Vacuum Erection Devices: Role in the Treatment of Erectile Dysfunction and Early Penile Rehabilitation


This study is a good example of the role that vacuum therapy has in improving erection quality and preventing the build up of penile scarring, specifically in those who have received treatment for prostate cancer. It is becoming acknowledged that there is a link between radical prostatectomies and peyronie's disease. This potential side effect of prostate cancer surgery can often be avoided, but rather worryingly does not appear to be widely known, or is not properly conveyed to, or understood by patients.

A great indepth article is featured on the cure peyronie's website detailing this issue. If you know anyone considering prostate surgery, please ensure that they enquire into this, and avoid the burden of peyronie's disease.
