Conclusion: The length of the corpus cavernosum
and the destruction of cavernosal tissues do not depend only on DM.
Sildenafil, an oral medication, acts at the cellular level to increase smooth muscle relaxation in the corpus cavernosum
during sexual stimulation by the inhibition of phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5).
The blood flow stimulates the endothelial cells that line the lacunar spaces to produce more nitric oxide, and the increased nitric oxide production causes relaxation of the corpus cavernosum
smooth muscle tissue.
Recently, however, it has been postulated to inhibit enzyme activity (Na/Ka-ATPase) in the corpus cavernosum
, and so it would be placed within this peripherally-acting category in terms of its effect on ED (Gupta et al.
After removing strips of tissue from a rabbit's corpus cavernosum
, the group electrically stimulated the nerves that attach to the smooth muscle in the tissue.
He was immediately taken to the operating room to decompress the corpus cavernosum
Recent studies show that adenosine functions to relax the corpus cavernosum
and promote penile erection.
Xanthogranulomatous inflammation of corpus cavernosum
pT3: Tumor invades any of the following: corpus cavernosum
, beyond prostatic capsule, anterior vagina, bladder neck
Asteraceae) showed a significant, does dependent, relaxant effect on the smooth muscle of corpus cavernosum
strips, obtained from Guinea pig (65.
It also has to be said that, if the arteries bringing blood into the penis get furred up, there's insufficient blood to stretch the corpus cavernosum
and expand the penis, so erection will be a pretty half-hearted affair.
The penis was carefully denuded of skin down to the base, without damaging the prepuce (foreskin) and the left corpus cavernosum
The role of testosterone in erectile function is well-known and it affects nearly every facet of the erectile pathway from the central nervous system to smooth muscle function to the fibro-elastic properties of the corpus cavernosum
According to the investigative team, these data are unlike results for currently marketed ED drugs in similar experiments, particularly due to a beneficial effect on the function of the corpus cavernosum
Extracts of different polarity from Baccharis trimera, Haplopappus rigidus Huperzia saururus, Maytenus ilicifolia, Satureja parvifolia and Senecio eriophyton were tested for their relaxant activity on smooth muscle using L-phenylephrine precontracted strips of corpus cavernosum
obtained from Guinea pigs.
