Penile injection training

Expert’s Corner


Injection therapy is the most effective pharmacotherapy for erectile dysfunction. Unfortunately, it has been all but forgotten by most practitioners since the advent of the oral therapy. Physicians rarely offer injection therapy as an option, despite the fact that over 6 million men have tried phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors in the United States, and 1.8 million of those men may have failed or been dissatisfied with oral therapy. Patients approached with the possibility of injection therapy fear the pain and concept of penile self-injection. Through a compassionate, supportive educational approach incorporating the physicians and their staffs, injection therapy can be a highly effective treatment for ED patients who have failed oral therapy.
