Increased feelings of pleasure with improved sexual performance and a drastic reduction in penile curvature in case of deformity. These are the results achieved from the procedure with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and plastic induratio, which was developed in the US and now arrives in Italy.
“The PRP therapy gives strength to all those people who, for various reasons, no longer respond to treatment with inhibitors of phosphodiesterase type 5: the famous love pills. Some patients have also reported an increase in length and circumference of the penis and of the sexual desire“ says Gabriele Antonini, urologist-andrologist of Rome, who collaborated with colleagues Joseph Banno in Chicago and Paul Perito in Miami. The PRP has been successfully used for several years in orthopedics and sports medicine and has quickly became one of the most effective methods of treatment for erectile dysfunction and penis plastic induratio or Peyronie’s disease
in the United States.
“The human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself. The regeneration of a fabric is obtained with the natural production of stem cells – recalls Antonini – The PRP provides for the application of concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins that release growth factors to stimulate cell regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. “
The treatment starts with a simple blood sample placed in a centrifuge which separates plasma and platelets from the rest of the blood. “The plasma, enriched with highly concentrated platelets, is collected in small syringes and injected into damaged tissue again. The Priapus shot is a procedure performed on an outpatient basis by locally applying a simple anesthetic cream before injection, without any discomfort during the treatment.“ says the urologist.
“In the United States, more than 60,000 PRP procedures were performed with no side effects or complications. In Italy, it was approved by the Ministry of Health,” he continues. “The growth factors stimulate the regeneration of new tissue in the corpora cavernosa, the growth of new blood vessels and, therefore, improving circulation within the penis – said Antonini – The results consist in stronger erections, increased feelings of pleasure. Many of these benefits are immediate after the injection. This treatment is hypoallergenic and free of side effects – he concludes – because it uses and reinfonde the plasma of the same person”.
