Stem Cell Therapy May Cure Erectile Dysfunction After Prostate Surgery
In a study done by Danish researchers, stem cell therapy restored erectile function in 8 out of 21 men who suffered from erectile dysfunction as a result of prostate surgery.
Fat cells were taken from a patient’s abdomen via liposuction. The cells underwent treatment to become all-purpose stem cells and were then injected into the corpus cavernosum of the penis. In the corpus cavernosum, the stem cells spontaneously changed to nerve and muscle cells, as well as the endothelial cells that line blood vessels.
After six months, 8 of the 21 men reported that they had recovered enough erectile function to be able to have normal sexual intercourse. The results are also reported to have been maintained for a year.
