EECP Improves Erectile Function in Patients with and without Coronary Artery Disease


Enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) is a noninvasive treatment option widely applied in patients with erectile dysfunction (ED). The aim of this study is to review the efficacy of EECP in patients suffering from ED.


PubMed, MEDLINE, Google Scholar, Tripdatabase, Scopus, and Cochrane library databases were searched for articles with the following search terms: enhanced external counterpulsation and erectile dysfunction. No restrictions with respect to study setting, date of publication, and language were imposed.


From an initial set of 208 records, 4 studies were selected after a final review. A total of 177 patients with a mean age of 59.98 years were included in these studies, with 20-35 hours per week of EECP treatment. Three studies used the International Index of Erectile Function questionnaire and one applied a four-item questionnaire and a peak systolic flow measurement. All of these parameters were significantly improved after the EECP treatment.


To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study reviewing the clinical effectiveness of EECP in patients with ED. According to the articles reviewed in this study, an improvement in erectile function after EECP treatment courses has been observed in patients with and without coronary artery disease without any significant adverse effects.

「增強體外反搏治療在 勃起功能障礙 康復中的應用:文獻綜述」


體外反搏治療(EECP)是一種廣泛應用於 勃起功能障礙 (ED)的非侵入性治療方法。本研究的目的是回顧EECP對於患有 勃起功能障礙 的患者的療效。


在PubMed、MEDLINE、Google Scholar、Tripdatabase、Scopus和Cochrane圖書館數據庫中搜索含有以下關鍵詞的文章:體外反搏治療和 勃起功能障礙 (對於研究設置、發表日期和語言並沒有進行限制)。


我們從最初的208篇論文中經過最終審查選擇了4篇研究。這些研究共納入了177名平均年齡為59.98歲的患者,每週接受20-35小時的EECP治療。其中三個研究使用了國際勃起功能指數問卷(International Index of Erectile Function Questionnaire),另一個研究則應用了四項目問卷和峰值收縮期流量測量。所有這些指標在患者接受EECP治療後均顯著改善。


據我們所知,這是首個回顧EECP在 勃起功能障礙 患者中臨床療效的研究。從本研究中回顧的文章中,我們觀察到不論患者有無冠狀動脈疾病,他們於接受EECP治療後勃起功能均有所改善,而且沒有任何顯著的不良反應。
