Cavernosal alpha-blockade: a new technique for investigating and treating erectile impotence.


Intravacernosal injection of phenoxybenzamine, in a dose too small to have significant general effects, caused full erection lasting between half an hour and 30 hours in 30 of 4 potent men (2 normal, 2 anorgasmic) and in 6 of 11 impotent men. In the remaining potent man and 3 of the remaining eleven impotent men have had sexual intercourse, for the first time for months or years, while under the drug. The practical implications of this new discovery are discussed.
