Abstract

Some previous literature indicated an association between cardiovascular diseases and erectile dysfunction (ED). This case-control study purposed to evaluate the association between prior mitral valve prolapse (MVP) and ED using data from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Dataset. In this study, 48,755 patients with ED were identified as cases, and 195,020 propensity score-matched patients without ED were selected as controls. Conditional logistic regressions were conducted to evaluate the odds ratios (ORs) for previous MVP between cases and the matched controls. In all sampled patients, 4,565 (1.87%) patients had MVP before the index date. MVP was found in 1,304 (2.67%) cases and in 3,261 (1.67%) matched controls. Patients with ED had a significantly higher occurrence of MVP than the controls. In addition, after propensity score matching, a conditional logistic regression analysis showed that the OR of previous MVP for patients with ED was 1.63 (95% confidence interval [CI] 1.52 to 1.74) compared to the matched controls. The ORs of previous MVP for patients with ED aged ≤65 years and those >65 years were 1.68 (95% CI 1.56 to 1.81) and 1.49 (95% CI 1.30 to 1.70), respectively, compared with the matched controls. We found that patients with erectile dysfunction had significantly higher odds of previous MVP compared with matched control subjects without ED regardless of the age group.
