With the development of transgenic mice to evaluate mechanisms of erectile function, it appears particularly advantageous to develop a standardized mouse model of penile erection. The purpose of the study reported here was to evaluate the novel application of intracavernosal pressure (ICP) monitoring in the mouse during electrophysiologic and pharmacologic induction of penile erection. In anesthetized adult male mice, the cavernous nerves (CN) were isolated unilaterally, and the corpora… CONTINUE READING
