Many options: Vacuum pump is a mechanical means to obtain an erection which is then maintained by placing a ring at the base of penis to restrict outflow. Alprostadil can be given as a shot or placed into the urethra to cause an erection. Urologists can surgically place penile implants to help achieve an erection.
