Low Intensity Shockwave – LWST provides a dual outcome related to your penile rehabilitation. Recent research indicates it regenerates stem cell growth in the penile region. Within our patented Peyronie’s treatment program – it plays a dual role in helping break up both concentrated and diffuse plaque plus rehabilitating damaged tissue.
Shock waves are acoustic waves that generate a pressure impulse and that carry energy when propagating through a medium. The degree of focus can be modulated noninvasively, resulting in variable concentration of energy at a desired location . When shock waves are applied to an organ, the focused waves interact with the targeted deep tissues and act as transient micromechanical forces that initiate several biological changes .
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy has been clinically examined and applied in various medical fields. High-intensity shock wave therapy is used for lithotripsy because of its focused mechanical destructive nature. Medium-intensity shock waves have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and are used for treating a wide range of orthopedic conditions, such as nonunion fractures, tendonitis, and bursitis. Low-intensity shock waves probably have angiogenic properties and are used in the management of chronic wounds, peripheral neuropathy, and in cardiac ischemic tissue [1,2,5,6].
When LIST is applied to an organ, the relatively weak yet focused shock waves interact with the targeted deep tissues where they cause mechanical stress and microtrauma, also known as shear stress . This shear force then triggers a chain of events that cause the release of angiogenic factors inducing neovascularization of the affected tissues and enhancing the blood flow. Extrapolation of these findings to ED has led to the assumption that if applied to the corpora cavernosa, LIST could improve penile blood flow and endothelial function by stimulating angiogenesis in the penis . This review summarizes the effect of LIST on erectile tissue as well as the clinical evidence of its effect in patients with vasculogenic ED.
Sonic Waves are high-pressure, low- frequency sound waves, generated by a device outside the body and applied to the affected tissue in a site-specific manner. In Peyronie’s disease, and ED the penile plaque is the target of the shockwaves. The procedure can be performed without sedation.
