Abstract

While current treatment modalities for erectile dysfunction have become easier to administer and more scientifically based and clinically accepted, they still have their shortcomings such as inconvenience, limited efficacy, and spontaneity. These shortcomings are well recognized in the field, with many investigators exploring improved methods to meet this objective. Broadly speaking, such directions include novel pharmacotherapy, innovative technology, tissue engineering, and creative mechanical approaches. Here we provide an overview of the future of erectile dysfunction treatments.
