Abstract

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as the inability to achieve and maintain a penile erection adequate for satisfactory sexual intercourse.1 Up to 150 million men worldwide suffer from ED and this figure is likely to double by the year 2025.2 A number of studies have attempted to characterise the true prevalence of ED. In a Danish study, Ventegodt reported that 5.4% of all patients had a decreased ability to achieve an erection.3 The prevalence was reported to be highest (18%) in those aged over 58 years. The Massachusetts Male Aging Study (MMAS)4 reported the results of a regional survey of 1709 men aged 40–69 years. In this study 52% reported some degree of ED, with 10% having complete ED. Moreover, the results suggest that the probability of complete ED at age 70 was threefold compared to that at age 40; the probability of moderate ED was two-fold.
