Stief, Christian Georg; Gall, Helmut; Scherb, Wolfgang und Bähren, Wolfgang (April 1988): Erectile dysfunction due to ectopic penile vein. In: Urology, Vol. 31, Nr. 4: S. 300-303


A total of 86/260 patients with erectile dysfunction had venous leakage as (joint) etiology. In 5 of 86 patients cavernosography showed pathologic cavernosal drainage only via an ectopic penile vein into the femoral vein. After ligation of this pathologic draining vessel, 4 of 5 patients regained spontaneous erectability. One patient with pathologic bulbocavernosus reflex latencies needed intracavernosal injection of vasoactive drugs for full rigidity.
