Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Although there is now ample evidence that men with manifest coronary, cerebral and peripheral vascular disease and their risk factors are at highest risk for suffering from erectile dysfunction, recent findings demonstrate a strong connection between erectile dysfunction and endothelial dysfunction. This review explores how urologists and other providers may utilize the link between these conditions in clinical practice, compares methods of assessing endothelial dysfunction and finally speculates on how this additional information might impact treatment plans.
