Stem Cell for Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is a medical condition in which men cannot get or sustain an erection firm enough to engage in intercourse. It is often a chronic condition that may last for years, or even be lifelong. It is more common in men over the age of 40, however ED also affects other age groups. Roughly 5% of all males 40 years or older have some degree of ED. In men 70 and older, the number increases to approximately 15%, with a corresponding increase of 10% for every additional decade of age. In total, an estimated 30 million men in the United States have erectile dysfunction.
ED can be caused by damage to nerves, blood vessels, connective tissues and smooth muscle, as well as reduced testosterone. Conditions such as heart disease, renal (kidney) diseases, diabetes, alcoholism, vascular disease, neurological diseases, and atherosclerosis account for roughly 70% of all ED cases. The vast majority of ED cases (80%) are related to a reduction in blood flow.
Adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which have the ability to differentiate (change) and multiply into other forms of cells such as blood vessels and other tissues, may offer a promising form of treatment for tissue defects or underlying vascular or nerve disorders. Prior to undergoing stem cell therapy treatment, a comprehensive exam must be performed to determine if you are a good candidate.
