Erectile dysfunction is a condition that affects both men and their sexual partners, having a negative impact on the quality of life of individuals. A transient episode of erectile dysfunction is not necessarily significant and can happen to anyone. However, if this is repeated or permanent, the cause and solution should be sought.
PRP treatment (Platelet Rich Plasma), is a novel and safe technique based on the Regenerative Medicine, which involves the application of autologous platelet-leukocyte-rich plasma containing growth factors and thrombin directly to the site of treatment. PRP treatment has been used broadly in several areas of medicine and aesthetics to relieve pain reduce inflammation, initiate healing and of course regeneration and rejuvenation of the tissues. The degranulation of platelets releases the biological factors into the site giving the beneficial effect.
To increase the efficiency of the PRP, Crete Fertility Centre started apply recently a novel technology by enriching and fortifying that with growth factors (Enriched PRP – EnPRP), derived from the own patient’s blood.
The most important benefit of the Enriched PRP – EnPRP is that it contains over 10 times higher concentration of growth factors and cytokines. By this novel technique, we managed to break the billions of platelets and directly get the growth factors and cytokines and inject them to the area suffering (penis, testicles etc). EnPRP is at least 10 times more effective and efficient from the PRP alone and it has a direct and long-lasting effect (6-10 months).
Enriched PRP method for men with P-Shot
Some of the benefits of the Enriched PRP – EnPRP or P-shot on the penis include:
- Increased size
- Improved strength
- Increased sex drive
- Increased circulation for a healthier organ
- Improved effectiveness for complementary therapies such as Viagra or Cialis
- Increased sensation and pleasure
- Increased size by design by varying injection sites
- Proven to work in multiple studies
- No allergic reactions
- No lumpiness
- Minimal pain
- Improvement of the symptoms from Peyronie disease
How is the process done?
- It is performed under local anesthesia or light sedation.
- A small amount of blood is drawn from the hand.
- Following a specific protocol we rupture the platelets are ruptured and directly isolate the growth factors and cytokines (EnPRP), which are injected into the penis
The procedure is done via ultrasound guidance, is safe, non-surgical and takes approximately 20 minutes. It takes about 2-3 months for the full effect to be evident and some patients may need a 2nd or 3rd infusion to achieve the ideal result.
According to the results so far, intra-penile Enriched PRP – EnPRP therapy, which belongs to the growing field of regenerative medicine, is a safe and effective treatment lasting 6-10 months. One maintenance treatment per year is recommended.
In addition, infusions of stem cells derived from the patient’s adipose tissue show a clear improvement in erectile dysfunction (experimental clinical trials). Additionally, in cases of patients with non-obstructive azoospermia, PRP injection into the testes results in a high rate of spermatogenesis and births of healthy children in approximately 11%.
