The intracorporeal injection of papaverine (ICP) is now a well recognized therapeutic option in the management of impotence.

Although intracorporeal papaverine can induce erections in these men, libido is also reduced so that the role of ICP is limited to those men complying with the wishes of a highly motivated partner.
