AIMS To better understand the anatomy of the region of the male membranous urethra in order to preserve continence during radical cystectomy and prostatectomy. METHODS Cadaveric dissections of 15 male specimens were undertaken to investigate the nerves to membranous urethra. The nerves were traced from both an intrapelvic approach and a perineal approach.(More)
To evaluate the therapeutic potential of human umbilical cord blood mesenchymal stem cells (hUCBMSCs) on promoting erectile function in a rat model of bilateral cavernous nerve (CN) crush injury. Fifty male Sprague–Dawley rats were randomly assigned to sham + PBS group (n = 10), BCNI (bilateral cavernous nerve crush injury) + PBS group (n = 10), BCNI +(More)
PURPOSE Erectile dysfunction (ED) continues to be a significant problem for men following radical prostatectomy. We hypothesize that intracavernous injection of BDNF-hypersecreting human umbilical cord blood mesenchymal stem cells (hUCB-MSCs) can ameliorate ED in a rat model of cavernous nerve electrocautery injury (CNEI). METHODS Forty-two male(More)
