Intracavernous therapy in impotence after pelvic trauma. A preliminary study

Eur Urol 1986; 12: 413-417.

Pelvic trauma, especially when complicated by a posterior urethral disruption, may cause impotence in 50% of patients. The treatment of this kind of impotence has always been troublesome for the urologist. In fact penile prostheses or the revascularization procedures have sometimes been failures. We present a series of 6 patients with impotence after pelvic trauma managed by intracavernous injection of papaverine and we describe here the preliminary results obtained.
