Shock Treatment To Improve Erectile Dysfunction?

Research | Endocrine Research, erectile dysfunction

A recent publication in European Urology suggests that there is overwhelming evidence that using a low-intensity shock treatment (LI-ESWT) can positively impact patients with mild-to-moderate erectile dysfunction.

This is a promising form of therapy that requires more research. For now drugs such as sildenafil (Viagra) and tadalafil (Cialis) remain the mainstay of therapy followed by the use of vacuum pumps, penile injections and when all else fails penile implant surgery.
