摘要

Introduction: Testosterone deficiency increases the cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. Aim: To evaluate the effect of erectile dysfunction (ED), sexual frequency and hypogonadal symptoms on CVD risk. Methods: A total of 395 hypogonadal men aged 45–74 years were surveyed using the Androgen Deficiency in the Aging Male and the International Index of Erectile Function. Main outcome measures: The 10-year CVD risk was measured with the Framingham Risk Score. Logistic regression was performed to obtain the odds ratios of sexual function and hypogonadal symptoms for a 10-year CVD risk ≥20% (high risk). Results: The mean age was 56.1 ± 6.7 years. The mean 10-year CVD risk of the whole cohort was 18.1% ± 11.4%, while 131 subjects (33.2%) were classified as high risk. Logistic regression revealed that ED severity was associated with CVD risk [OR = 2.37 (CI 1.24–4.51) for mild-to-moderate ED, OR = 4.39 (1.78–8.43) for moderate ED and OR = 12.81 (4.65–26.11) for severe ED].
