The Link Between Peyronie's Disease and Erectile Dysfunction

You may find it comforting to know that a high proportion of men suffering from Peyronie's Disease also experience Erectile Dysfunction (ED). While some patients may have had some sexual dysfunction prior to the onset Peyronie's Disease in the majority of cases, their ability to have full erections will diminish as the disease progresses.

There is a direct correlation in both conditions, and both can be treated with Focused ShockWave Therapy (FSWT)

Understanding the Physiology of Erections

In order for a male to have an erection, in the region of 20 times as much blood as normal needs to swiftly flow and be held within the penis. The increased blood flow swells up the penis until it becomes hard and rigid. With both Peyronie's Disease and ED, plaque forms in the blood vessels impeding this flow and preventing a full and satisfying erection.

With Peyronie's Disease this is exacerbated and becomes more pronounced with a lump of plaque generally forming on the side of the penis. As a result, this side of the penis cannot expand as normal and when an erection takes place it results in a bend in the penis.

A beneficial side effect of breaking down the Peyronie's Disease plaque is that it clears and rejuvenates the blood vessels in the penis. So, men undergoing the treatment will not only have a straighter penis but will also have the ability to maintain a stronger and longer lasting erection.

Additional Treatment for ED Sufferers

Peyronie's Disease patients who have also suffered from moderate to severe ED previously may also be prescribed a treatment of shockwave therapy for their ED.

This has two main benefits. The first is in increasing and revitalising the blood vessels within the penis, in what is known as angiogenesis. More blood vessels allow more blood to flow into the penis and enable a stronger erection.

The second effect is the development of new nerve tissues - This is known as Neurogenesis. This increases the sensitivity of the penis, enabling more satisfying and fulfilling intercourse.
