PURPOSE Special attention has been focused on the contribution of the ischiocavernosus muscles to intracorporeal pressure during erection. MATERIALS AND METHODS Length of the ischiocavernosus muscles and corpora cavernosa was studied in 30 cadavers. RESULTS A biomechanical model for calculating interference of the ischiocavernosus muscles in rigidity during the initial phase of penile erection is proposed. CONCLUSIONS We found that, among other things, intracorporeal pressure can be… CONTINUE READING
