What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability of the patient to achieve and/or maintain the rigidity necessary to complete a successful sexual intercourse. Erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, is a very common problem and it affects millions of men in all age groups around the world.

Impotence is a massive burden in the society and it does represent a problem for the patient and for his partner and it can cause strain to the couple. As also discussed for patients with acquired penile curvature (Peyronie’s Disease), erectile dysfunction can be source of embarrassment, frustration and low self-esteem.

There is evidence of the presence of a strong association between erectile dysfunction, acquired penile curvature (Peyronie’s Disease) and cardiovascular risk factors. In particular, erectile dysfunction may represent the first sign of otherwise silent diffuse cardiovascular disease.

Since in presence of diffuse cardiovascular disease, the smallest vessels seem to be affected first, the penis is the first organ to show signs of cardiovascular disease. An international study has shown how erectile dysfunction may represent the first warning sign of diffuse cardiovascular disease and therefore prompt medical intervention can treat erectile dysfunction and stop the progression of cardiovascular disease, thus preventing the patient from developing a major cardiac event within the following 10 years.
