Figure 4: Changes in collagen III in the corpus cavernosum at 1 week, 3 weeks, and 5 weeks after bilateral cavernous injury. (a) Representative immunohistochemistry images of collagen III in 5-μm cross sections of paraffin-embedded penile midshaft. (b) Comparison of semi-quantitative mean densities of collagen III expression between treatment groups at each time point. *P < 0.05 means BCNR and Sham versus the BCNC group; #P < 0.05 means BCNC and Sham versus the BCNR group. (c) Comparison of semi-quantitative mean densities of collagen III expression within treatment groups at each time point. *P < 0.05 means week 1 and week 5 versus week 3; #P < 0.05 means week 1 and week 3 versus week 5. Scale bars = 300 μm. BCNR: bilateral cavernous nerve resection; BCNC: bilateral cavernous nerve crushing.
