Viagra for lymphatic disordersSome physicians at the Packard Children’s Hospital, while working on the efficacy of Viagra accidently discovered that Viagra has the ability to shrink an overgrown vessel in the body. In order to establish if this was true, they gave Viagra to a child who was having severe lymphangioma in order to treat another condition in the child which was pulmonary hypertension. The scientists began to notice that lymph malformation was shrunk significantly. Though it was noted that the child eventually died which was due to the underlying health condition it was suffering from, it was brought to limelight that Viagra did work in treating lymphatic disorder. The physicians also displayed the dramatic before and after effects of the drug in the patients to journals and to publications.

In the years earlier, there was no proper cure for lymphangiomas. But over the years, there is one such treatment available that can address to not just one condition but two. Viagra can be used for treating lymphatic disorder and also to treat erectile dysfunction at the same time. The scientists stated that the lymphatic system is a network connecting little tubes and little straws. Therefore, there’s a possibility that the active component in Viagra i.e. the sildenafil can actually help to open and drain the channels.

Progress of the study and the efficacy of Viagra in battling lymphatic disorder

The medicine Viagra is used in a lot of cases. For instance, the med is used at large in children for treating pulmonary hypertension. However the drug when used in children can also result in side effects like headaches, nausea and also symptoms of cold and flu like runny nose or fever. It is possible to observe spontaneous erection in children; however the same is a very infrequent side effect. Research is still in progress to determine how Viagra can play a role in treating lymphatic disorder and if it can actually do the task. Some doctors are also engaged in placebo controlled trials so as to find out if Viagra can heal lymphatic disorder and to what extent. Researchers however after proving through placebo controlled trial methods, have to get the approval from the FDA for employing Viagra in the treatment of lymphatic disorders.
