The ability of anti-vasoactive intestinal peptide (anti-VIP) serum to suppress the electrically induced relaxation of the corpus cavernosum was evaluated in vitro to define the role of VIP in penile erection. Strips of canine corpora cavernosa were placed in 5-ml organ chambers containing oxygenated Krebs-Ringer solution. They were stretched and fixed in(More)
PURPOSE Men become impotent when exposed to hyperprolactinemia. To clarify its mechanisms the effects of intracorporal infusion of prolactin on electrically induced penile erection were evaluated in 12 male dogs. MATERIALS AND METHODS Prolactin (10 micrograms./ml.) or control saline was directly infused into the corpus cavernosum penis 5 minutes before(More)
In October, 1968, an epidemic of a peculiar skin disease similar to chloracne was reported in Fukuoka-Ken (Fukuoka prefecture), Japan. The epidemic was later proved to have spread not only over Fukuoka-Ken but also over 20 other prefectures in the western part of Japan (Fig. 1). It produced 1,057 patients according to the latest tabulation (August, 1971) by(More)
The effects of intracorporeal infusion of anti-vasoactive intestinal peptide (anti-VIP) antisera on electrically induced penile erection were studied in 18 male mongrel dogs. Electrical pulse stimulation (4 V, 4 milliseconds, 40 Hz) of the pelvic splanchnic nerve consistently produced penile erection ("electroerection"). Using this erection model, effects(More)
The effects of electrical stimulation of hypogastric nerve and sympathetic chain on 'electroerection' (penile erection induced by electrical stimulation of the pelvic nerve) were studied in dogs to clarify the physiological roles that these neural inputs may play in producing and/or maintaining penile erection. As an objective parameter of hemodynamics of(More)
We had an opportunity to treat a rare case of foreign body in the corpus cavernosum in a patient with cleft glans penis. The foreign body was a 13 cm wire, which was inserted by the patient himself for masturbation, and was removed surgically. To our knowledge, such a case has never been reported in the literature.
Using a pressure flow technique, quantitative analysis of the physiological characteristics of the outflow pathway of the corpus cavernosum was carried out in 19 male dogs weighing 7.5 to 23.0 kg. Pressure flow curves were made on dogs whose pelvic nerve was stimulated electrically and on dogs left unstimulated. When a cyclical change in saline perfusion(More)
