Diagnosis relies on the presence of a combination of parallel reduction of both spontaneous and adequate erections with local (focal) symptoms of lesions of the spinal cord or vascular system of the penis (confirm endourethral thermometry, measurement panelnogo blood pressure, intensity of local blood flow, rheovasography, phalloplasties and invasive rentgenovskaya main arteries and corpus cavernosum of the penis). Treatment. When vascular forms use different techniques angiosurgery (aimed at strengthening arterial inflow or restriction of venous outflow) or the insertion of internal prosthetic devices. In the early stages of a moderate local vascular insufficiency are able to achieve functional stabilization timely application of pneumomassage by LD (local decompression). When the spinal forms in the acute period may require surgical intervention laminectomy for tumor removal or conduct meningoradiculitis, in the period of stabilization, along with measures of General rehabilitation (training methods of self-care, self-movement and others)-local physiotherapy and medical treatment (mud rectal tampons, segmental massage, acupuncture, endolyumbalno or endokrine the introduction of proserine-strejnevoy mixture), sexual reeducate (teaching techniques for mechanical stimulation of the erogenous zones in the optimal rhythm and finding the most comfortable positions for intercourse), in some cases the use of removable prostheses (erectors).
