Comparison of the effects of prostanoids on human penile circumflex veins and corpus cavernosum tissue.

Abstract

The mechanical effects of the prostaglandins PGE1, PGE2, PGF2 alpha and PGI2 were investigated in human isolated penile circumflex veins (CV) and corpus cavernosum (CC) tissue. PGE1 did not affect resting tension, while the compound produced relaxation of both CC and CV preparations after precontraction with noradrenaline (NA) 3 x 10(-6)M. PGE2 produced… (More)
