Introduction. In recent years, there have been more and more episodes of men seeking medical care in order to restore erectile function. It is also relates to a neurogenic form of ED associated with osteochondrosis which is widespread and quite difficult to treat. In this regard, new methods of therapy are being introduced in urological practice, including the use of platelet-rich autoplasma. The effectiveness of the use of PRP in andrology has been proven by numerous studies, including the work of M.E. Chalyi and M.V. Epifanova, where the effect of PRP on the restoration of erectile function in case of damage to the cavernous nerves was studied.
