Erectile response to intracavernous injection of vasoactive drugs after penile prosthesis removal

By Christian Georg Stief, Helmut Gall, Wolfgang Scherb and Wolfgang Bähren


Two patients with a history of penile prosthesis removal presented for non-prosthetic treatment of their erectile dysfunction. The first patient had a penile implant for two years before it was removed and showed extensive cavernosal fibrosis. He did not respond to intracavernosal injection of vasoactive drugs. The second patient had the prosthesis for four weeks. He showed no evidence of cavernosal fibrosis and responded well to the intracavernous injection. He has been in an iniracavernous autoinjection program for more than one year without complications.
