Various clinical studies on erectile dysfunction demonstrated a significant improvement in perfusion and the formation of new vessels which is crucial for a high level of patient acceptance and a successful application.
In general, 5 to 8 treatments are needed to ensure a successful application. A positive change and a longer or stronger erection is often reported after just the first application.
Shockwave treatment for erectile dysfunction is successful as a stand-alone application and can also be used in combination with other forms of treatment. Shockwave treatment can therefore be successfully combined with PRP applications, vacuum pumps or also PDE-5 inhibitors (vasodilators), among others.
The application is also virtually painless and has no known adverse effects.
What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) means that erection of the male penis does not occur at all, is maintained only briefly, or is not strong enough to allow sexual intercourse.
If one of the above situations is present for more than 4-6 months, this is referred to as erectile dysfunction.
For a long time, it was assumed that most cases of erectile dysfunction have purely psychological causes. Today it is known that physical causes such as age, diabetes mellitus, arteriosclerosis and vascular anomalies account for more than 2/3 of cases. One out of every three men aged 60 to 70 is affected, for example. Experts assume that the number of men affected is much larger, since this topic is still associated with a great deal of shame.
