In the treatment of male delicate diseases (for example, erectile dysfunction, Peyronie's disease), urologists successfully use plasma therapy or PRP. This is an injection method involving introduction of the patient's plasma into different parts of the penis. Platelet-rich plasma starts the process of tissue regeneration, improves blood microcirculation and stimulates metabolism.
The procedure is safe and improves the sexual life of men, in particular, it helps to increase the duration of sexual intercourse. As a rule, after treatment with injections, the patient does not have complications. In isolated cases, edema and local hematomas may appear at the injection place.
PRP in the treatment of erectile dysfunction
Urologists include erectile dysfunction to the most common diseases of male sexual health. According to the World Health Organization and the European Association of Urology, about 52% of men aged 40 to 70 years suffer from erectile dysfunction. A disease consists in the inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse.
PRP therapy for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, on average, is carried out about 1 time for 3-4 weeks. Each time, 5-6 injections are carried out in different parts of the penis. Quite often, in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, one injection per 3 procedures is enough for the results to appear.
According to the prescription of the urologist, along with injections in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, the use of other medicines is possible.
PRP in the treatment of Peyronie disease
Peyronie disease is less common – in 0.4-9% of men and more often in the age of 40 to 60 years. The disease consists in lesion of the connective tissue, leading to the formation of fibrotic lesions or plaques that contribute to erectile deformation of the penis (pathological curvature of the penis).
Treatment regimen with plasmotherapy for Peyronie disease lasts 3-4 weeks, 1 time per week, for 1 session, the urologist makes 5-6 injections in different parts of the penis.
Penile plasma therapy is carried out only if medically required. PRP cannot be combined with shock wave and LOD therapy.
After injections, the urologist recommends abstaining from sexual activity for 10-14 days.
