[Penile revascularization surgery in vascular impotence].

[Article in German]


The application of objective diagnostic methods to patients complaining of erectile dysfunctions has proved that 30 to 40% are based on pathologic changes of the penile vascular system. The most important diagnostic procedures (NPT, Doppler, BCR-latency time, dynamic cavernosography with simultaneous passive erection, penile angiography) are emphasized and possible pitfalls with reference to misinterpretation of the diagnostic findings are discussed. Technique and results of current revascularization procedures (epigastricopenile anastomosis, revascularization of cavernous and dorsal arteries using vein grafts, deep dorsal vein arterialization) are discussed and first own experiences with aforementioned techniques presented.
