BACKGROUND Unilateral or bilateral division of the parasympathetic nerves during resection of rectal cancer may result in sexual erectile dysfunction. The purposes of this project were twofold: to determine the ability to demonstrate penile tumescence in response to parasympathetic nerve stimulation after rectal cancer resection and to correlate the nerve stimulation response with clinical sexual function 6 months after operation.
