A study I found on PubMed

I don’t know if this one has been discussed here before, but I just dug this up on PubMed. I’ll probably copy the whole article from the university library this weekend.

Treating erectile dysfunction with a vacuum tumescence device: a retrospective analysis of acceptance and satisfaction.

Baltaci S, Aydos K, Kosar A, Anafarta K.

Department of Urology, Ankara University School of Medicine, Turkey.

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the quality of erections, ability to perform sexual intercourse, incidence of complications and satisfaction of patients using an external vacuum erection device in the treatment of erectile failure. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Of the 61 impotent men who participated in this clinical trial, 49 used the device and were surveyed. The mean follow-up period was 12.8 months. A subjective rating scale from 1 to 10 was used to assess the patients’ satisfaction with the device, where 1 indicated ‘dissatisfied’ and 10 indicated ‘very satisfied’. RESULTS: The ease of using the device, satisfaction with the quality of erections and ability to perform intercourse were given scores > 5 by 88, 84 and 82% of the patients, respectively. Sixteen (33%) of the men withdrew from the trial, primarily because they were unable to achieve and maintain a full erection, or suffered conflicts in their relationship, or for reasons not related to the device. Overall, the effectiveness rate was 67%. Of 32 patients with arteriogenic impotence, 28 (88%) had satisfactory results and had an improvement in their capacity for spontaneous erections with the device. The most frequent adverse effects were blocked ejaculation, bruising or the development of ecchymosis, discomfort during pumping and discomfort from using the constriction bands. CONCLUSION: These results suggest that the vacuum device is an effective and safe treatment for impotence of various aetiologies, especially for those patients with arteriogenic impotence.

The use of an external vacuum device to augment a penile prosthesis.

Soderdahl DW, Petroski RA, Mode D, Schwartz BF, Thrasher JB.

Department of Surgery, Madigan Army Medical Center, Tacoma, Washington 98431, USA.

Although penile prostheses are highly effective in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, a small percentage of patients are dissatisfied. Serendipitously, a patient in this group found that using an external vacuum device to augment his prosthetic erection provided a dramatic objective improvement in his erection and increased his overall satisfaction with intercourse. Patients who had tried the combination of external vacuum device and penile prosthesis simultaneously were identified from our penile prosthesis population as well as the Osbon Medical Systems database. Telephone interviews were conducted to determine efficacy, satisfaction, and side effects from the combination. Twelve patients completed the telephone survey. Four patients had semirigid and eight had inflatable penile prostheses. After using the vacuum device to augment the erection, all reported increased rigidity and patient/partner satisfaction, and 11 of 12 described improved length and girth. Minimal complications were noted. Concomitant use of an external vacuum device and penile prosthesis was safe in this select population. The combination may be indicated in patients with penile prostheses who are dissatisfied with size and/or rigidity, and in those who refuse or who are poor candidates for prosthesis revision.

The second one documents an increase in erection size! I wonder what other “non-existant” evidence for the effectiveness of PE might turn up in the literature? I found this one in about 5 minutes……

Remember, this study involved men with severe erectile problems - not the “Average Joe.” The described “improved length and girth” may well have been a reclamation of lost size (due to E.D.); it does not indicate whatsoever that this “increase” was an increase over their best size ever. Just like when I began PE, my size had shrunk from 6.5” BPEL (in my youth) to about 6.12” BPEL (at 37). So, when I reached 6.37” did I really “increase” by a quarter inch? Not if you consider the 6.5” I used to have. Now that I’m just over 7.2” BPEL, I’ve been saying I’ve gained an inch EL - though not exactly (only about 0.7” above my best ever) - but I did gain 1” EG.

Wadzilla is on the money. Most had severe ED.

However, these two studies do point out a couple of interesting factors: Urologists are recognizing pumps as a means of augmenting erectile function and most who use them seem to stick with their programs.

The increase in the quality and quantity of nocturnal erections via pumping was not addressed (or I didn’t see it). These erections probably give us more sexual stamina than any other events, including sexual erections.
