VENOUS LEAK

DON’T BE FOOLED. Not everyone with a shockwave and PRP is an erection specialist. BUT WE ARE!

Erectile dysfunction (ED)

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a surprisingly common issue, with more than 50% of all men experiencing some form of ED in their lifetime. Yet regardless of how common it might be, it does not prevent the very personal experience of feeling embarrassed, alone or depressed any easier to manage when you experience it.

But you are not alone – we can help you reverse ED, fully restoring & optimizing sexual function, restoring your confidence, maximizing sexual pleasure & erasing your feelings of embarrassment and anxiety.

It is crucial to acknowledge that not all forms of ED are equal; identifying the exact cause of your ED remains fundamental in identifying the most effective treatment plan. One common cause of ED is venous leakage, which forms the focus of this article.

Venous Leakage

If you find that you are experiencing problems sustaining, as opposed to achieving, an erection, are in a younger age group, experience an undiminished libido, &/or have noticed a loss of morning and nocturnal erections, you might be experiencing venous leakage.

 

The great news is that we are primed & ready to help diagnose & treat this issue, offering you a rapid, painless & effective cure. Read on to find out more!

What Causes Venous Leakage?

One common cause of ED, particularly in younger men, &/or men suffering from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, ongoing stress, obesity, or peripheral vascular disease, is venous leakage, a condition where blood vessels in the veins of the penis stop working correctly. When you have an erection, the arteries in the penis are meant to expand, filling the penis with blood, then constricting and trapping the blood inside the penis (a process known as veno-occlusion) to sustain a powerful erection until you orgasm. After orgasm, arteries again widen to allow blood to flow away from the penis, back into the body, leaving you satiated, and sexually satisfied. But when venous leakage occurs, this process cannot occur, making the penis flaccid.

Let’s take a closer look at the science behind the dysfunction.

The Science Behind Venous Leakage

Your penis contains 3 long cylindrical tubes of tissue: the corpus spongiosum and a pair of corpus cavernosum (CC). The CC is housed within a tough outer covering known as the tunica albuginea (albuginea layers constitute a dense layer of tissue that encases your testes and connects to layers of fibers that surround a duct called the epididymis which transports sperm out of the testes and into the penis). The CC constitutes an interconnected network of sinusoidal spaces, surrounded by the CCSM (corpus cavernosum smooth muscle).

Venous Leak

When your penis is flaccid, the CCSM is in a contracted state, where the arterial inflow of blood is minimal (thus no erection occurs).  When your penis is erect, however, the intracavernous pressure (ICP) of the CC increases in response to neuronal stimulation (i.e., sexual stimuli), relaxing the arteries that supply the penis and CCSM and increasing blood flow to the sinusoids. This sinusoid expansion, in turn, compresses your venular plexuses (small veins located in your spermatic cord). Your spermatic cord constitutes an interconnected network of fibers and tissues that form a cord-like structure running from your abdominal region to your testicles, and when compressed, reducing venous outflow, effectively trapping blood in the penis to maintain a hard erection.

If you suffer from veno-occlusive dysfunction (venous leakage), damage to the CC can lead to their inability to expand and relax as they should, a result of insufficient or interrupted sinusoidal relaxation and expansion. This, in turn, disrupts the closure of emissary veins (emissary veins being veins that travel between the inner and outer layers of the tunica, which are compressed during an erection). As a result, albuginea layers become inadequately compressed and venous leak subsequently occurs, with detumescence (the medical term for ‘loss of erection’) sadly occurring. The great news is that this condition is eminently treatable.

Should I Get Checked Out?

You should not suffer in silence; firstly, in the short-term, venous leakage will impact your confidence & sex life, denying you of a vital source of pleasure in your life. Furthermore, sexual dysfunction of any kind can serve as a valuable early indicator or far more serious diseases, so should never be ignored. Finally, venous leakage and other ED’s are highly treatable, so there is no reason to suffer it without seeking help.

If you suffer from an inability to sustain an erection despite maintaining a healthy libido, if you’ve noticed an absence of morning & nocturnal erections, and if you suddenly experiencing flaccidity during sex, particularly if you are in a younger age group, then venous leakage might lie at the root of your sexual dysfunction. In men with diabetes &/or obesity, erectile dysfunction can offer a particularly valuable early warning sign for serious subclinical CVD, coronary artery disease, or atherosclerosis, so don’t ignore warnings – get checked out today.

Regardless of the cause of your ED, you should seek treatment to optimize not only your health but the quality of your life. Don’t let ED rob you of a powerful source of pleasure & intimacy or of your long-term health.

Treating Venous Leakage

The Doctors Studio possesses the medical ability, experience & technology to effectively assist you in the rapid treatment of this debilitating condition. We can use penile doppler imaging (a Penile Duplex Doppler Ultrasound, or PDDU) to study blood flow in & out of your penis, studying the function of your CC arteries when erect & flaccid. Identifying blockages in the arteries or veins that supply the penis, alongside an evaluation of the health of the penis, prostate, testicles, and general pelvic area allows us to gain an intimate understanding of exactly what is causing your ED.

Following the analysis of PDDU data, we can then treat venous leakage using PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapies, low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy, or a combination of other therapies or treatments to restore your sexual function to optimized levels. PRP therapy usually involves the use of the P-Shot (also known as the Priapus Shot), where PRP is extracted from your own body then re-injected into your penis to promote tissue growth. 

Shockwave therapy, another alternative, constitutes an innovative form of therapy that is also routinely used in the treatment of kidney stones and clogged arteries, using shockwaves to improve blood flow to the penis (a process known as neovascularization, meaning the formation of new blood vessels). Shockwave therapy also stimulates growth factors, enhancing tissue growth & repair and stimulating nerve regeneration. It is a quick, painless & non-invasive treatment that takes around 30 minutes.

Microvascular Diagnostics: GlycoCheck

Erections depend upon the function of your microvascular and capillary system. You may look and even feel healthy on the outside, but inside your microvascular system, a completely different situation could be developing.

Organ starvation is one reason that diseases begin in the body. When the capillaries begin to lose their function, vital organs don’t receive the nutrients needed to be healthy and the silent spiral of health decline begins. Often one of the first signs of microvascular disease is a change in erections quality.
