The Future of Treatment: Stem Cell Therapy and PRP Therapy to Treat Erectile Dysfunction
What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Commonly referred to as “impotence”, erectile dysfunction is the inability to get and keep an erection that is firm enough for sexual intercourse. Although having this problem from time to time is not a major cause for concern, erectile dysfunction as an ongoing issue can be cause for much stress, lowered self-esteem and confidence, as well as contribute to relationship problems.
There are many reasons why erectile dysfunction occurs. Since male sexual arousal is a complex process that involves the brain, emotions, hormones, nerves, muscles, and blood vessels, causes of erectile dysfunction can stem from any of these. Stress and even mental health concerns can further worsen erectile dysfunction.
There are also physical causes for erectile dysfunction or impotence, such as heart disease, clogged blood vessels, high cholesterol, and blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, multiple sclerosis, and even tobacco use and alcoholism.
Stem Cell Therapy to help treat Erectile Dysfunction
Stem cell therapy is one of the latest development in treatment for erectile dysfunction. Studies and tests have shown that stem cell therapy proves to be effective for erectile dysfunction that is rooted from various causes, including low testosterone, penile cell tissue damage, and even diabetes.
Studies have also further shown men experiencing erectile dysfunction gain improvement, as well as get healthier, regenerated erectile tissue after receiving the injections. That is because stem cells—specifically mesenchymal stem cells, or MSC’s—naturally regenerate and repair cells of the body, working to replace damaged ones and restoring tissue that has been harmed due to a number of factors and causes.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction
Another approach similar to stem cell therapy, which has also shown progressive results, is called z plasma, or PRP therapy. The procedure involves harvesting blood from a vein, then using a highly-advanced centrifuge to obtain a high concentration of platelets that is multiple times more than the normal amount found in blood. This processed blood is very rich in growth factors, and will then work—after being injected in the penis—through the platelets releasing various growth factors that bring in a supply of stem cells and new blood vessels to the penis, in turn improving erectile dysfunction.
