  • Advances in Pharmacotherapy for Erectile Dysfunction and Associated Cardiac Impact.

    Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and erectile dysfunction (ED) are two disease processes that affect millions of men. CVD and ED are increasingly recognized as sharing a common pathophysiologic origin. As the nature of this relationship continues to be elucidated, there is growing interest in developing a therapy to effectively target both processes.

    Traditional risk factors used to assess cardiovascular risk miss a significant population who are indeed at risk for future cardiac events. Erectile dysfunction (ED) is an emerging marker for future cardiovascular disease (CVD) and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), especially in young and middle-aged men with vasculogenic ED.
