London, Jan 12 (ANI): Scientists have developed a shockwave device to cure male impotence.
Promising no side effects, the treatment was originally used to break up kidney stones. But now it has shown promise in transforming the love lives of millions of men.
The hand-held gadget uses high frequency sound waves to widen narrowed blood vessels in the penis responsible for causing erection problems, reports The Daily Express.
The research was carried out by Israeli doctors and could be widely available within 18 months.
Doctors at the Technion University and Rambam Medical Centre in Haifa have carried out an initial trial of the sound wave device, with very promising results.
The research will be presented at a recent meeting of the European Society of Sexual Medicine.
Dr Yoram Vardi, who led the trial, said: "These are exciting results. It is now eight months since the men had their last treatment and all report that their love lives are prospering without drugs." (ANI)
