According to statistics erectile dysfunction affects 55 % of the men in the age between 35 and 48 years. Impotence and erectile dysfunction can be caused by chronic stress, anxiety, unhealthy environment and food, lack of sleep, avitaminosis, hypodynamia, alcohol abuse, smoking, atherosclerosis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis and various other congenital and acquired diseases. But it is very important to understand that impotence and erectile dysfunction can be treated.
Ongoing erection problems should always be fully investigated for any underlying medical cause and treated. You should see the Doctor if you have: inability to achieve or maintain erection, short-term erection, constant stress or depression, hypogenitalism, inefficiency or unacceptability of vacuum erectors, endocrine impotence (diabetes), impotence after surgical operations on rectum, prostate gland or urinary bladder, cavernous fibrosis of penis or atherosclerosis of penis.
Surgery with penile implants or penile prosthesis are an important treatment option for men with impotence and erectile dysfunction who have an established medical cause for impotence or erectile dysfunction and fail to respond to nonsurgical treatments and who are motivated to have surgery to improve their impotence or erectile function.
Penile implant surgery is a permanent surgical procedure that cannot be reversed. It is important that men talk to their Doctor about the advantages and possible drawbacks of having the procedure. There are several types of penile implants used in the world, insluding semi-rigid malleable (positionable) rods (non-hydraulic) and inflatable (hydraulic) penile implants.
Prof. Konstantins Kalnberzs here at Premium Medical Clinic uses his fathers’ Dr. Viktors Kalnberza invented and improved penile prosthesis, which is patented in many countries around the world, including the USA, France, Sweden, Germany and the United Kingdom. The penile prosthesis is made out of polyethylene – this is a substance which may be used for an penile implantation.
Mostly all the penile implants are placed in cavernous body of the penis (corpora cavernosa), destroying the natural tissue and leaving no chance for natural erection. The greatest advantage of Dr. Viktors Kalnberzs’s devised prosthesis is that it does not destroy the cavernous body, retaining the remaining natural erection – unlike the hydraulic prosthesis mostly used in the USA.
The first penile implant surgery by Dr. Viktors Kalnberzs was performed in 1963. Prof. Konstantins Kalnberzs at first assisted his father’s surgeries but later started to operate on his own, making a total of about 300 penile implantations or phalloplasty surgeries.
During the surgery, the penile implant is inserted in the penis using a small cut which gives the desired volume and length and passive erection as well as preserving the natural erection. The penile prosthesis does not irritate the genital mucosa neither the man nor for the woman during the sexual intercourse. The stable fixation of penile implant ensures that the tissue is not injured. Since the penile implant is inserted outside the cavernous body (corpora cavernosa) of the penis the natural erection is not impaired and it is possible to return to the natural erection. The surgical intervention has a very good cosmetic effect – the scars can be easily hidden. After the surgery the mobility and genital functions of the penis are preserved. The penile implant retain its function for the rest of the life.
The operation is performed during a relatively small cut in the superficial part of the penis to reduce the traumatisation of the tissue to minimum. Penile prosthetic surgery not only provides men the opportunity for sexual activity, but also allows to regain self-esteem, psychological comfort, capacity and resilience.
