Treatment of Impotence

A vacuum pump is a mechanical tube that is used to pull blood into the penis. As the penis fills with blood, it becomes firm (this is what happens during a normal erection). Often pumps are used in conjunction with tight rubber bands that are placed around the base of the penis, and which prevent blood from escaping.
