P-Shot® Data Information March 2018
The P-Shot® uses Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) activated as a Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM), that harnesses the power of the patients own platelet growth factors to regenerate new connective, vascular and neural tissue. The P-Shot® is a minimally invasive autologous medical treatment used across multiple medical specialties - including cosmetic rejuvenation.
There have been no serious long term effects found with PRP when administered appropriately with an FDA approved kit. A recent retrospective study in the Investigative Clinical Urology, Ethan 2018, concluded that PRFM injections for Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and Peyronie’s Disease (PD) are feasible and safe (1)
The P-Shot® is a trademarked procedure created by Dr Charles Runels. All global providers are registered members of the Cellular Medicine Association which includes urologists, surgeons, cosmetic physicians and general practitioners (2).
Patient Satisfaction Rates.
A retrospective study of over 1200 patients by Kumar CS, J Sex Med 2016 showed a 70% satisfaction rate (3). Important variables such as patient medical history, presence chronic illness, medications-anti platelet therapy, lifestyle-smoking, type of PRP kits, harvesting technique, quality of PRP, doctor skill and patient expectations are contributing factors towards patient satisfaction and dissatisfaction rates (2a).
In New Zealand there are more than 1 in 3 men who suffer from erectile dysfunction in their lifetime (4,5) the majority of whom present with mild-to-moderate erectile symptoms, which worsen with age (4). We recommend that any complicated cases that have not previously been investigated be referred to the appropriate clinicians such as an urologist before proceeding with any treatment.
