Priapus Shot® Procedure

Priapus Shot ®  also referred to as the P Shot  is a procedure that  uses   blood-derived growth factors extracted from the man’s own blood (autologous).   The name “Priapus Shot ®” is registered with the US Patent & Trademark office as a “service mark” to protect patients by indicating a specific protocol.*

Understanding Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma is derived  patient’s own blood.   It  is  prepared by  centrifuging a patient’s blood sample yielding a higher concentration of platelet than is normally found in blood.   The centrifuge spinning causes the blood to separate into layers that include: 1) red blood cells that are forced to the bottom of the vial, 2) White blood cells and platelets form a thin middle layer, called a buffy coat  and 3) Platelet-poor  plasma, or plasma with a low concentration of platelets that makes up the  top layer.  It is the middle layer which is extracted from the centrifuged blood that is used for the PRP injection preparation.

Plasma is the watery part of the blood  that  contain proteins, nutrients, glucose and other substances produced by the body.  It carries red and white bloods cells, platelets  and other substances that must travel in the blood.  Platelets  secrete substances called growth factors  that  control  cell division, stimulate tissue regeneration, and promote healing. PRP which contain high amount of platelets is used for Priapus Shot ® ( P Shot) due to it ability to stimulate tissue regeneration and increase blood flow.*

Priapus Shot ® (P Shot ) Protocol

Priapus Shot ® procedure protocol  involves patient selection, patient evaluation & education (including explanation of consent), preparation of the PRP, local anesthesia, PRP injection and post injection use of a pump on a daily basis. Other post injection steps can include: stopping smoking, CoQ10 (12), vitamin E (13), Trimix, and aerobic exercise. Protocol steps vary depending on the patient and those variations also comprise the Priapus Shot® protocol.*

Patient selection includes identifying those who may need hormonal treatment, or family counseling, or vascular surgery, as well as those who may have co-morbidities or who may be taking drugs that interfere with their health. Some patients are not treated with the Priapus Shot ® protocol because another treatment or no treatment is more appropriate.*

Taylor Medical Group  evaluation  protocol also include screening for systemic cardiovascular disease, autonomic nervous system dysfunction and cell degeneration conditions that can effect overall health and   wellness.  Our board certified physicians are Priapus Shot ®  certified providers.

Priapus Shot®  Science

An early report that PRP may be useful in appeared in a paper published in Urology in 2003 mentioning that, in animal models, using blood-derived growth factors injected  successfully treated erectile dysfunction and also mentioned that such a strategy may be feasible in men— actually providing a way to correct the underlying pathology (1). In contrast, to ED drugs that do not correct the underlying pathology of decreased penile circulation.*

Another animal study in 2010 showed that transferring adipocyte derived stem cells (ADSCs)   caused endothelia cell growth (new blood flow) as well as increased nitric oxide activity in the dorsal nerve . But, the ADSCs were tagged before injection (to keep up with them) and most of the injected stem cells died! So the improvement seen was not from maturation of the ADSCs but rather from recruitment and activation by growth factors of stem cells already in the body—indicating PRP may demonstrate a similar effect (2).*

Dr. Virag (also a pioneer of Trimix injections) published research demonstrating improvement in  function, size, and correction of Peyronie’s disease with the use of PRP. His studies both published (and to be published) demonstrate a mean increase of 7 on the ED Intensity Score when PRP is injected into the plaque and corpus cavernosum. (3).*

The above studies and others not cited indicate an improvement in the health, circulation, and  tissue strength with injection of blood-derived growth factors.*
