THIS DISEASE IS A TROUBLE FOR 70 OUT OF EVERY 100 MEN

Sexuality is a phenomenon that has a critical role in lives of men and women. An individual can have many transient or chronic diseases throughout the lifetime. Disorders in sexual life can also be transient or chronic. Permanent diseases are particularly common among men. “Erectile dysfunction” (inability to achieve sexual intercourse) means a man’s inability to achieve or maintain sexual intercourse for at least 6 months due to various reasons.

This condition is seen in 70 out of every 100 men at various levels (mild, moderate and severe) in Turkey. The main causes of this disorder are aging, smoking, diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension and high cholesterol level.

Vascular disorders are the reason for approximately two thirds of the cases. The problem with the vessels is the insufficient blood supply or leak of blood with another vessel in spite of sufficient blood supply. “Doppler ultrasound” is the examination used to determine the problematic vessel. After the problematic vessel is determined with this examination, suitable treatment option can be selected. If this disorder emerges due to insufficient blood supply, certain drugs (Viagra, Levitra, Cialis etc.) can be used while a new vascular connection can also be formed to ensure sufficient blood supply, in other words, the disorder can be eliminated. If the blood supply is sufficient, however it cannot be preserved, no benefit can be expected from the drugs. In this case, the disorder can be eliminated by clamping the vessels that cause the leak. For the patients who cannot be treated with drugs or surgeries, managing the disorder with prosthesis surgery will be appropriate.
