According to an article titled, “The Current Status of Stem-Cell Therapy in Erectile Dysfunction: A Review,” approximately 50% of men between the ages of 40 and 70 years have some degree of ED. There are many reasons a man can develop erectile dysfunction. It can be caused by depression, alcohol consumption, different medications, stress and anxiety, and just poor health in general. Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as the inability to attain or maintain an erection satisfactory for their sexual needs. And though the research and development of this process are still in the early stages, the studies have shown that regenerative tissues could help improve erectile function.

A possible solution is available at Advanced Joint Pain Relief and Pain Management Center of Irvine. Those who study platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) and regenerative tissues claim that they are one of the most effective methods of improving ED because they both provide patients with accelerated healing, which helps them return to enjoying the daily activities they love.
The European Association of Urology reports that in a 2017 clinical trial, regenerative tissues were able to restore sufficient erectile function to allow previously impotent men to have spontaneous intercourse. Current remedies, which include medications such as such as Viagra and Cialis, injections, or penile implants; all have some drawbacks, so scientists have been searching to find a way to bring back normal sexual drive. UK-based newspaper The Times reports Danish researchers developed a shot that uses regenerative tissues to help guys with erectile dysfunction.
How it can potential work
According to prostate.net, the procedure of removing regenerative tissues, which is performed on an outpatient basis, takes about three hours and involves injecting the patient’s own regenerative tissues into the erectile tissue (otherwise known as corpus cavernosum). regenerative tissues are harvested from two places: fat tissue using liposuction and bone marrow from the hip. This mixture of cells is then processed through a centrifuge, a device that spins liquid samples at high speeds, creating a strong circular path, which causes the denser materials to travel to the bottom of the centrifuge tube quicker they would under the force of normal gravity (http://www.public.asu.edu).
But, once this process is complete, the regenerative tissues are then injected into the penis using a microneedle. And as much as the idea of having a needle, even a micro one, being jabbed into your penis doesn’t sound too alluring, from beginning to end, the full process involves only local anesthesia and light sedation (https://prostate.net).
While using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) isn’t a new phenomenon, the data for its use in the field of sexual medicine has been lacking, particularly in comparison to other forms of ED therapy. Evidence suggests PRP helps the body’s natural healing process and may aid tissues in the penis to better accept other therapies. And although PRP involves adding a small number of regenerative tissues to the penis, Advanced Joint Pain Relief Injection therapy is the more advanced therapy (https://prostate.net). There is also evidence that men who PRP for ED can possibly see an improvement in their erections for up to 18 months or longer. After that, another injection will be required.
Stem therapy for ED is supposed to be the more long-term choice, though it is also possible to add PRP to Advanced Joint Pain Relief Therapy practice. And like all medical procedures, you should discuss this therapy with your doctor.
