Abstract

Cardiovascular disease is increasing in prevalence and is considered to be one of the most common causes of death in Western societies. As cardiovascular disease is more common in men than women, andrologists increase their interest in this issue. Due to similarities in the mechanisms of cardiovascular diseases and the mechanisms of male sexual dysfunction, these two disease states are often linked. Unsurprisingly, erectile dysfunction in now considered a marker for cardiovascular diseases. For this reason, it is important to understand the connections between cardiovascular disease and male sexual health in order to prevent morbidity and mortality associated with these diseases.
