OBJECTIVES Impotence, specifically corporal veno-occlusive dysfunction (CVOD), occurs after radical prostatectomy. It results from the effects of cavernosal nerve damage, which causes smooth muscle (SM) loss and an increase in collagen within the corpora. Recent reports have suggested that long-term treatment with phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors after(More)
INTRODUCTION Corporal veno-occlusive dysfunction (CVOD), which usually is associated with a loss of smooth muscle cells (SMC) and an increase in fibrosis within the corpora cavernosa, can be induced by an injury to the cavernosal nerves. The corporal tissue expresses inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), presumably as an antifibrotic and SMC-protective(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether a long-term single daily oral dose of a longer half-life phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) inhibitor, tadalafil, has a similar effect to that of the shorter half-life PDE5 inhibitors sildenafil and vardenafil, and can prevent the fibrosis and resultant corporal veno-occlusive dysfunction (CVOD) occurring after cavernosal nerve (CN)(More)
Recently, an unusual subtype of large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL) with distinctive clinicopathologic features has been recognized; it is characterized by involvement of bone marrow with or without liver and/or spleen, but no lymph node or other extranodal sites, usually associated with fever, anemia, and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). Because of this(More)
