Erectile dysfunction also called impotence is defined as the consistent or recurrent inability to acquire or sustain an erection of sufficient rigidity and duration for sexual intercourse. Although erectile dysfunction is a benign disorder, it affects psychic and social physical health and has an important impact on the quality of life of those who suffer from it, their partners and their families.
A recent review of epidemiological studies on erectile dysfunction suggests that approximately 5-20% of men suffer from moderate to severe erectile dysfunction. The incidence of impotence increases considerably with age, reaching a prevalence of up to 40% in patients over 65 years. However, it is not an inevitable consequence of aging.
Erectile dysfunction is treatable at any age and knowledge of this fact has been increasing. Many more men have sought medical help and have returned to normal sexual activity thanks to the greater efficacy of treatments for impotence.
With aging, it is also normal for changes in erectile function to be experienced. Erections may take longer to develop, not be as firm or require more direct stimulation to occur. Men also notice that their orgasms are less intense, the volume of the ejaculate is smaller and the recovery time increases between erections.
When erectile dysfunction proves to have a pattern or becomes a persistent problem, it can impair a man’s self-image and affect his sex life. It can also be a sign of an emotional or physical problem that requires treatment.
Erectile dysfunction has traditionally been a taboo subject. Luckily, attitudes are changing, men consult more frequently for this problem, doctors are increasingly aware of the causes of erectile dysfunction and pharmacological research is finding new and better ways to treat it.
Penis structure and physiology of erection
The human penis is composed of three columns of erectile tissue: two corpora cavernosa and one spongy body. The first are found side by side in the upper part of the penis, while the spongy body is located in the lower part. These structures are surrounded by a fibrous membrane called tunica albuginea. The urethra is a conduit through which the expulsion of urine and semen occurs, is surrounded by the spongy body and ends in a hole known as urinary meatus, which is located at the end of the glans.
The glans constitutes the distal end of the spongy body and the widest part thereof. It is a very sensitive structure due to the large number of nerve endings it has. It is covered by the foreskin which can be removed to leave the glans exposed.
Male sexual functioning requires an adequate interaction between the vascular, hormonal, neurological and physiological systems of the individual. The initial triggering event necessary for sexual intercourse, obtaining and maintaining an erection is primarily a vascular phenomenon. For an erection to occur, adequate blood flow to the erectile tissue of the penis (the spongy body and the corpora cavernosa) is needed. While this blood flow increases, intracavernous pressure increases, blocking venous drainage of the penis. The balance between increased intracavernous arterial flow and blockage of venous drainage is what allows man to obtain and maintain a firm erection. Intracavernous trabeculae dilate to allow blood to enter the corpora cavernosa thanks to the local action of nitric oxide, therefore high levels of this neurotransmitter maximize penile blood flow. On the other hand, penile detumescence occurs when the vasodilator effect of Nitric Oxide disappears due to the action of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cyclic GMP) metabolism, mediated by phosphodiesterase type 5.
The neurological part of male sexual functioning is mediated by visual, auditory or tactile erotic stimuli that lead to increased pelvic blood flow to the corpora cavernosa.
Testosterone also plays a very important role in male sexual functioning, as it increases the libido which is necessary for the maintenance of intrapenean nitric oxide levels.
Causes of erectile dysfunction
The main causes of erectile dysfunction are related to lesions in the nerves, arteries, muscle and tissues that make up the structure of the penis.
Diseases such as diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, alcoholism, kidney failure, and neurological diseases are associated with approximately 70% of cases of erectile dysfunction. For example, between 30 and 50% of men with diabetes experience erectile dysfunction.
In addition, surgery, particularly radical prostatectomy due to cancer, can damage nerves and arteries in the area near the penis and cause erectile dysfunction. Lesions in the penis, spinal cord, prostate, bladder and pelvis can end up causing erectile dysfunction due to an injury to the structures responsible for producing an erection.
The main psychological factors responsible for erectile dysfunction are stress, anxiety and fatigue. Relationship problems also have a significant impact on the sexual function of men and can lead to erectile dysfunction. Together with these factors, feelings of guilt, low self-esteem or fear of low sexual performance cause approximately 20% of cases of erectile dysfunction.
Other possible causes of erectile dysfunction are hormonal disorders, such as testosterone deficiency, and smoking, which affects the blood flow to the penis. In addition, some medications can cause erectile dysfunction such as antihypertensives, antidepressants, antihistamines, and anxiolytics.
Prevention of this sexual problem is based mainly on changing and controlling day to day life habits, such as practicing regular physical activity and keeping an adequate diet to control body weight. Staying away from smoking and drug´s consumption, and control alcoholic intake. Diminishing and controlling mental stress will help by improving the emotional sphere. Consulting a general physician regularly to keep an eye on your blood tests will ensure you everything is good.
