Expert Physicians Collaborate in PRP Study for Erectile Dysfunction
Platelet rich plasma proves promising as a treatment modality in Urology
Abstract Study to be presented this week at SMSNA conference in Scottsdale, AZ
November 1st, 2016, Boca Raton, FL -- Erectile 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 study provides an early review of PRP outcomes for ED.
