Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment
Each subject will receive a single injection of autologous adipose-derived stromal vascular fraction (SVF) and will be monitored for 6 months
Device: GID SVF-2
Treatment of erectile dysfunction with the subjects own cells
Other Names:
  • GIDZyme-2-50
  • GID Procedure Pack

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Monitoring of adverse events

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) [ Time Frame: Pre-treatment, 30 days, 3 months and 6 months ]
    The IIEF is a brief 15-item, self-administered questionnaire that was developed as a measure to detect treatment-related erectile function in patients in cross-cultural settings. Instrument includes 5 domains; erectile function (EF), orgasmic function (OF), sexual desire (SD), intercourse satisfaction (IS) and overall satisfaction (OS). The sub-scales scores range as follows: Erectile Function: 1-30 Orgasmic Function: 0-10 Sexual Desire: 2-10 Intercourse Satisfaction: 0-15 Overall Satisfaction: 2-10 The items are not weighted and total scores range from 5 to 75. On the Erectile Function sub-scale lower scores indicate worse erectile dysfunction, while on the remaining sub-scales higher scores indicate less dysfunction

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Partner Satisfaction Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Pre-treatment and 30 days, 3 months and 6 months ]
    This questionnaire asks the partner for their perceptions of effectiveness and overall satisfaction with the SVF treatment their partner received for erectile dysfunction. The questionnaire consists of 7 Likert scale questions (1 - 5), with a total score range of 7 to 35 with higher scores indicating more satisfaction. There are no subscales.
