Erectile dysfunction (ED), a common and frequently occurring disease, threatens the sexual well-being of middle-aged and old men. In recent years, micro-energy therapies, represented by low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (Li-ESWT), is proved by long-term multicenter randomized controlled studies to be safe and effective for the treatment of ED. Compared with traditional treatment, this method has the characteristics of few adverse effects, little trauma and thorough treatment. Recently, studies on its mechanisms have aroused the interest of scientists. We collected the results of representative studies at home and abroad since the birth of Li-ESWT for ED and reviewed the mechanisms of this strategy in the treatment of mild and moderate ED, hoping to contribute to the study of the mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of male sexual dysfunction.
