Recovery of erectile function after salvage radical prostatectomy for locally recurrent prostate cancer after radiotherapy
Neoplasm Recurrence, Local

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.
