Sample text

Adequate calcium homeostasis is, therefore, fundamental to the normal regulation of smooth muscle tone. Three major mechanisms are involved: (1) Influx of extracellular calcium through voltageregulated channels; (2) Activation of membrane-bound receptors which allow extracellular calcium to enter through receptor-operated channels; (3) Activation of signal pathways which allow intracellular release of calcium from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. Relaxation of cavernosal smooth muscle may be thought of as ‘resetting’ the contractile machinery.

As the world’s population ages over the next few decades (Figure 35), the number of men who will suffer erectile dysfunction seems certain to rise. One problem for epidemiologists trying to quantify the extent and impact of erectile dysfunction is the frequent unwillingness of men to discuss the problem frankly. The accuracy of almost all data in this disease area is therefore impaired by the reluctance of many, particularly older, men to respond to what they regard as overly personal questions.
