Israeli Scientists: Solve Erectile Dysfunction with Electric Shock.
By Israel Faxx News Services
A shock wave to your genitalia can be more effective for erectile dysfuncti= on than Viagra or Cialis, a study by Rambam Medical Center in Haifa has fou= nd. Low-energy shock waves can actually reverse the problem, unlike drugs, = which can also require extended therapy, claim the scientists.
Men, worry not: These are very, very low-energy shocks, each delivering rou= ghly 100 bar of pressure. =93We can really reverse erectile problems with t= his," researcher Yoram Vardi, head of the neuro-urology department at Ramba= m Medical Center in Haifa, told the LiveScience Web site.
Taking Viagra or Cialis can help men, but only as long as they take the pil= ls. Rambam's shock-wavetherapy helps patients function without need for med= ication, Vardi told the site.
Their theory began with the knowledge that low-intensity shocks can stimula= te the development of new blood vessels. It was not perhaps that far a reac= h to figure out that such shock waves could help men grow new blood vessels= in their malfunctioning organs. In four-fifths of cases, erectile dysfunct= ion stems from cardiovascular problems.
It is clear that the potential market is vast, despite potential squeamishn= ess for having electricity applied to one's gonads.
The shock is delivered by a device that comfortingly perhaps looks like a c= omputer mouse. The scientists report that even though the trial consisted o= f applying about 300 shocks over three minutes to the penis, the men didn't= complain of side effects or pain. It helped 15 of the 20 testees (Ed. No p= un intended), Vardi said.
Certainly, the drug therapies available to treat erectile dysfunction have = side effects. Men can develop a dependency on Viagra for instance, not to m= ention vision abnormalities, chest pain, nausea and more. Men are cautioned= by the manufacturer itself, Pfizer, not to take the pill if they take nitr= ates, lest their blood pressure suddenly drop to hazardous levels.
Pfizer also warns men that if their resultant erection lasts more than four= hours, they should seek medical help. Cialis has been associated with side= effects that include facial flushing, muscle pain and backache.
