Abstract

Topical nitroglycerin ointment has been studied in the laboratory as a possible treatment for impotence of various etiologies. However, there is limited information on the topical administration of nitroglycerin in a natural environment allowing normal sexual function. We report 3 cases of impotence that were successfully treated with topical nitroglycerin ointment.
