    Vacuum Erection Pumps + PDE5i Medications = A Pleasant Combination
    by Stephen Sheehan on Nov 24, 2008 • 10:31 am


    Augmenting PDE5i treatments (i.e. Viagra® or Cialis®) with TIMM Medical Tech‘s ErecAid® vacuum erection device can greatly improve patient satisfaction, according to a new study lead by Dr. Arthur Burnett, Professor of Urology at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
    Burnett says that the study “confirms an earlier trial that many patients can achieve excellent results using ErecAid(R) as an addition to oral PDE5i therapy. Based upon these results, I would encourage physicians treating ED to consider the importance of this approach in their treatment protocols and to discuss this option with their patients.”
    From the press release:
    The phosphodiesterase five inhibitors (PDE5i) such as Viagra(R) and Cialis(R) have become a major resource in the management of ED. Unfortunately, 30-50% of men report inadequate results with these oral medications. When patients fail to respond to the oral medications, physicians are often forced to consider more invasive and more complicated second line agents such as penile injections or urethral suppositories.
    Investigators at four separate study sites evaluated 69 men aged 36 to 82 with ED of diverse etiology who had responded inadequately to PDE5i therapy. Study subjects were allowed to continue use of PDE5i’s but were instructed to use the ErecAid(R) device as an adjunct to their current oral medication. Study subjects were assessed using three validated measurements of erectile function and sexual satisfaction: the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-5), the Sexual Encounter Profile (SEP-2 and SEP-3) and the Global Patient Assessment Scale (GAPS).
    After 4 weeks of supplemental treatment with ErecAid(R), the IIEF-5 score improved substantially from a baseline of 9.0 to 17.6 (p<0.001). Moreover, of the 34 subjects unable to achieve an erection satisfactory for intercourse at baseline (SEP-2 response of "no"), 27 subjects (79%) reported erections satisfactory for intercourse following the addition of ErecAid(R) (p<0.001). Finally, of 42 subjects reporting no or slight response to PDE5i at baseline (GAPS responses of "not at all" or "slightly"), 31 (74%) reported moderate or great improvement (GAPS responses of "moderately" or "greatly") at the end of the 4 week study (p<0.001).

    Having dealt with this one for many years I thank the poster for posting this even though I disagree with the information presented. It is a very blatant expose of the actual lack of effectiveness of the usage of PDE-5 medications (sildenafil citrate/vardenafil/tadalafil) Tadalafil is of the three probably the best because it has other benefits including dialation of arterial structures in the heart and in other locations which in an aging male is a good thing and it is not harmful for a younger person.

    The use of injectable medications such as prostaglandin E-1 and the various mixes including bi-mix, tri-mix and quadmix are far more effective and unless the indivdual with the syringe in their hand is an absolute moron, it will restore full potency to about 90% of all individuals with very low risk. The injections are effective and they are not painful as many would think. The orals are only effective when the condition is mild. In extremely severe cases some individuals are given both drugs together, but these cases are rare. The use of vacuum devices is effective in some cases, but, it is not magic and if you took the same group of test subjects and had them compare injection therapy with the pump and pill combination they will nearly universally grab the syringe. The text of this report also does not mention that the retention of the erection would require what in medicine is called a "constriction ring". There can be problems with the constriction rings as well. This is a great advertisement from a pump manufacturer and not much more in reality. It is however a level of knowledge and technology that is about 30 years old. For education purposes however this is a great posting and I thanks the OP for taking the time to do so.

    I have been using a pump almost daily w/ kegels,and jelq afterwrds, and use cialis "when the time is right". I have also started a med to lower my LDL levels. and interestingly, sometimes I get rock hard without the cialis now. I like to pump and stretch my penis out, it's all ready quite thick and after a session it is quite plump.

    what's best is still having my wife "bitch" about my big dick (after 35 yrs) as I work it into her, and a few minutes later her cumming all over.
