Brief Summary:
Iontophoresis is a employed to facilitate drug absorption without systemic effect. This study investigates cutaneous microcirculation when we associate sildenafil per os with SNP via iontophoresis.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Drug: sildenafil Drug: nitroprussiate iontophoresis Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The main outcome is the proof of concept of effect of systemic absorption sildenafil on cutaneous microcirculation associated with SNP iontophoresis.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 40 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
