Erectile Dysfunction: The Global Prevalence

The global prevalence of erectile dysfunction vary widely, ranging from 3% to 76.5%, stated a review of published studies. The findings are published in BJU International.

The variation may reflect differences in study population ages and different definitions and assessment methods of erectile dysfunction.



The authors noted that early detection of erectile dysfunction may help improve quality of life in affected men, and also indicate when interventions may be warranted to prevent cardiovascular disease and early death. "Due to the sensitive nature of the topic, physicians should consider screening for erectile dysfunction in at-risk patients, as information may not be volunteered," they wrote.
