Example text

This hyperpolarization prevents the opening of voltage-dependent calcium channels, thereby reducing intracellular calcium; (2) Activation of guanylate cyclase which catalyzes the conversion of guanosine triphosphate (GTP) to cGMP. This triggers relaxation by lowering intracellular calcium. Other muscle relaxants act via cAMP-dependent mechanisms and include prostaglandin (PG) E1 and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP). These substances react with membrane receptors coupled to a G protein which stimulates adenylate cyclase to produce cAMP, thus lowering intracellular calcium.

HEMODYNAMICS OF ERECTION Penile erection is a hemodynamic response to a combination of humoral, neurogenic and local signals. Vasodilatory signaling coincides with reduced vasoconstrictor activity. The result is increased flow through the dilating cavernosal arteries. At the same time, the smooth muscle helicine arteries and lacunar spaces relax, thereby allowing blood to fill the intracorporeal space (Figures 23 and 24). Cavernosal filling compresses the obliquely running subtunical venules against the sturdy tunica albuginea, resulting in a hundred-fold increase in resistance to venous outflow (Figure 25).

As the world’s population ages over the next few decades (Figure 35), the number of men who will suffer erectile dysfunction seems certain to rise. One problem for epidemiologists trying to quantify the extent and impact of erectile dysfunction is the frequent unwillingness of men to discuss the problem frankly. The accuracy of almost all data in this disease area is therefore impaired by the reluctance of many, particularly older, men to respond to what they regard as overly personal questions.
