Epidemiological data have shown a high prevalence and incidence of ED worldwide (1)

  • it is thought to affects up to one third of men throughout their life
  • incidence increases with age.,

The Massachusetts Male Aging Study (MMAS), a community based, random sample prospective observational survey of non-institutionalised men aged 40-70 years has reported that 52% of men had ED

  • 17% have minimal erectile dysfunction
  • 25% have moderate erectile dysfunction
  • 10% have complete erectile dysfunction

A UK study of men aged 18-75 showed a rate of 39% for lifetime ED with a current prevalence of 26% (2)

An association between lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS)/benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) and sexual dysfunction in aging men that is independent of the effects of age, other comorbidities, and various lifestyle factors has been demonstrated in several studies (3).
