A Novel Modality for Erectile Dysfunction�
Penile Low-Intensity Shock Wave Therapy
Available in Cyprus
Most patients suffering from ED respond to the available options for treatment, including oral phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5i) and intracavernosal injections of vasodilating agents. However, these medications are unable to alter the underlying pathophysiology of the erectile mechanism. They are usually taken on demand, prior to the sexual act, and do not improve spontaneous erections. Therefore, a need exists for an effective new treatment concept that would have a durable effect on spontaneous erectile function.
Recently, a promising modality was introduced: the application of low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (LIST) on the penis.
The efficacy of LI-ESWT for ED. This approach was tolerable and effective, suggesting a physiologic impact on corporeal hemodynamics. Its main advantages are the potential to improve erectile function and to contribute to penile rehabilitation without pharmacotherapy.
Unlike conventional ED treatment, such as PDE5 inhibitors, EDSWT does not involve the use of any pharmaceuticals. Moreover, the shock wave treatment causes no side effects or systemic load on other organs and healthy tissues. The non-invasive, painless EDSWT procedure is performed during a series of brief visits to the urology office, and requires no sedation or anesthesia. Discernable improvement in the erectile function of the penis can be visible within two weeks after therapy begins.
Recent clinical studies revealed that patients reported a high rate of satisfaction for more than two years after treatment – all without reliance on PDE5 inhibitors.
LIST is a promising novel therapeutic modality for restoring erectile function in men with vasculogenic ED. It is a safe and nonpainful treatment with a long-lasting effect on erectile function.
LiESWT offers a minimally invasive treatment option for men with Peyronie’s disease who have failed conventional medical therapy and are not keen to undergo surgical intervention. LiESWT appears to be safe, has efficacy in improving penile curvature and pain, and is associated with high level of patient satisfaction rate.
Research: There have been several clinical studies that verify the effectiveness of GAINSWave therapy for the treatment of vascular related ED.
