Erectile dysfunction after radical prostatectomy: the impact of nerve-sparing status and surgical approach
International Journal of Impotence Research: The Journal of Sexual Medicine, 05/07/2012Koehler N et al.
Regardless of nerve–sparing status and surgical approach, postsurgical improvement of erectile function (EF) does not mean a full convalescence of presurgical EF. Instead, it may rather reduce the degree of postsurgical erectile dysfunction (ED) in time. Consequently, urologists should disclose to the patient that ED is a likely side effect of radical prostatectomy.
