Abstract: To evaluate the efficiency of an energy density of 0.05mj/mm 2 of low intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (Li-ESWT) on erectile dysfunction (ED) patients. A total of 45 ED patients met the inclusion criteria, including 7 PDE5i responders and 38 nonresponders. All the patients have already been delivered 10000 shockwaves of total seven treatment points twice a week for 4 weeks. Simultaneously, questionnaires of International Index of Erectile Function-Erectile Function (IIEF-EF), Erectile Hard Score (EHS… Show more

“…Previous clinical trails showed that Li-ESWT had been tried to use for the management of diabetic complications such as diabetic foot ulcers and diabetic kidney disease (40,41); and for the treatment of diabetic ED, and an increasing body of evidence demonstrated Li-ESWT was of satisfactory efficacy and fewer complications as a novel physical therapy of ED. Wang et al reported that energy flux density (EFD) of 0.05mj/mm 2 of Li-ESWT therapy could turn 71% (27/38) of PDE5is nonresponders to responders and could improve erection hard enough for vaginal penetration at 16th week follow-up (42). In the other study reported by Tsai et al (43), 67.3% of patients (35/52) could achieve an erection hard enough for intercourse under PDE5is medication at the 1-month follow-up after treatment of Li-ESWT and 63.5% (33/52) of patients could maintain the erectile function at the 3-month follow-up.…”

“…LI‐SWT for ED has yet to be approved and applied as standard therapy protocol, as its efficacy is still incompletely defined, leading to some criticism among some experts in the field (Lei et al, 2021; Sokolakis & Hatzichristodoulou, 2019). However, some studies have stated that shock wave therapy for ED is an effective treatment option (Akande et al, 2021; Angulo et al, 2017; Caretta et al, 2021; Clavijo et al, 2017; Lu et al, 2017; Saltzman et al, 2022; Wang et al, 2020; Yao et al, 2022; Yuan et al, 2021). Scientific disagreement of the benefits of shock wave therapy may prompt patients to resort partially or completely to online sources to gain knowledge about LI‐SWT and aid in treatment decision making (Stukus, 2019).…”
