The penis shifts into an erection state at an angle of 90 degrees. The curvature in any direction other than this position is called penile curvature (peyronie).
Penile curvature may be congenital or may occur later for various reasons. The reason for the congenital Peyronie’s disease is that one of the two spongy tissues, which make the penis erect, does not develop and that the penis is turned into this undeveloped side. The later occurrence of penile curvature is usually seen in individuals over the age of 50 years. Peyronie’s disease occurs because of the arthritis between the spongy tissue, which causes the erection of the penis, and the sheath surrounding the tissue. This is seen more in diabetes patients.
As in the therapy of erectile dysfunction (impotence) disorder with Modus ED SWT, shock waves induce the formation of new blood vessels and blood flow in the spongy tissue in the penis by triggering the tissues and cells. Thus, the factors causing the curvature of the penis are eliminated.
We can divide the classical therapy methods of Penile Curvature apart from ED SWT into two groups as Acute Period and Chronic Period Peyronie. Since the plaques that cause penile curvature are not yet fully formed, drug therapy is used in acute period. For this reason, diagnosis is very important in the acute period. When early diagnosis cannot be made, the drug therapies are not very effective when the disease is in the chronic phase. Surgical treatments are required instead. This therapy method does not provide a definite result and is also a risky therapy method. Damage to the vascular and neural structure of the penis during the surgery may result in a complete loss of erection. In order to prevent the stitches in the penis from bursting after surgery, hormone therapy is applied to suppress the erection.
Modus ED SWT does not require any drug or surgical intervention. The device is safely used in a very short period of time and in all disease stages (acute, chronic) without the need for any drugs, sedation and sedatives.
As focused shock waves only affect the focal point in the penis, the neural and vascular structure of the penis is not damaged as in the case of surgical interventions.
In addition, as surgical intervention is not required, especially in individuals who have undergone surgery, there is no undesirable condition like bursting of the stitches.
Shock waves cause mechanical stress and micro-trauma when they are emitted to an anatomic section 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.
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.
