Neurophysiological Testing to Assess Penile Sensory Nerve Damage After Radical Prostatectomy
The Journal of Sexual Medicine,

Yiou R et al. – Sensory nerve fibers carrying penile skin sensations travel with the cavernous nerves in the pelvis. Therefore, testing these sensations may help to evaluate the extent of cavernous nerve damage caused by Radical prostatectomy (RP). In this series, post–operative changes in penile sensory thresholds differed with the surgical technique of RP, as the cavernous nerves were preserved or not. The present results support the value of quantitative penile sensory threshold measurement to indicate RP–induced cavernous nerve injury.
