Acoustic Pressure Wave Therapy
The new standard of care for men with vasculogenic ED.
Acoustic Pressure Wave Therapy (APWT) is a novel modality that has recently been developed for treating erectile dysfunction (ED). Unlike other current treatment options for ED, APWT is unique in that it aims to restore the erectile mechanism in order to enable natural or spontaneous erections.
Results from basic science experiments and actual clinical trials have provided evidence that APWT induces cellular microtrauma, which in turn stimulates the release of angiogenic factors and the subsequent neovascularization of the treated tissue. Basically, this process helps the body regenerate new stem cells at the vascular level and helping to increase blood flow to the vital areas.
Acoustic Pressure Wave Therapy (APWT) has been clinically investigated and applied in several medical fields with various degrees of success. High-intensity shock wave therapy is used for lithotripsy because of its focused mechanical destructive nature, and medium-intensity shock waves have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and are used for treating a wide array of orthopedic conditions, such as non-union fractures, tendonitis, and bursitis.
As a result of using Acoustic Pressure Wave Therapy (APWT), significant improvements of erectile function and a significant improvement in penile hemodynamics have been achieved without any adverse effects.
