Direx exhibits Renova for the first time at ESSM, a dedicated european society for sexual medicine.  Interest in the unique Linear Shockwave Technology (LSWT) was immediate and strong resulting in requests for initial placements at leading private clinics worldwide. Shockwave treatment targets the revascularization vessels thus leading to improvement of erectile function.  Characteristic which was especially noted and appreciated by the men's health professional community, was the ability to fully treat the penile shaft and corpus cavernosum. DirexGroup believes that Renova treatment will allow improved sexual function for patients.

Dr. Reisman of Amstelland Hospital in Amsterdam will be presenting his study on the effect of treatment of non bacterial chronic prostatitis with TURF on sexual disorders: a pilot study.  The presentation will be displayed at the upcoming Congress of the European Society for Sexual Medicine to take place November 14 to 17 at the Trade Fairs and Congress Center in Malaga, Spain. 

Non bacterial Prostatitis has an adverse effect on the quality of life and is also associated with the appearance of sexual disorders (SD).  Following a three month follow up, treatment with the Tempro device by Direx showed a 78% improvement of pain symptoms related to CPPS as well as significant improvements in sexual disorders like erectile dysfunction, painful ejaculation and loss of desire.  Dr. Reisman concludes "By treating CP/CPPS with thermal therapy of the prostate some sexual disorders showed improvement".

DARTFORD, ENGLAND – Three years ago, Darent Valley Hospital added lithotripsy treatments through a partnership with DirexGroup, with European headquarters in Wiesbaden, Germany, to serve those patients suffering from kidney stones.  After an upgrade to the newest Direx, dual head, electromagnetic Duet Magna lithotripter, Darent Valley Hospital has elected to continue and expand on their relationship with Direx hoping to treat a larger number of patients in the years ahead.  “We have been very pleased with the equipment and service received from Direx," stated Alex Tan, Director of Surgical Services for Darent Valley Hospital. “We expect our patient volume for this treatment service to continue to grow and we needed the right equipment in place to do so.”  Darent Valley Hospital uses the Duet Magna lithotripter from Direx, the only dual head shockwave lithotripsy system on the market.  “The dual head approach allows us to treat patients more effectively and with less discomfort than other lithotripters on the market,” stated Mr Sriprasad, urological surgeon at Darent Valley. “We plan also to add an ultrasound unit which will allow us to treat additional patients.  We have been very pleased with the fragmentation results we have achieved with the Duet Magna over the past three years.”   The Duet Magna is a favored lithotripter in the industry as it allows for great flexibility.  Hospitals can use existing C-arms for xray imaging or purchase the C-arm of their choice.  This is also true of treatment tables, as Magna works with most tables on the market today.  The dual head feature has been shown to significantly reduce kidney damage while increasing the effectiveness of stone fragmentation. “Darent Valley is a very progressive hospital and a strong reference site for our company in the United Kingdom”, reported Niv Ein-Gal, Chief Operating Officer for DirexGroup. “They provide a perfect setting for our equipment as they are always looking for ways to improve their treatment environment for their patients.  We look forward to our extended contract with Darent Valley Hospital and look to expand to other UK hospitals.”
