What bothers Czech men? In recent years, infertility has increased and the number of men suffering from erectile dysfunction as a result of illness or injury has also increased. Fortunately, in both of these areas, medicine is moving forward quickly, so you don’t have to despair, a solution can be found for everyone.
Every fifth couple struggles with infertility in the Czech Republic. Men are responsible for the inability to count offspring in the same percentage of cases as women. A common cause of their infertility is the so-called varicocele (dilation of the testicular veins), which causes pain, infertility and a decrease in the levels of male hormones. It must be surgically removed. Until now, it was performed laparoscopically, now a special operating microscope is mainly used. “The most safe and reliable procedure is microsurgery of the varicocele requiring an operating microscope. We have this microscope at the ISCARE clinic, where it is possible to undergo the procedure,” said MUDr. Lukáš Bittner, Chief Physician from the Andrology Department of ISCARE.
Microsurgical minimizes the chance of damage to the testicular and nerve supply vessels, which significantly reduces the number of postoperative complications. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. The operating time for a unilateral varicocele is about 90 minutes. During the operation, the dilated veins are ligated and interrupted under a microscope; already 5 hours after the operation, the patient is able to leave the clinic with an escort. Improvement of spermiogram parameters after varicocele surgery occurs in 80% of patients.
How about erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) does not directly endanger the patient’s health, but it can significantly worsen the quality of his personal life and can also be a warning signal for an underlying serious illness. The most common cause of ED is a vascular disorder, usually due to long-term high blood pressure, diabetes, or high blood fat levels. Treatment for prostate cancer and injuries are also common causes. Penile implant treatment is intended for all patients suffering from erectile dysfunction who are not treated by conventional therapy with tablets or injections into the axillary bodies.
Penile implants are now a common part of treatment abroad, with around 2,000 such operations performed annually worldwide. At the ISCARE clinic, which is the only one in our country that regularly performs this implantation, several dozen such operations have already been successfully performed. On average, it is done twice a month. Patients who have undergone the procedure so far have improved their sexual as well as their overall personal lives.
Although it is a relatively complex procedure, the regeneration and ability of normal human operation is quite fast. “All patients have only minimal restrictions 2 weeks after the operation, after six weeks they are able to fully deploy, including sports and sex. Control of the implant is very easy for clients, they are able to use the implant after one appointment with training,” says MUDr. Lukáš Bittner. The procedure with an inflatable implant costs approximately CZK 275,000, which is a third less than in Western European countries.
ISCARE clinic implants are supplied by a specialized company Aspironix. Inflatable implants are easy to operate with a small pump located in the scrotum – a man with just a few presses fills the cylinders of the implant with fluid, which is in a reservoir located in the small pelvis, and thus an erection. After sexual intercourse, the implant is emptied by releasing the pump valve. When using an inflatable implant, the penis achieves very good erectile hardness and a natural appearance in a flaccid state. Unlike a “healthy” penis, most partners are not able to recognize it either. More information can be found at www.penilni-implantaty.cz.
