The beginning of a new era in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction: Shockwave Therapy
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a highly prevalent and disturbing medical problem. It does not only affect the quality of sexual life- it has a much broader impact on males, affecting self-esteem, self- confidence, self-image of poor masculinity, and altogether decreases quality of life. Today, the field of ED is lacking a treatment modality that would have a perspective for restoring erectile function, and hopefully for curing ED. In this respect, Shock Wave therapy is certainly moving in the right direction and moving us forward in the search for a solution for ED. In this new special issue we offer a comprehensive look at the debatable topics discussed in the literature and provide new data that fills in many of the gaps.
