ESWT (Extra-corporeal Shock Wave Treatment)
Extracorporeal shockwaves are high-pressure, low-frequency sound waves, generated by a device outside the body and applied to the penis of patients with vasculogenic ED. One of the causes of Erectile Dysfunction is the poor flow of blood into the penis caused by unhealthy blood vessels.By shooting multiple low-intensity shockwaves into the penis, new and healthy blood vessels develop. This is known as neo-vascularization.
Who will benefit from ESWT?
All patients (40 to 70 years old) with chronic diseases such as Diabetes, High Blood Pressure or High Cholesterol will benefit from ESWT. Results from studies have shown that LI-ESWT induces neovascularization, thus enhancing penile perfusion and substantially improving erectile function. A number of studies have been published on improving efficacy of PDE5i in men who do not respond or respond poorly to PDE5i therapy, suggesting also a new potential way other than intracavernosal injections or penile implants to increase the efficacy of PDE5i therapy.
The P-Shot involves taking platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood and injecting it into your penis. This means your doctor takes your own cells and tissues and injects them into your penile tissues to promote tissue growth and purportedly give you better erections.The most popular form is called the Priapus Shot. This name, taken from the Greek deity of sexual health, PRP therapy involves injecting a concentration of platelets from your own blood into your body. Platelets are involved in normal wound healing and mechanisms like blood clotting. We use the P-Shot for :
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Peyronie’s disease, a condition in which scar tissue makes the penis curve when it’s erect
- Penis enhancement
- General sexual function, performance, and orgasm enhancement
The benefits of this treatment on sexual performance are:
- Increased blood flow
- Repair responses in some tissue or cells
- New neural pathways being established (from new experiences and positive reinforcement)
