Sexual Science: Men with erectile dysfunction have increased risk for cardiovascular events

By December 22, 2005

Follow me on:

A study to be released tomorrow in the Journal of the American Medical Association has found a substantial association between erectile dysfunction in men and future cardiovascular disease.

The study followed a group of men, aged 55 and over, for over 7 years. While most men with heart disease can take Viagra safely, and the authors are not calling for every man with erectile dysfunction to have a full cardiovascular assessment, they are pointing to erectile dysfunction as an important indicatory that a man may be a increased risk for heart disease.
