Which body part or function is involved in Prostate and Erectile Dysfunction?

Prostate a walnut-size gland located between the penis and bladder and occurs deep in the groin area of men. The prostate gland plays an essential role in the male reproductive system, being the largest accessory gland that secretes enzymes in the semen these enzymes are proteolytic in nature breaking the clotting factors to keep the semen in its liquid state for easy flow through the female reproductive tract during sexual intercourse. The secretion of the prostate gland protects and nourishes the sperms and during ejaculation, it squeezes this fluid into the urethra expelling it further along with the sperms as semen.

The structure of the prostate is about two-third glandular and the remaining part is fibromuscular. The urethra and ejaculation ducts pass through the prostate and divide it into different anatomic sections lobes superomedial, anteromedial, inferolateral, and, inferoposterior. But there is another more useful clinical division of the prostate comprising different zones:

  • Peripheral zone – About 65% of the prostate gland is comprised of the peripheral zone positioned on the posterior side. This region is felt against the rectum and is of great importance the ducts of this area empty vertically in the prosthetic urethra and may play a role in urine reflux. The prevalence of chronic and acute inflammation in the peripheral zone is alsconsidered tbe a major cause of prostate cancer.
  • Transitional zone – About 5-10% of the prostate consists of these glands present centrally around the urethra.
  • Central zone – It takes about 25% of the prostate volume and empties in the prostatic urethra. The glands of this zone are found surrounding the ejaculatory ducts.

The vessels involved in blood supply to the prostate are called prostatic arteries while the veins responsible for the drainage of the prostate are called prostatic venous plexus. The innervation of the prostate includes sensory nerves, sympathetic, and parasympathetic received from the inferior hypogastric plexus. The innervation of the prostate smooth muscles with the sympathetic nerves activates and play role in ejaculation. The neurovascular bundles that flank around the prostate supply the penis with nerve signals and corpora cavernosa with essential blood supply making these neurovascular bundles vital for normal erection.
