Expert Physicians Collaborate in PRP Study for Erectile Dysfunction

Platelet rich plasma proves promising as a treatment modality in

dysfunction (ED)
is a condition that is not limited to older men,
“About 5 percent of men that are 40 years old have complete erectile
dysfunction, and that number increases to about 15 percent of men at age
70. Mild and moderate erectile dysfunction affects approximately 10
percent of men per decade of life.” While platelet-rich
plasma (PRP)
is not new to medicine, there has been limited clinical
data for its application in the field of sexual medicine, specifically
in conjunction with other forms of ED therapy. That is why expert
physicians, including Joseph Banno, MD, Paul Perito, MD, Gabriel
Antonini MD, and Lisbeth Roy DO, collaborated to provide a clinical
study on the benefits of using PRP to treat ED. This abstract
provides an early review of PRP outcomes for ED.

During a 12-month period lasting from August 2015 and ending August
2016, patients at Midwest Urological Group incorporated PRP to a
medication and vacuum therapy regimen. Patients with active/metastatic
cancer or any blood dyscrasias were excluded. The PRP treatment used the
patient’s own plasma and was administered once to each patient. In order
to assess the change of erectile function, patients completed the
International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) prior to treatment and
at least 4 weeks’ post. One of the expert physicians that lead the
study, Joseph Banno, MD, stated “I’m amazed at how well my patients are
responding to PRP. It’s exciting to offer a safe modality, one without
side effects, for the treatment of sexual dysfunction.”

PRP may revolutionize the way that sexual dysfunction is treated. For
physicians such as Paul Perito, MD, who says “I’m always looking for
innovative solutions for my patients and for the many physician’s I
train. PRP is one of the most promising tools I’ve added in years!” PRP
will transform how conditions such as ED are treated. Research suggests
as the study of this technology continues, PRP therapies may eventually
be able to treat myriad of medical conditions as the benefits will
continue to grow.
