Erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (impotence) is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex. ED could be a primary indicator of cardiovascular illness, indicating that blockages are forming in a man's vascular system. According to certain research, men with ED are at a higher risk of having a heart attack, stroke, or circulation disorders in the legs.


Erectile dysfunction symptoms might include persistent:

  • Trouble getting an erection
  • Trouble keeping an erection
  • Reduced sexual desire Tests and Treatment

Tests for underlying conditions might include:

  • Physical exam.
  • Blood tests.
  • Urine tests (urinalysis).
  • Ultrasound.

Non-invasive treatments are often tried first. Such treatments include:

  • Oral drugs or pills
  • Testosterone Therapy
  • Penile Injections
  • Intraurethral medication
  • Vacuum Erection Devices
  • Penile Implants Surgical Treatment

The main surgical treatment of ED involves insertion of a penile implant (also called penile prostheses). Penile implants are devices that are completely implanted inside your body. They make a stiff penis that allows you to have normal sex.

There are two types of penile implants:

  • Semi rigid Implant (Bendable)
  • Inflatable Implant

While penile vascular surgery is not indicated for elderly males who have failed oral PDE5 inhibitors, ICI, or IU treatments, implants are the next step for these patients.
