How effective is a vascular reconstructive surgery for ED?

ANSWER

Unfortunately, vascular reconstructive surgery doesn’t seem to work very well over time. Even the best studies show that only 1 out of 20 men improved after the treatment. The success rate is higher for younger men with a single damaged blood vessel from a pelvic or genital injury.
