The CaverStem™ stem cell procedure, for patients with erectile dysfunction who are resistant to the use of PDE5 inhibitors, such as Viagra, will be revealed.
The process is done by extracting bone marrow from the patient and then separating out the stem cells.
The stem cells are then put back into the corpus cavernosa of the patient’s penis. Both clinical studies to date demonstrated safety and efficacy.
Treating erectile dysfunction with stem cells
“Since beginning commercialization of our patented and tested CaverStem™ procedure in November 2017, we have received positive responses from the urology community in the limited cities marketed,” says Created Medical Technology Holdings, Inc. CEO Timothy Warbington.
“We anticipate the introduction of our technology to attendees of the largest annual urology conference, to promote nationwide interest in CaverStem™.”
Viagra as a first choice for erectile dysfunction
For men with erectile dysfunction who can’t take Viagra for some reason, the CaverStem procedure could be a saving grace.
But for most men, Viagra will still be their first choice. Viagra works for more than 80% of men and is safe for most men.
The pain associated with extracting bone marrow and injecting cells into the penis will deter many, which is why Viagra will remain the most popular treatment option.
However, if Viagra is ineffective, the new treatment could provide relief.
Interested in Viagra?
Because Viagra can affect the way other medications work, it’s vital that you talk to your doctor about other drugs you take, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medicines, supplements and illegal drugs.
This is especially true with alpha-blockers, other erectile dysfunction medications, oral antifungals, HIVE protease inhibitors, antibiotics and treatments for high blood pressure.
