Facing the issue of erectile dysfunction, many men experience a false sense of shame and do not rush to seek help from healthcare professionals. They start looking for information on the Internet, receiving unreliable and sometimes charlatan recommendations, spend large amounts of money on questionable medications. At best, such drugs will bring a short-term improvement. At worst, men can get severe or irreversible complications, deterioration of the general condition or develop comorbidities.
However, even the use of widely known and recognized means to stabilize sexual vigour gives a short-term result, does not lead to a long-term effect, relieving the symptoms of the disorder, and not eliminating the cause of the disease.
First-line therapy – the use of PDE5 selective inhibitors
Drug therapy. The most commonly used medicinal products are Sildenafil (Viagra) and Tadalafil (Cialis). The PDE-5 enzyme hydrolyses cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) in the cavernous tissue of the penis. PDE5 inhibition with these agents leads to a relaxation of smooth muscles with an increase in the arterial inflow, which causes compression of the adrenal venous plexus and the development of an erection.
Taken immediately before intercourse, these drugs have a short-term effect and have a number of side effects, such as: headache, redness of the face, itchy skin of the nose, muscle pain, diarrhoea. Also, they should not be taken with certain types of drugs (e.g., nitroglycerin, alpha-adrenoblockers). Their uncontrolled use can lead to severe or even life-threatening complications.
The cost of the drug is EUR 5 per tablet, which should be taken before each intercourse. Regardless of the duration of the course of treatment, it relieves the symptoms of erectile dysfunction for a single time, and does not have a therapeutic effect.
Second-line therapy – intracavernous and intraurethral administration of vasoactive (vascular) medicinal products.
When the first-line medicinal product have proven to be ineffective, healthcare professionals suggest the use of intracavernous injections. Alprostadil is recognized as the most widely used agent, providing an effective result in 85 % of cases. Patients can administer the medicinal product unassisted once they complete the training course for the proper use of the drug. Frequent side effects and complications include pain in the penis, sometimes there is prolonged erection, priapism, and fibrosis.
The cost of a single dose of the drug is EUR 10-15. Specialized medical consultations and a training program for the administration of the drug will cost close to EUR 30 per visit, and at least two of those are required. Injections should be administered before each sexual intercourse, helping achieve a one-time short-term erection. The long-term administration of this agent does not provide a therapeutic effect, temporarily relieving the symptoms of erectile dysfunction, and can lead to serious complications and surgical intervention.
Third-line therapy – surgical repair of penile arteries
In complicated cases, when the previous lines of therapy did not bring the desired outcome, it is possible to consider surgical penile implantation, which can be of two types: flexible and inflatable. One implant costs up to EUR 7,000, the price of surgery is at least EUR 3,000. In total, the whole procedure will cost the patient close to EUR 10,000.
These treatment methods are either short-term or expensive, do not eliminate the cause of the disease, and have a number of serious side effects.
