About this book

It is now generally appreciated that heart disease and its attendant risk factors are a leading cause of erectile dysfunction (ED) and that ED is often an early warning sign of vascular disease. In Heart Disease and Erectile Dysfunction, senior physicians, cardiologists, urologists, psychologists, and pharmacologists critically review the relationship between heart disease and erectile dysfunction and explain for the practicing physician the effective new treatment options available for the cardiac patient with ED. The authors detail in concise language the latest thinking about the risk of sexually induced cardiac events, the efficacy and risks to cardiac patients of drugs used to treat sexual dysfunction, and the expert guidelines developed by prominent organizations on the optimal approach to sexual dysfunction in the cardiac patient. They also discuss the physiology of ED and how the currently available therapies (sildenafil, tadalafil, and vardenafil) may interact with the cardiac system, and the potential application of newer phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors to cardiovascular disease.
Comprehensive and pathbreaking, Heart Disease and Erectile Dysfunction not only clearly delineates for practicing physicians all aspects of the interaction between the vascular system and erectile dysfunction, but also establishes a sound medical basis for the management of cardiac patients suffering erectile disorders.
