An association between diminution in the quality of male sexual function and ischemic coronary disease has been suggested. Patients with ischemic heart disease who underwent coronary angiography participated in this study which aimed to document the impact of the extent of coronary disease upon sexual function in 40 patients (mean age 56.6 y). The 11-questions accepted questionnaire addressing sexual drive, erectile function, and ejaculation was used. Information regarding, age, medications, hypertension, diabetes, relevant risk factors, medical history, and the number of occluded coronary vessels was retrieved from the patients' records. A statistically significant correlation was demonstrated between erectile function and the number of coronary vessels involved. Patients with one-vessel disease had more (P < 0.04) and firmer erections (P < 0.001) with fewer difficulties in achieving an erection (P < 0.007) than men with two- or three-vessel disease. Age, diabetes, and hypertension also had a negative effect on the quality of the erection (P < 0.05) in all patients.
