OBJECTIVES This study sought to further elucidate the regulation of cavernous smooth muscle tone and to characterize mechanisms of cavernous activation and relaxation. METHODS In isolated strips of rabbit corpus cavernosum, extracellular electrical and mechanical activity were recorded simultaneously before and after pharmacologic stimulation. RESULTS(More)
OBJECTIVES We investigated the effect of suppressing plasma angiotensin II (ANG II) levels on arteriolar relaxation in the hamster cheek pouch. METHODS Arteriolar diameters were measured via television microscopy during short-term (3-6days) high salt (HS; 4% NaCl) diet and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibition with captopril (100mg/kg/day).

Introduced in 1988, cavernous electromyography and its evolution, single potential analysis of cavernous electrical activity (SPACE), seem to be promising diagnostic methods in the evaluation of erectile dysfunction. The aim of our study was to determine the influence of a centrally disturbed autonomic supply on SPACE recordings. SPACE was performed in 35(More)
