Erectile dysfunction is common in the ageing man and reliable therapies are needed. The pathophysiology of erectile dysfunction in this group mainly includes chronic ischaemia, which triggers the deterioration of cavernosal smooth muscle and the development of corporeal fibrosis.

Abstract

Erectile dysfunction is common in the ageing man and reliable therapies are needed. The pathophysiology of erectile dysfunction in this group mainly includes chronic ischaemia, which triggers the deterioration of cavernosal smooth muscle and the development of corporeal fibrosis. Assessing the ageing man with erectile dysfunction who seeks medical treatment should comprise a thorough medical and sexual history, a systemic and focused physical examination and selected blood tests. Oral drug therapy represents a safe and effective option for most ageing men. OI Guazzoni, Giorgio Ferruccio/0000-0002-5713-8313
