Penile biothesiometry, already employed in the past in the study of penile sensitivity, has recently been proposed as diagnostic rationale for patients suffering from presumably neurogenous impotence. With this method it is possible to verify the integrity of both the somatic sensitivity of the penis and the peripheral sensitivity projected into the cerebral cortex. In this context, an attempt is made to verify whether the biothesiometric test can give useful elements of predictivity for the identification of sensitively undamaged penile areas in patients submitted to previous nerve-sparing surgery of the penis.

Abstract

Penile biothesiometry, already employed in the past in the study of penile sensitivity, has recently been proposed as diagnostic rationale for patients suffering from presumably neurogenous impotence. With this method it is possible to verify the integrity of both the somatic sensitivity of the penis and the peripheral sensitivity projected into the cerebral cortex. In this context, an attempt is made to verify whether the biothesiometric test can give useful elements of predictivity for the identification of sensitively undamaged penile areas in patients submitted to previous nerve-sparing surgery of the penis.
