Abstract

In this study we aimed to determine the importance of visual erotic stimulation (VES) alone, and in combination with intracavernosal papaverine injection (ICPE) in the differential diagnosis of erectile impotence. Sixty-four patients with erection porblems were investigated betwen June 1992 and January 1994.

VES could be the first investigative method in the differential diagnosis of erectile impotence. This will help us in some groups of patients with psychogenic impotence to avoid the application and complications of ICPE. In patients with insufficient erections with VES alone, ICPE must be combined with VES in order to detect the causes of psychogenic erectile impotence more correctly.
