SHOCK WAVE Therapy to cure Erectile Dysfunction
« on: May 24, 2010, 06:02:24 AM »

Sounds promissing (I have tried ECST before - this must be different).


Shock Wave Therapy Found to Relieve Erectile Dysfunction
Jill Stein

January 01 2010LYON, FRANCE

Israeli researchers have reported promising preliminary results using low-intensity shock wave therapy to treat vasculogenic erectile dysfunction (Erectile Dysfunction).

In fact, 15 of 20 patients with mild or moderate Erectile Dysfunction who have been treated thus far had a significant improvement in erectile function and in most cases were able to discontinue treatment with phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitors. There were no reports of pain or other adverse effects.

Yoram Vardi, MD, chief of the neuro-urology unit at Rambam Medical Center in Haifa, presented the findings here at the annual meeting of the European Society for Sexual Medicine.

Low-energy shock wave therapy is being increasingly used to induce regeneration of small coronary vessels in patients with angina who are not suitable for coronary surgery or angioplasty, Dr. Vardi explained.

His group had hypothesized that if the therapy can improve the vasculature of the heart, it might also be effective in the penis because 80% of Erectile Dysfunction cases are of vascular origin.

Participants in the trial had a score of 12 to 20 on the Erectile Function domain of the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-Erectile Dysfunction) and abnormal nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT).  In all cases, Erectile Dysfunction had a vascular origin. The mean duration of Erectile Dysfunction was 35 months.

During each treatment session, low-energy shock wave therapy was applied on the penile shaft and crus for three minutes in each of five anatomical sites. The shock waves were are one-tenth the level of intensity as the shock waves used to pulverize kidney stones.

The men underwent a three-week course of two weekly treatment sessions and a second identical round of therapy starting three weeks later. Erectile function was assessed at the time of enrollment and four weeks after the end of treatment.

“The protocol used to enhance vasculogenesis of the ischemic heart is the same one we used to treat Erectile Dysfunction,” Dr. Vardi said.

Results showed that the IIEF-Erectile Dysfunction score improved by more than five points in 15 patients (75%). Seven of 20 patients (35%) had an improvement of more than 10 points.

Six-month follow-up data show that 12 of the 15 patients who improved significantly with treatment said they no longer needed to use PDE-5 inhibitors to treat their condition.

Scores on several other validated Erectile Dysfunction questionnaires including Quality of Erection Questionnaire, Self-Esteem and Relationship Questionnaire, and Erectile Dysfunction Inventory of Treatment Satisfaction also improved significantly.

The analysis additionally showed a significant improvement in baseline and maximal flow values on a penile endothelial function test.

“We are very excited by our findings but it's important to emphasize that they are preliminary and that further evaluation is needed using sham control and long-term follow-up,” Dr. Vardi said. “And what has been especially gratifying is that patients have told us that they are very pleased with the results and they tell us that they are again having morning erections and that they can perform better.”

It seems to me that their screening process was more of looking for candidates with Erectile Dysfunction. Wo we don't know specifically what the Peyronies Disease symptoms were nor the severity of their Peyronies Disease. If this is a reliable therpay we ned to better understand how it works as I don't believe this would work for all forms of Peyronies Disease.

If it was Erectile Dysfunction due to venous leakage wouldn't increased vasculature make the problem worse?

John  - 

Are you referring to "Electro Shock Therapy?"  I think I would seek out a good Urologist who treats Peyronies Disease and/or Erectile Dysfunction and specializes in Sexual Dysfunction before I would get my brains scrambled!

From your other post, it appears there is nothing wrong with with your head.  Sounds to me like you have a problem with your dick.  When all else fails, then, maybe you could have someone BUZZ you. 

Maybe someone on this forum can advise you better about "Shock Treatment"  However, I believe that most everybody will tell you to see a Dick Doc first.

EST seems to smack of "One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest" and I really don't know how that would help me if I were searching for a solution to a twisted penis.

I read that awhile back. It was the same treatment as they use on kidney stones. But it was 'shockwave' not shock.

Shock Wave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction was published in "Live Science" on November 22, 2009.
http://www.livescience.com/5883-shocking-treatment-helps-erectile-dysfunction.html
They have mentioned in the article that they had 75% success (15 from 20), significant improvement. They also mentioned that they will expand the test.
They are doing it now, results expected by October 2012
http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01274923
If this treatment will solve Erectile Dysfunction and Xiaflex will solve Peyronie's plaque, NO MORE NEED FOR SURGERY?
Maybe I am too optimistic!!!

Every Peyronie's specialist has his own opinion regarding Peyronie's treatments. Including the biggest.
Some are not even ready to hear about Pentox, some are prescribing it as first line treatment and so on, on many subjects.

With research results can't argue to much because they are facts. Let wait and see the results of the expanded trial, hope really October 2012.
