Stem Cell Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction

  • Erectile Dysfunction is a sexual dysfunction characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual performance.

  • Stem Cell Treatmentst aims to effect the Calcium-sensitive potassium channel and therefore help increase the flow of blood into the Corpus.

STEM CELL TREATMENT ERECTILE DYSFUNCTIONA penile erection is the hydraulic effect of blood entering and being retained in sponge-like bodies within the penis. The process is often initiated as a result of sexual arousal, when signals are transmitted from the brain to nerves in the penis. Erectile dysfunction is indicated when an erection is difficult to produce. There are various circulatory causes, including alteration of the voltage-gated potassium channel, as in arsenic poisoning from drinking water.

The most important organic causes are cardiovascular disease and diabetes, neurological problems (for example, trauma from prostatectomy surgery), hormonal insufficiencies (hypogonadism) and drug side effects.

Psychological impotence is where erection or penetration fails due to thoughts or feelings (psychological reasons) rather than physical impossibility; this is somewhat less frequent but often can be helped. Notably in psychological impotence, there is a strong response to placebo treatment. Erectile dysfunction, tied closely as it is about ideas of physical well being, can have severe psychological consequences.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg. 2018 Dec 26;: Authors: Shauly O, Gould DJ, Patel KM Abstract Erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the most common causes of morbidity in male patients, with a prevalence of 50-60% in men aged 40-70 years. EDs may be caused by physical or psychological trauma, the former of which may be treatable through surgical intervention. Physical trauma may be further categorized as vasculogenic, neurogenic, or idiopathic in nature. Although many patients do not respond well to nonsurgical treatment options, few opt for surgical intervention. This is likely due to the difficulty of the procedures, as well as relatively low historical success rates. As such, a systematic review of the literature was performed to identify novel surgical interventions for ED. A total of 19 manuscripts were included in this review, representing data of three minimally invasive approaches to ED treatment and seven novel surgical techniques. The data revealed compelling evidence in support of microsurgical treatments for ED - namely, microvascular arterial bypass penile revascularization surgery (MABS) and cavernous nerve graft reconstruction. Nerve grafts varied, with the use of end-to-side ilioinguinal, genitofemoral, and sural grafts, all demonstrating high rates of success. Furthermore, minimally invasive botulinum toxin (BoNT-A) treatment and adipose-derived stem cell (ADSC) therapy have shown extreme promise in rat models; with BoNT-A treatment entering phase II human clinical trials this year. Many of the surgical methods investigated in this review are microsurgical interventions that demonstrate high rates of success in patients with neurogenic or vasculogenic ED. As such, microsurgeons are uniquely trained and positioned to be of value to ED treatment. PMID: 30765240 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
