What are the available methods of penile prosthesis implantation?
The primary reason for considering penile prosthesis implantation is long-term erectile dysfunction which has resisted other forms of treated. We begin treating erectile dysfunction by ruling out psychological factors and problems in other organs of the body which could be the underlying cause of dysfunction – e.g. diabetes, hypertension and atherosclerosis. In case of erectile dysfunction we can apply the so called “virility booster” – an external vacuum pump which supports blood flow into the penis.
Persistent symptoms and lack of treatment effectiveness have resulted in the development of a penile implant which replaces the dysfunctional cavernous bodies in the penis. Implants can be inflatable or non-inflatable. Implanting a penile prosthesis is the most effective way to treat erectile dysfunction.
