Erectile Dysfunction, or ED, is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection that is sufficient for sexual intercourse. ED is the most common sexual disorder or sexual health issue among men. In fact, approximately 150 million men worldwide have some form of ED (sometimes called impotence).
Erectile Dysfunction is a common condition. It can be progressive.
Dealing with Erectile Dysfunction (or ED) can be challenging or difficult not only for men who have the condition (sometimes called impotence'), but also for their partners.
Conﬁdence matters —
The penile implant option
Many men with erectile dysfunction fail to achieve
Consistent satisfactory results with drug regimens,
Injection therapy and other treatment options. In
fact, 70 percent of men drop out of injection therapy
treatments within one year.
For these men, there is hope.
Penile implants have been an excellent surgical
option for the past 30 years.
Even in the face of less-invasive therapies, the penile prosthesis remains a viable and positive treatment option for patients seeking solutions beyond pills and injections.
Patient satisfaction can be a complicated issue.
However, a recent clinical study illustrated that penile prosthesis implantation has the highest satisfaction rates in comparison with pills or injection therapy for
the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
95 percent of Erectile Dysfunction cases can be treated2
Up to 80 percent of all ED cases may be due to physical causes
ED can be the first symptom of an underlying condition, such as heart disease or diabetes, where early detection and treatment are important
