of a vasoactive erectile agent and alcohol or drugs abuse.
Detumescence following intracavernosal injection
of sympathomimetics like adrenalin (1-100 [micro]g).
A review of an intracavernosal injection
Injection therapy or intracavernosal injection
should be only indicated for non-responders to oral therapy.
In animal models, direct intracavernosal injection
of recombinant VEGF protein or adenoviral VEGF that contains plasmids has shown dramatic results based on cavernosography.
The patient underwent Doppler ultrasound of his penis with intracavernosal injection
of trimix to induce erection, which showed no vascular or structural abnormalities, but did reproduce his pain.
showed that precise Doppler sampling and blood velocity measurements of the deep cavernosal arteries could be performed before and after intracavernosal injection
of vasodilating agents and 75% increase in vessel diameter is good indication of normal arterial flow into the cavernosal artery.
Lastly, they have been used successfully to augment partial erection after intracavernosal injection
with a vasoactive drug, intraurethral therapy or sildenafil therapy, and by patients in whom surgery or intracavernosal injection
therapy is contraindicated.
