There are lots of patients in my office who are seeking for some new modality to handle a severely impacted on men’s health well-being; it’s been called- erectile dysfunctions (ED). It is also known that ED is a consequence of an aging process which is leading to a low quality of small blood vessels and small nerves in the penile tissue. By the way, Thank God for the development of the regenerative medicine currently, that can make us get to know with the Platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

Erectile dysfunction issue always severely affect the one who experience

PRP has been gaining popularity in many fields of regenerative medicine. Men’s health issue also the one among them, PRP will be taken from a patient’s own blood then, spin by the special spinning machine along with a special container. Once the blood is finished spinning process, PRP will be one distinct layer with a yellow serum that very rich in growth factors. All growth factors have been confirmed beneficial on improving ED which I will show as below.

It is even more common for the young male who are seeking for the ED treatment

Directly penile injection with a smallest insulin needle is the best way to bring PRP to the penile tissue with minimal injection site irritation. Site and number of injections will be well constructed by Andrologist. There have been several trials confirmed the frequently ask questions on PRP injection which I will make a short brief as below.

  1. Is PRP injection really improves ED?
    • Yes, it is
    • Only 1 session of PRP injection will show clinical improvement at 4 weeks after treatment
    • The more session of injection, the more clinical improvement can be prospected
    • Dramatically improved on ED when using in combination with low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT)
  2. Any complication should be concerned from PRP?
    • No serious complication was reported
    • Penile bruising was reported around 40% which will be resolved by itself
    • Good news is no patients were reported on ED getting worse after PRP injection. This means it might be really good try for anyone who are seeking for an alternative modality
