Vasculogenic Erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the main causes of male sexual dysfunction. Several treatments exist to improve the quality of the erection, but the management of the cardiovascular factors is essential to hope a recovery of the erectile function. Recently, several studies have examined the use of low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (Li-ESWT) to improve vascular and endothelial factors involved in the mechanisms of erection. This article aims to take stock of this potential new therapeutic option.
