Erectile dysfunction and stem cell therapy

Erectile dysfunction (Erectile dysfunction) is defined as the inability of the penis to reach sufficient firmness for sexual intercourse for at least 6 months or to maintain its firmness until sexual intercourse is terminated. It may occur due to physiological and/or psychological reasons. About 50% of men aged 40 to 70 may experience erectile dysfunction, and approximately 15% of men with this problem do not respond to first and second-line treatments (oral treatments, penile injections, ESWT). There is only one option left for patients in this situation, which is penile prosthesis implantation surgery. However, with Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) Stem Cell therapy, which has been increasingly used in many branches in recent years, penile prostheses are no longer the only treatment option for patients with severe erectile dysfunction. 50-100 cc of adipose tissue taken from the abdomen of the patients is passed through a special kit and a fluid containing mesenchymal stem cells and rich in growth factors is obtained. This fluid is called the Stromal Vascular Fraction. This liquid obtained is injected into the cavernosal structures in the penis that are involved in erection. Thanks to SVF, new vessel formation is triggered and a significant improvement is observed within 6 months after the treatment. However, this period can sometimes take 9-12 months. Successful results can be obtained with SVF Stem Cell therapy in patients with advanced erectile dysfunction.
