Methods:The latencies and amplitudes of bulbocavernosus (BCR), ischiocavernosus(ICR),somatosensory evoked potientials (SSEP) were determined in 30 patients with neurogenic and psychiatric erection dysfunction(ED), and compared with 30 normal male subjects.
Results The 73 patients occurred early postoperative complications,including residual in 7 cases(9.6%),urethral infection in 12 cases(16.4%),urethra stricture in 18 cases(24.7%),postoperative bleeding in 23 cases(31.5%),light postoperative incontinence in 5 cases(6.8%),erective dysfunction in 6 cases(8.2%) and TURS in 2 cases(2.7%).
No relationship was found between neurophysiological abnormalities and the presence or severity of erectile dysfunction, showing that these tests have little diagnostic usefulness in MS patients with impotence.
Acute motor axonal neuropathy presenting with bowel, bladder, and erectile dysfunction

In PD patients, the prevalence of orthostatic dizziness, bladder dysfunction, erectile dysfunction and hyperhidrosis was significantly higher compared with controls.
The measurement of nocturnal erections has gained clinical relevance for the diagnosis of erectile dysfunction because it allows an objective and quantitative assessment of the erectile capacity.
