A multidisciplinary approach was used to diagnose 12 patients with vasculogenic impotence. Deep dorsal vein ligation was performed in 8 men to treat venous incompetence. Venous arterialization according to the technique of Virag was used in 4 men to treat arterial inflow insufficiency. A 75 per cent success rate was noted for the correction of venous incompetence. With an average followup of 1 year, excellent success was achieved in re-establishing corporeal blood flow with the technique of venous arterialization plus creation of a venocorporeal shunt.
