Abstract

The study was aimed to evaluation of the effectiveness of vibromagnitic lazer therapy (VMLT) of erectile dysfunction (ED) in patients with chronic prostatitis (CP). The study included 40 patients with CP, aged 22 to 45 years. CP duration ranged from 6 months to 9 years, ED--from 6 months to 7 years. All the patients underwent a survey on "Chart of sexological examination of man" with the calculation of sex constitution index, an transrectal ultrasonography of prostate gland (PG), uroflowmetry, clinical and functional assessment of components of the copulatory interval, and assessment of blood plasma concentrations of peptide and steroid hormones. All patients underwent a psychotherapeutic correction of sexual disadaptation, sex therapy using Masters-Johnson, Kaplan, and Lo Piccolo methods, and VMLT using "Matrix-Urologist" device. The control group included 20 healthy men aged 22 to 45 years. All studies were performed Before and 30 days after the end of the last VMLT session. As a result of the treatment, integral IIEF indicators were normalized in 60% of patients, the volume of the prostate--in 70%, hemodynamics in the phase of relaxation and erection--in 70%, venous blood flow in the PG--in 70%, dorsal artery hemodynamics in the phase of relaxation and erection--in 60%, and penile hemodynamics--in 60% of patients. Voiding bladder function was optimized in 75% of patients. The functional activity of the pituitary-adrenal-testicular system returned to normal level in 60% of patients. 1 year after treatment, sexual function was maintained at attained levels in 47.5% of patients. As a matter of findings, it was concluded that VMLT is high effective method of combined non-pharmacological correction of erectile dysfunction in CP patients with strong and medium sex constitution.
