Should I get a 1 Cylinder vs 3 Cylinder device? Please help!
« on: October 07, 2016, 02:53:43 PM »

I'm deciding on which device to buy, and Augusta medical systems has both 1 cylinder and 3 cylinders, but insists that the 3 cylinder is better for Peyronie's (and Old Man, who has been very helpful, says the same). The one cylinder, however, is about $200 less expensive - and, I assume, operates on the same principle, so in theory should also work. There's not much rigorous science behind the differences in these devices, so is it really possible to say that a 3 cylinder is worth the extra $200? I am hesitant since my financial situation is not great. Please guys let me know, I need to get this started immediately!

Thanks

Old Man,

1 cylinder vs 3 cylinder device.  Through the doctor I just received a once cylinder VED to treat Peyronies. After reviewing this form it appears that the whole concept of the 3 cylinders is to have the cylinder(s) compress against the penis and break the scar tissue up. Question: Is this correct? Will the 1 cylinder do the same thing through the vacuum pressure?

cduser:

I sent you an answer to your PM about using the one cylinder. Yes, there is a different approach to using either of the VEDs. You should read through both protocols for the one and three cylinder protocols. Then send me a PM with the questions that arise from your research of these protocols.

Cduser,

I would suggest a three cylinder if possible. I have a one cylinder that my URO gave me and because of how large the cylinder is, it allows for the shaft to bend upward a bit. I have asked my URO at Walter Reed to get me a three cylinder SOMA and I am hoping to get it in January. I think having a cylinder that is closer to your shaft size would be beneficial to stretch the plaque out and not let it angle upward, downward or sideways.
