Content: The treatment of organically induced erectile dysfunction has mostly focused on managing the symptoms (with PDE5i) rather than treating the dysfunction. However, it seems that we are moving into a new era, that of regenerative therapies. Today there is increased clinical interest in employing regenerative therapies, including low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (Li-ESWT), platelet rich plasma (PRP), and stem cell therapy (SCT), in the treatment of ED. But still, clinicians are often confused as to what they can expect from these treatments. Dimitris Hatzichristou is a Professor of Urology and with his team they have been studying regenerative treatments for about 10 years. Specifically, with his team, they implemented many studies trying to find which is the best way to apply shock wave therapy and what kind of improvement one could expect. In addition, recently, he published the only randomized placebo-controlled study in order to assess the efficacy of PRP treatment for ED. These treatments are very frequently used in clinical practice, but not always in ways that conform with the available data. Triggered by two very recent publications*, Dimitris Hatzichristou shares key knowledge that stems from some of the most well conducted research studies. As professionals and patients often require a good understanding of what these treatments can do, this talk provides distilled information about why regenerative therapies are a game changer, what the most important clinical findings are and also how this knowledge applies to clinical practice.
