Minnesota based medical technology company Medtronic has revealed that recent trials have shown its drug-eluting stent can help people with erectile dysfunction who do not respond well to other treatments.
Dr Jason Rogers of UC Davis Medical Center led the study testing the effectiveness of the stent and involved around 30 participants.
AdvertisementThe stent, coated with zotarolimus, was positioned in the internal pudendal artery which is responsible for the blood flow to the penis.
Announcing the results of the study at the VIVA 11 conference in Las Vegas, Dr Rogers said that the stent improved the blood flow to the penis by opening up the blood vessel and all of the participants showed improvements on the Index of Erectile Dysfunction scale without any adverse effects.
