The risk of post operative erectile dysfunction following Prostatectomy is reported between 14-89% and now with the earlier detection rate of prostate cancer in younger men there is a greater emphasis on appropriate management where erectile dysfunction can be a complication of surgery (Hoyland et al 2013)
Vacuum Erection devices (VED) are an attractive option following prostate or penile corrective surgery by increasing blood flow and oxygenation to the penis and tissues to facilitate the natural return of postoperative erections. Medical reports indicate that it is an option with few contraindications requiring no testing or training prior to use and very effective with up to 92% satisfaction rate (Lehrfeld et al 2009) Post surgical use of the Vacuum Erection device is usually started 1 month after surgery and used on a daily basis for 10 minutes per day without constriction bands or rings to help create blood flow into the penis, creating lengthening and girth.
Eurosurgical’s PosTvac vacuum erection pump system is an ideal device for postsurgical training and subsequent full use as an Erectile Vacuum pump where erectile dysfunction is a continued issue. PosTvac can be used without pharmaceutical support such as Viagra or Cialis or can be used as an adjunct to therapeutic drugs where penile rigidity and girth can be improved significantly.
