What is Intracavernosal Injection (ICI)?
This is an essentially painless injection of a completely customized mixture of medications that is injected directly into the side of the penis. These medications will cause the blood vessels to dilate to fill the corpus cavernosum to allow the patient to achieve an erection.
Using only FDA approved medications and a customized mixture of medications designed exactly for the patient, tested on you in the office, intracavernosal injections are the most efficient treatment for erectile dysfunction & premature ejaculation.
During your office visit we will do a test dose and your response will be assessed. Based on your response and how long the erection lasts, you will be prescribed a dose that is customized for you. When you receive your medications at home, you will use a syringe exactly like diabetics use to draw up the prescribed amount of medication, put the syringe into an auto-injector and give yourself an injection. The auto-injector makes the process simple and virtually painless. In 3-8 minutes you will have an erection that should last 30-90 minutes.
