Abstract

Diabetes mellitus is commonly associated with erectile dysfunction (ED). Fifty-three diabetic male veterans presenting with ED underwent an extensive medical examination, psychological evaluation, and a detailed assessment of sexual functioning. They then underwent two consecutive nights of inhospital Rigiscan monitoring to assess erectile capacity. Multivariate analyses indicated that patient reports of a.m. erections and erectile quality were highly predictive of Rigiscan measures of penile tip and base rigidity and duration of erectile episodes. These results highlight the importance of attending to patient reports of specific sexual symptomatology in the evaluation of diabetic patients presenting with ED.
