Possible molecular mechanisms of cryoablation-induced impotence in a rat model.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Cryoablation of the prostate has been reported to induce impotence as a consequence of cavernosal nerve injury. This study is designed to investigate the early and late effects of cavernosal nerve cryoablation on growth factor expression and erectile function in a rat model. METHODS Forty male rats were divided into two groups (n=20 each). The… (More)
