Abstract

What's known on the subject? and What will the study add? Erectile dysfunction is often associated with endothelial dysfunction. It is also recognized as a marker for underlying vascular disease. This study tests the hypothesis that statin therapy may improve erectile function and also reduce the risk of future cardiovascular events via a reduction in serum cholesterol and by improving endothelial function. The study will also determine whether the treatment improves quality of life related to sexual function.
