Penile Injections: Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Without Surgery
Erectile dysfunction is the male's inability to have or maintain a satisfactory erection for the sexual act. There are medical and surgical treatments to heal or reverse the dysfunction, aiming to help the patient to keep a healthy sexual life.
Among the non-surgical methods created to solve erectile dysfunction is the intracavernous injection.

It consists of the application of medication inside the corpora cavernosa to produce an erection. It is composed of prostaglandin, phentolamine, papaverine and/or atropine. There can also be a combination between two, three or four medications, resulting in bimix, trimix and quadmix compounds.

It is important to emphasize that if the medication contains prostaglandin, it must be kept in the refrigerator to keep it suitable for use.

Intracavernous injection is indicated for patients who previously used oral medications to solve the dysfunction, but did not obtain the expected results.
Penile Fracture: Can the penis break?

Penile fracture, or penile trauma, is an extremely important issue to men. That is so because if it does happen, it can turn into a more serious problem, like Peyronie's Disease.

The use of skin graft is no longer the best solution for penile reconstruction. One of the many benefits of the Egydio Technique, which has evolved over the last 20 years, is that it is no longer necessary to insert the penile graft. The graft is a tissue used in urology for penile reconstruction. It is usually removed from other parts of the patient's body or from animal’s tissues, such as the submucosa of pigs or bovine pericardium.
