Progressive Men’s Health of Langhorne, PA offers men a way to treat the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. With the use of regenerative medicine, Dr. Richard M. Goldfarb and Dr. Peter Sinaiko provide shockwave therapy to restore normal function for spontaneous erections.

For many men, traditional medications for ED do not work or decrease in effectiveness with prolonged use. Some patients find the use of medication limiting, decreasing spontaneity in their sex lives. Our shockwave therapy can offer an alternative solution to traditional erectile dysfunction medications also known as Phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor drugs.

PDE5 Inhibitors Drugs after MI

For men who need an extra boost after shockwave treatment, PDE5 inhibitor drugs may be used to boost erectile function. The use of these drugs has been somewhat controversial in patients who have experienced any myocardial infarctions. A recent study out of Sweden shows PDE5 inhibitors are safe for men to use after experiencing myocardial infarctions. This is especially good news for our mature patients who find a combination of treatments most effective.

Daniel Andersson, MD PhD of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm reported on the study at the American College of Cardiology in Washington DC. He noted the study found that patients taking PDE5 inhibitors following a myocardial infarction had better survival rates than those who did not. The study also found a 40% reduction in heart failure and less negative cardiovascular events in men taking PDE5 medications post-MI.

For some of our mature patients, PDE5 inhibitors have been known to increase in effectiveness after shockwave therapy. Our innovative treatment stimulates the body’s natural healing response and can restore the physiological and anatomical effects of erectile dysfunction. Shockwave therapy can regenerate the spontaneity and functional use of the penis. Older patients often find the benefit of the added assistance of the PDE5 inhibitors for a more rigid erection.
