HEALTHWave shockwave therapy has been proven effective for the treatment of vascular-related Erectile Dysfunction (ED) in multiple clinical studies.
Shockwave treatment of erectile dysfunction
Shockwave therapy for ED is a revolutionary treatment with unprecedented abilities to rehabilitate aging erectile tissue. As men age, as many as 50% experience difficulty with sustaining erections. Measurable, clinical improvement in erectile functioning combined with the long-term improvement in penile hemodynamics following the LI-ESWT treatment, confirm that shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction has the potential to create a higher quality standard of care for men suffering from erectile dysfunction.
Low intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy for erectile dysfunction
In a study of Indian men with vasculogenic ED who previously responded to PDE5i therapy, LI-ESWT exhibited positive, long-term effects for the improvement of erectile function. The tolerability and efficacy of the shockwave therapy, combined with rehabilitative possibilities and long-term benefits make it an attractive, alternative option for men suffering from vasculogenic erectile dysfunction.
Extracorporeal shock wave
therapy for the treatment of Peyronie's Disease
In a 12 week long clinical study, patients with Peyronie’s Disease were studied for their response to shockwave therapy in terms of their VAS score, mean IIEF-5 score, and mean Quality of Life score. In all patients participating in the study, ESWT lead to resolution of pain often experienced during erections by patients having Peyronie’s Disease, enhanced erectile function, and significantly improved scores across VAS, IIEF-5, and Quality of Life.
A 6 month follow-up pilot study in patients with organic erectile dysfunction
Six months after shockwave treatment, most men did not require PDE5-I therapy due to the significant improvements in the rigidity of the penis, duration of their erections, and overall improvement in penile endothelial function. Men in the organic erectile dysfunction study did not report any pain from the shockwave treatments or adverse side effects.
Can low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy improve ED?
In a placebo-controlled study conducted over a five-week period, just under 60% of men suffering from ED experienced positive effects from LI-ESWT. After a 24-week period, 19% of the men in the active group and 23% in the active placebo group were still having intercourse without the need for male enhancement medication. These study results are evidence that shockwave therapy may cure some patients with erectile dysfunction.
Extracorporeal shock wave
therapy in the treatment of erectile dysfunction
An extracorporeal shockwave therapy study currently in-progress shows clinical efficacy and tolerability in patients with erectile dysfunction.
