To Investigate the Value of Penile Elastography in the Diagnosis of Fibrosis of CC Clinical Trial
Value of Penile Elastography in Diagnosis of Patients With Erectile Dysfunction and Non-responders to Intra-corporal Injection
Penile erection is a neurovascular response that induces penile arterial dilatation, increased blood flow, and cavernous smooth muscles (CSM) relaxation; the enlarging corpora cavernosa compress the subtunical veins, against a rigid tunica albuginea, and entrap blood within the penis. Impaired CSM function can result in corporo veno-occlusive dysfunction (CVOD) and erectile dysfunction. Nevertheless, diagnostic tests, which can evaluate the status of CSM, are not clinically applicable. Penile elastography is a new promising tool that can assess the stiffness of the corpora cavernosa. Accordingly penile elastography can assess the status of the cavernous tissue and can distinguish patient with corporal fibrosis.
