New Concepts in Cavernous Nerve Localization and Functional Recovery after Radical Prostatectomy – Summary:
Arthur L. Burnett II, MD, MBA, FACS, Professor of Urology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, discusses therapeutic and investigational strategies for improving erectile function after prostatectomy. He goes on to discuss how cavernous nerve-sparing techniques have reduced erectile dysfunction after prostatectomy by 10-40%, how mapping cavernous nerves with novel imaging techniques can help minimize nerve and vascular injury at the time of surgery, as well as the impact of investigational, local electrostimulation of damaged cavernous nerves in an animal model cohort.
