Erectile Dysfunction, also known as impotence among the public; is defined as the failure of the penis to reach the hardness needed for sexual intercourse or the failure of maintaining the hardness. It can be seen in 2 out of every 3 men, especially over the age of 40 in the world.
Erection occurs by charging of two cylindrical shaped islets full of blood vessels named as corpus cavernosum. Every kind of physical disturbance which prevents this charging causes failure of the erection of the penis or failure to maintain the hardness.
Shock waves cause mechanical stress and micro-trauma when they are emitted to an anatomic region in the low density shock therapy. This mechanical stress and micro trauma lead to the occurrence of angiogenic factors. Thus it induces a series of biological reaction which allow the blood flows and triggering of the tissue neovascularization. Thus, shock waves, increased blood flow to the penis and the formation of new vessels, the erection problems of the penis is eliminated.
ED SWT therapy is applied to various parts of the penis and the penis root. 300 shots are performed in each region in each session, with a total of 1.500 shock shots. Application is made to 5 different points of the penis.
The therapy lasts 6 sessions. According to the severity of the disorder, therapy can be completed in 3-10 sessions. Each session take approximately 20 minutes.
No drug, sedation or anesthesia is applied to the patient before the session. At the end of the session, the patient can resume his daily life.
Current non-surgical therapy of erectile dysfunction consists of intracavernosal injections of intravenous vasodilating agents. In these methods, the blood flow is accelerated by increasing the width of the vessel. The disadvantages of these therapy methods are that they cannot eliminate the underlying pathological factors of erectile dysfunction. It is usually used before sexual intercourse and its action time is very limited.
In drug therapies, drugs are taken orally and the active substances mix with the blood. This situation causes the active substances, which need to open the vessels in the penis, to act on the vessels by spreading all over the body. Thus, serious risks emerge for individuals with cardiovascular diseases. In the therapy with Modus ED SWT, focused shock waves only stimulate the blood vessels in the targeted area.
Modus ED SWT therapy with focused shock waves completely eliminates these pathological factors and healing is observed completely even in severely ill patients. Modus ED SWT does not increase vessel width as in other therapy methods, and new vessel formation is achieved. Thus, especially in people with cardiovascular diseases, increased risk of side effects are avoided.
In addition, because Modus ED SWT is a non-invasive therapy method, the patient is not treated surgically. After about 20 minutes of sessions, the patient resumes his daily life.
Any kind of preparation such as sedation are not needed before the therapy. There are not any kind of pain, sting, swelling, empurpling, burning or irritation during or after the process by no means.
