Abstract

The problem of vasculogenic impotence was evaluated by laser Doppler flowmetry with the LD5000 capillary perfusion monitor to determine cutaneous penile blood flow in 25 men defined previously as impotent by Doppler ultrasound with penile brachial ratios of 0.63 ± 0.14. Erotic visual stimulation for 1, 2 and 4 minutes did not statistically change the cutaneous flow as measured by laser Doppler flowmetry from its baseline of 20 mv. The dynamics of skin microcirculation in the penis may reflect changes in the deeper vessels and represent an alternate, dependable method to evaluate capillary perfusion.
