Genitofemoral nerve stimulation induced an increase in ICP in the nerve transfer group. The mean ICP in this group was (33.8±9.4 mmHg), which is higher than the mean value in the nerve resection group (3.9±1.0 mmHg) but lower than that in the control group (69.8±12.2 mmHg) (p < 0.05). The formation of new neural pathways was confirmed by the appearance of Fluoro-Gold labeled neurons in the L-1 and L-2 spinal cord segments in the nerve transfer group. Regenerative nerve morphological examination showed good axonal regeneration after genitofemoral nerve transfer. CONCLUSIONS;: Nerve regeneration can be obtained by genitofemoral nerve to pelvic nerve transfer, and erectile function can be restored.
