DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "US Market Report for Erectile Dysfunction Devices 2016" report to their offering.
For an erection to occur, blood flows into the penis, causing it to expand and stiffen, which is sparked by impulses from the brain to the genital nerves. ED can be caused when these impulses are blocked or the flow of blood to the penis is restricted. Chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis, kidney disease and multiple sclerosis can be common underlying causes. Certain medications, psychological factors and injuries could also be factors leading to ED.
Treatments for ED include medications, lifestyle changes, injections, surgeries and devices. Common medications prescribed for ED include sildenafil (Viagra®), tadalafil (Cialis®), vardenafil hydrochloride (Levitra®) and avanafil (StendraTM), which are taken orally prior to intercourse.
This group of medications, called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) inhibitors, increase the flow of blood to the penis. It can be dangerous for men to take PDE-5 concurrently with nitrate drugs for heart disease or alpha-blockers for benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). There is a 50% success rate using drug therapy; the remaining 50% of unsuccessful patients may opt to get vasodilators injected into the penis. Other options for when drug therapy options fail include the use of a vacuum device or penile implant surgeries. While the condition is quite common, only approximately 20% of men who experience ED will seek treatment.
ED implantation procedures are performed in outpatient offices and are completed in 1 or 2 hours. Vacuum constriction devices are external devices that use a constriction band or ring to help maintain an erection. They can be preferred over implantation procedures as they are non-invasive.
