Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined by the NIH as the inability to maintain a penile erection sufficient for successful penetration. It is a prevailing health problem that can seriously impact the quality of life for both partners in an intimate relationship. The etiology may be psychogenic, organic, or mixed. Organic ED may be of a neurogenic, vasculogenic, hormonal, intra-cavernosal (structural), or drug-induced origin. Damage to nerves, arteries, smooth muscles, and fibrous tissues, often as a result of a disease, is the most common cause of erectile penile dysfunction. Diseases such as diabetes, kidney disease, chronic alcoholism, multiple sclerosis, atherosclerosis, vascular disease, and neurologic disease, account for about 70 percent of erectile dysfunction cases. Between 35 and 50 percent of men with diabetes, experience erectile dysfunction.
Physiologically, an erection is achieved through the release of nitric oxide (NO) from parasympathetic nerve terminals. NO causes relaxation of cavernosal smooth muscle leading to increased blood flow. Thus, conditions capable of reducing NO release and/or restricting penile blood flow can result in ED.
Stem cell therapy for erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the newest treatment options. These cells function as regenerative and repair cells in our bodies, replacing damaged cells and repairing injured tissues. Experts report that stem cell therapy appears to be effective for ED from various causes, including low testosterone, penile cell tissue damage, and diabetes, among others.
Dozens of studies of stem cell therapy for ED have shown that men experience an improvement in erectile function after receiving the injections as well as healthier, regenerated erectile tissue. Thatís because stem cells (mesenchymal stem cells, MSCs) naturally regenerate and repair cells of the body, replacing damaged ones and restoring tissue that has been harmed.
The procedure, which is performed on an outpatient basis, takes about two hours and involves injecting the patient with Wharton jelly MSC from the umbilical cord tissue and platelet rich plasma (PRP) into the corpus cavernosum.
This MSC express low levels of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I and no MHC class II in their undifferentiated state, making them minimally immunogenic
The entire process from start to finish requires only local anesthesia and light sedation.
Men who undergo stem cell therapy for erectile dysfunction report little post-procedural pain or discomfort. Common side effects include slight swelling, redness or bruising for 12 to 24 hours. Improvement in erectile function typically is noticeable in as little as two to four weeks, and improvement continues to improve for 6 to 12 months following the procedure
