PURPOSE: We investigated the results of voiding parameters according to the subtypes of audiovisual stimulation (AVS)- and sexual stimulation (SS)-penogram in patients with both erectile dysfunction (ED) and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty seven patients with ED and LUTS were included in this study. Erectile function was evaluated by international index of erectile function (IIEF)-5, AVS-penogram, and SS-penogram. After AVS-penogram, SS-penogram was performed 30 minutes after taking mirodenafil (100mg) orally. We also evaluated voiding function with international prostatic symptom score (IPSS), quality of life score (QoL), urinary flow rate (UFR), residual urine volume (RV), and transrectal ultrasonograpy (TRUS). Voiding functionparameters were analyzed according to the subtypes of AVS- and SS-penogram. RESULTS: Although there was tendency that the IIEF-5 scores were lower in patients who showed decreased erectile responses on AVS-penogram, but it did not reach the statistical significance (p= 0.09). The RV was significantly increased as the erectile function worsens based on AVS-penogram (p= 0.003). However, no significant relationship was found betweenresults of SS-penogram and voiding function parameters. CONCLUSIONS: Our results revealed some relationship between voiding function and erectile function evaluated by AVS-penogram, but not by SS-penogram, in patients with both ED and LUTS. AVS-penogram, as well as IIEF questionnaire, may play an important role in predicting voiding function in patient with both conditions .
