Treatment of Erectile Dysfunction

Medicines are the first line of therapy for Erectile Dysfunction Treatment. 

Vaccuum Erection Devices can provide support to elderly patients with erectile dysfunction who are not benefitted by medications alone. This involves applying a ring at the root of the penis and using a pump based vaccuum device to engorge the penis with blood. 

Intracavernosal Injections are a sure shot way to get an erection. BIMIX or TRIMIX are two commonly available injection preparations that can be injected right before intercourse to get a hard erection. The problems associated with injection therapy are that the injections may be painful and may result in a state of prolonged erection called priapism that requires emergency care.

The healing properties of blood and various other factors can be used to treat erectile dysfunction. Patients blood sample is taken and platelet rich plasma is extracted out and injected at multiple points in the penis. The various growth factors present in this plasma lead to development of new blood vessels and improve blood flow to the penis. This therapy is presently experimental and is only useful in patients with mild to moderate erection issues of arteriogenic nature.

Just like PRP therapy, Low Intensity Shock Wave therapy has also been found to be very useful in the treatment of mild to moderate vasculogenic ED. Multiple sittings are required for sustained effect but with continuing lifestyle changes this can be long term solution for some patients. 

Penile Implant Surgery is the best treatment for refractory Erectile Dysfunction. You can read more about penile implants on this page.
