Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1308. Reviews the book, The New Injection Treatment for Impotence: Medical and Psychological Aspects by Gorm Wagner and Helen Singer Kaplan (see record 1993-97202-000). Intracavernosal injection treatment (ICI) is a pharmacological approach to male erectile disorder (impotence) in which the patient learns to self-inject smooth muscle relaxant medications into the erectile tissues of the penis. Gorm Wagner and Helen Singer Kaplan's collaboration is intended to provide physicians and psychotherapists with technical information and clinical guidelines concerning the medical and psychological indications, contraindications, and complications of ICI. The authors have succeeded admirably. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
