Erectile dysfunction

ANDROLOGY

Erectile dysfunction

Erection problems can affect men at any age and depend on organic causes of various hormonal, vascular and neurogenic nature. Correct diagnosis is the basis for therapy which, in addition to drugs, uses specific shock waves for the regeneration of vascular tissue. In severe cases, the latest generation prostheses guarantee excellent functional and aesthetic results.

Epidemiology

Erectile dysfunction is the recurrent and persistent inability to have a strong erection sufficient for sexual intercourse. Considering the mild forms, it is estimated that 50% of men suffer from this condition, an incidence that increases over the years.

ANDROLOGY

Causes

Although the causes are age dependent, we divide them into 4 large macro-categories:

In some cases more than one cause coexists.

Diagnosis

The correct diagnosis of erectile dysfunction passes from an exclusion of possible risk factors related to the use of drugs, inflammatory and/or infectious diseases, taking medicines or an incorrect lifestyle.

Subsequently, hormonal causes will be excluded through the hormonal blood dosage and the penile vascular study through the penile and dynamic ecocolor Doppler.

    TREATMENTS

    Treatments for erectile dysfunction

    Treatment is based on the degree of erectile dysfunction reported and the cause of the erectile dysfunction itself.

    If in the past it was plausible to correct the symptom only thanks to the use of pills or in extreme cases to the implant of a penile prosthesis, today we can also evaluate in some cases the cure of the symptom through the use of external stimulation through shock waves (Shock wave therapy or ESWT) which allows vascular regeneration.

    Only in the case of severe erectile dysfunction is the implantation of the latest generation penile prostheses recommended, which allow the immediate recovery of satisfactory and long-lasting erections while maintaining desire and pleasure at the same time.

    Dr. Andrea Cocci

    urologist and andrologist

    The decision to dedicate my professional life to urology and in particular to andrological and reconstructive surgery is the result of a deep passion for anatomy , the art of surgery and in general the diagnostic-therapeutic process which leads to the recovery of the patient. Oncological pathology, infertility, erectile dysfunction, penile diseases or simply prostate disorders irreparably afflict not only the individual but also the couple dimension.
