Table 1 Mean amplitude and latency measurements of evoked cavernous activity (ECA) and hand and foot sympathetic skin responses (SSR) in the nerve-sparing (NS) radical prostatectomy and non-nerve sparing (nonNS) pelvic surgery groups

From: Evoked cavernous activity: measuring penile autonomic innervation following pelvic surgery

  Amplitude (s.d.) (μV) Latency (s.d.) (ms)
NS group (N=16)   
 Left ECA 228.1 (171.4) 1669.4 (323.7)
 Right ECA 295.6 (183.9) 1765.6 (367.0)
 Hand SSR 2904.6 (1426.7) 1414.4 (241.8)
 Foot SSR 1868.6 (1216.1) 1886.3 (402.8)
Non-NS group (N=11)   
 Left ECA (N=3) 472.7 (283.5) 2746.7 (3844.1)
 Right ECA (N=3) 417.8 (202.3) 3723.3 (3756.0)
 Hand SSR 2085.2 (1583.5) 1403.0 (316.2)
 Foot SSR 2023.2 (1618.3) 2250.9 (816.2)
  1. The non-NS group had only three ECA responses. s.d.=standard deviation, μV=microvolt, ms=millisecond.
