What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is a medical condition marked by the inability of a male to achieve or maintain an erection during sexual intercourse. Also referred to as impotence, the condition is triggered by the alleviated blood supply to the penis due to stress, hypertension or any other reason. In some cases, it might also be a symptom of an underlying medical condition that needs immediate medical attention. Some of the common causes of erectile dysfunction include:

  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Obesity
  • Peyronie's disease
  • Renal ailments
  • Sleep disorders
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Smoking and use of other tobacco products
  • Pelvic injury or trauma

Erectile dysfunction is a common problem that can affect males of any age group and is often accompanied by a reduced interest in sex. While it is normal to experience the symptoms associated with erectile dysfunction once in a while, however, if you continue to experience these for more than 6 months, it surely is a cause of concern.
Things you need to know

  • Surgery will only be recommended if other treatment options fail to work.
  • The surgery takes anywhere between 45 minutes to an hour.

 How to prepare for the treatment? 

  • You will be required to undergo certain tests and screenings to evaluate and assess your overall health
  • You need to discuss your expectations with your doctor as this will help them to curate a proper treatment plan.
  • You need to inform your doctor about any medications that you have been taken as you might be required to stop taking these
  • You need to refrain from using blood-thinning medicines like aspirin
  • You are required to fast, starting at least 12 hours prior to the surgery.

Procedure involved

  • The surgical procedure is performed under the influence of general anaesthesia or spinal anaesthesia.
  • A catheter will be inserted in your bladder via the penis so as to collect urine during the surgery.
  • Throughout the surgery, you will be given IV antibiotics to alleviate the risks of infection.
  • The surgeon will stretch the spongy tissue present inside the corpora cavernosa.
  • The cylindrical implant is carefully placed inside the penis. These are usually customized, adhering to the specific needs of the patient.
  • In case you have opted for a two-piece inflatable device, a pump and valve are surgically placed within the scrotum
  • If the case of three-piece inflatable device, a fluid reservoir will be placed beneath the abdominal wall via an internal incision
  • Once the device has been positioned correctly, the wound is sealed and covered.

What to expect after the procedure? 

  • You are likely to feel slight pain and discomfort, which is quite normal and can be easily taken care of with the help of simple medication
  • You might be required to keep your penis up, i.e., pointing towards the belly button, so as to prevent inverted curvature
  • You need to refrain from indulging in any kind of strenuous activity, including sex, for about 6 weeks following the surgery.
  • Potential risks that you need to look out for
  • Bleeding
  • Scarring
  • Need for another surgery
