Evaluations of nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT) and penile blood pressure were performed on (1) a group of nondiabetics with normal NPT, (2) a group of nondiabetics with abnormally diminished NPT, and (3) a group of diabetics with abnormally diminished NPT. The 12 subjects in each group complained of impotence. Analysis of blood pressure data taken before the NPT evaluation suggests the possibility of selective low arterial blood pressure in impotent patients who show no obvious signs of other vascular disorders.
