% of the patients adequate erections were achieved. No prolonged erections were encountered. It is concluded that the combination of a low-dose ICI and VES, and the application of a postinvestigation questionnaire, is a powerfuland safe test to select patients for autoinjection therapy.
