Abstract

Compared with standard RP, the overall potency results after salvage RP are poor. However, select patients with good preoperative erectile function who have bilateral NVB preservation may recover erections sufficient for intercourse aided by sildenafil. Peripheral nerve grafts did not appear to influence the recovery of erections in this patient population.
