Abstract:

THE PROPOSED STUDY WILL DEVELOP AN ACCURATE SEGMENTAL PULSATILE PRESSURE ANALYZER AND PENILE SEGMENTAL CUFF FOR DETECTING PENILE BLOOD FLOW AND PRESSURE PULSES. THE GOAL IS TO CONSTRUCT TWO PROTOTYPES FOR STUDYING AND EVALUATING MALE IMPOTENCE. EARLY INVESTIGATIONS WERE CONDUCTED WITH A CUFF, SPECIFICALLY DEVELOPED FOR DETECTING ARTERIAL BLOCKAGE IN LIMBS, WHICH PINCHED THE PENIS, AND AN INSTRUMENT (PULSE VOLUME RECORDER, MANUFACTURED BY LIFE SCIENCE, INC.) WHICH COULD MAINTAIN CUFF INFLATION PRESSURE FOR ONLY 30 MINUTES. DR. KARACAN'S PREVIOUS WORK ON MALE IMPOTENCE HAS SHOWN THAT THE PROPOSED DEVICE COULD BE USED TO DETECT AND EVALUATE PENILE BLOOD PULSES. HIS WORK HAS ALSO PRECIPITATED THE PROPOSED SPECIFICATIONS THAT SUCH A CUFF MUST NOT CAUSE PHYSICAL DEFORMITY OF THE PENIS DURING EVALUATION AND THAT THE ANALYZER SHOULD BE ACCURATE AND CAPABLE OF MAINTAINING A CONSTANT FOR THIS DEVELOPMENT, DR. BALKANLI WILL LICENSE TEXAS MEDICAL ELECTRONICS CO. TO USE U.S. PATENT #4,279,155,
