He graduated in Medicine and Surgery and subsequently completed his training in Urology at the Vita Salute San Raffaele University in Milan. He holds a PhD in stem cells and erectile dysfunction from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium). He is a member of the European Committee of Sexual Medicine (FECSM), of the European Urology Board (FEBU) and member of the scientific committee of the Andrological Guidelines of the International Sexual Medicine Society (ISSM), of the European Society of Urology (UAE) and of the European Society for Sexual Medicine (ESSM). Dr. Castiglione also holds the qualifications as Full Professor in Urology in Italy and Consult Urologist at the King’s College Hospital in London.
Dr. Castiglione is the author of over 90 publications in international journals and is the creator of P-Shocks® www.p-shotlondon.com, the most advanced treatment for Peyronie’s disease and erectile dysfunction, for which for which he was awarded with Excellence Award 2022 from the European Society for Sexual Medicine and from the international Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM)
The acronym PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. In recent years, it has become famous because many famous athletes such as Tiger Woods or tennis star Rafael Nadal have used it to solve various problems, such as dislocated knees and chronic tendon injuries. The media effect has created a strong impact on public opinion but science is not unanimous towards this treatment. It is a blood product that is exceptionally rich in platelets. PRP has long been used in hospitals to speed up the body’s healing process. Platelets in the blood perform numerous vital roles in the body, the most important of which is the release of growth factors that aid in wound healing.. These growth factors encourage stem cells to generate new tissues as soon as feasible.
Pshot is a procedure for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease. It starts with a basic blood sample that is processed and centrifuged under medical supervision in order to separate the cellular component from the serous component (PRP) (platelet-rich plasma). The latter is the one which, rich in platelets and concentrated growth factors, is then used by microinjections into the affected tissue.
It is postulated that growth factors influence the functionality of the corpora cavernosa-formed penile vascular system. Improved vascular capacity allows for more vigorous erections. The treatment lasts about 30 minutes. The patient is told to lie down, and after disinfecting the genitals, a couple of relatively painless micro-injections are performed, thanks to the micro-dimensions of the needles used and the application of an anaesthetic cream.”
The aim of the treatment is the regenerative stimulation of the corpora cavernous.This should lead to more consistent and long-lasting erections thanks to the improvement in vascular capacity. Since there are no contraindications, it is a treatment applicable to everyone but it should be remembered that each patient must be carefully evaluated by a specialist. The treatment involves a cycle of at least 3 sessions at a distance of a few weeks from each other, it can be carried out in facilities equipped with an analysis laboratory where the blood test tube can be sent to obtain PRP.
The treatment is being marketed as a new regenerative therapy for erectile dysfunction which involves, as we have seen, the injection of PRP (platelet-rich plasma) into the penis. Despite Pshot’s popularity over the past year, scientific evidence of its effectiveness is LITTLE!
Most current studies have NOT shown any efficacy. This lack of efficacy of PRP is mainly due to the fact that this treatment is usually provided NOT by experts in the field but often by plastic surgeons, nurses, physiotherapists, general practitioners or aesthetic doctors who have little knowledge of erectile dysfunction and penile physiology. They are usually scammers. The real expert on erectile dysfunction is the andrologist.
As amply demonstrated for stem cells, PRP should only work when injected into a suitably inflamed system. For this reason, penile inflammation must first be induced for the penis to be in optimal condition to receive the maximum benefit from PRP. The P-Shocks® protocol has this specific purpose, to ensure that the penis is adequately inflamed to receive the PRP
The Pshot protocol consists of injecting one-time PRP without considering the causes of the erectile dysfunction, the patient’s comorbidities or the level of erectile dysfunction. Unfortunately most of the treatments are administered by incompetent people who know nothing about regenerative medicine and do not respect the biological conditions necessary for Pshot to work.It is almost impossible that PRP alone can improve the quality of penile tissue. On the other hand, P-Shocks® is not only based on PRP, but also on supplements, drugs, vacuum pumps and shock waves. P-Shocks® is a holistic approach that provides a perfect mix of different therapeutic procedures and drugs, which allows the penis to have the optimal conditions to receive PRP. P-Shocks® is a tailor-made treatment, specifically designed to solve your specific problems of impotence or Peyronie’s disease.
