Research has shown a connection between erectile dysfunction (ED) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in men, and has established a need to consider one a precursor to the other.
Researchers further evaluated the association of these two conditions and whether the association could be age-related.
A random sample of men from the Olmsted County population was evaluated by questionnaire, and community medical records of the subjects were examined. Logistical regression models examined the associations between ED and CVD. Men with CVD were 4.2 times more likely to have ED than men without heart disease. The results underscore a need to consider sexual function in men with heart disease and CVD in men with ED.
