How to treat impotence with vascular surgery

Impotence is by far one of the most common male sexual problems in the world, and since it has become very famous lately we are going to analyze many existing methods to treat impotence in the best way. First, we are going to start mentioning which methods are currently used to treat impotence all around the world to attack the Erectile dysfunction causes, and then we are going to emphasize in the vascular surgery, also called “impotence surgery”. There are many non-surgical impotence treatments, but in some cases, penile prostheses or reconstructive surgery may be options to treat impotence as well.

Here you have a list of the most commonly used impotence treatments that you can find at the hospital or simply by talking with your doctor about this topic:

1-Psychosexual Therapy: in this male impotence treatment, an experienced counselor can provide therapy to treat impotence by handling your relationships difficulties, performance anxiety or any other psychological problems that might be related to impotence.

2-Vacuum Pumps: these are plastic cylinders placed over the penis to increase blood pressure on it to cause an erection.

3-Medication to treat impotence: this is the number one method used all over the globe as a male impotence treatment, basically because it is the most affordable one and also the most effective, including less side effects on the body as well as it provides comfort by not having to put anything over the penis or inside.

Now, as I said before, we are going to focus on the vascular reconstructive surgery to treat impotence today in this article. This surgery is executed to improve the blood supply of the penis in an effort to improve a man’s ability to obtain and preserve a successful normal erection to have a normal sexual intercourse with his partner. This procedure is technically difficult, expensive and not always effective, so it is not as common as the others, it is actually very rarely performed. Vascular reconstructive surgery of the penis generally engages avoiding blocked arteries by transferring an artery from an abdominal muscle to a penile artery in order to create a trail to the penis that bypasses the blocked area that is inhibiting a normal blood flow to the penis.

As a matter of fact, only a small percentage of men may be candidates for this surgery, particularly young men who suffered from ED as a result of trauma to the penis and adjacent areas, so if you fall into this category, you have to talk to your doctor to see if vascular reconstructive surgery is a suitable way to treat impotence in your situation. Sadly, the long-term results from this type of surgery have been unsatisfactory with even the best of results showing only 1 out of 20 men obtaining improved erections. On the other hand, in younger men who suffered impotence due to a damaged blood vessel caused by any pelvic or genital injury, the success rate for this treatment is privileged, meaning 50%-75%.
