Effective for treatment of:
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Induratio Penis Plastica
- Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome
DUOLITH® SD1 »ultra« is eff ectively applied for the treatment for Erectile Dysfunction (ED) of vascular origin, Induratio Penis Plastica (IPP) and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS). Scientific studies have proven the healing success of focused shockwaves for these indications. The effectiveness of this modern shock wave equipment is determined by the individually selectable, dynamic and powerful energy range and the therapeutic depth of focus that can be chosen.
Deep-lying areas can be treated easily. With its large focus zone it is easy to access these areas with a high degree of accuracy. These technical features also demonstrate the superiority of the treatment in comparison with other ESWT machines: due to the depth of focus, shock waves only have to be applied on one side of the penis.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a sexual dysfunction that is increasingly prevalent with age. Men aff ected by ED are unable to develop or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse despite being sexually stimulated. Most ED cases are of vascular origin. When treating ED with shock wave therapy, low-intensity shockwaves are applied to different treatment zones on the penis and on the perineum.
Induratio Penis Plastica
Induratio penis plastica (IPP), also known as Peyronie’s disease, is an acquired and generally progressive condition of the penis. Most men notice the presence of the disease when they feel thickened nodules (so-called plaques) under the skin of the penis. As the disease progresses, pain may occur with or without an erection and the penis becomes curved during an erection, which can make it diffi cult or impossible to have sexual intercourse. When treating IPP, the pain points in the penis are treated with extracorporeal shock waves.
Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome
Chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) is characterized by pain in the region of the pelvic fl oor. Further symptoms are micturition problems without evidence of urinary tract infection. Some patients experience erectile dysfunction. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is performed using a perineal approach, treating the prostate and the pelvic floor.
