Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve or maintain penile erection long enough for sexual activity. Over 20 million men in the United States suffer from this condition, approximately 19% of male population aged 20 years and older.
At SoHo Men’s Health, we use a medication called Trimix to improve blood vessel circulation in the penis. Trimix is a mixture of three of separate drugs. Scientists have found that Trimix can induce a penile erection when injected directly into the penis especially in situation where medications like Viagra, Cialis, or Levitra do not work to correct erectile dysfunction.
TriMix is administered locally into the penis via injection. TriMix constitutes of three different medications, Papaverine, Phentolamine and Prostaglandin E1, acting together36 to achieve sustained penile erections in individuals suffering from ED. Papaverine is a medication that dilates blood vessels and increases blood flow to the penis causing an erection. Papaverine also interacts with muscles of penis ultimately resulting in increased erectile capacity. Phentolamine is added in combination with Papaverine to increase erectile response. Phentolamine also induces an erection by relaxing and dilating the blood vessels of the penis. As an alpha receptor antagonist, it affects the smooth muscle tone of the penile tissues to achieve an erectile response. Prostaglandin E1 is a potent hormone-like substance that induces erection by relaxing the penis’s blood vessels and dilating cavernosal arteries, allowing more blood into the penis and less blood out.
At Soho Men’s Health, our experienced medical staff design a comprehensive treatment regimen specific to your case that can include oral medications, Prostaglandin E1 (Trimix) injection therapies, hormone replacement, acoustic shock wave therapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection and pelvic floor strengthening with EmSella.
