Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection suitable for sexual intercourse. Erectile dysfunction symptoms might include persistent: Trouble getting an erection, trouble keeping an erection, reduced sexual desire.
Treatment involves surgically placing devices into both sides of the penis. These implants consist of either inflatable or semirigid rods. Inflatable devices allow you to control when and how long you have an erection. The semirigid rods keep your penis firm but bendable. Penile implants are usually not recommended until other methods have been tried first.
