Renal & urology news reports that ED ‘predicts’ CVD and provides a way to prevent coronary events – something affecting men everywhere.
The Princeton Consensus Conference recommends evaluating men with ED for CVD. A third or more men in the U.S. have undiagnosed risk factors, such as high cholesterol, hypertension, and diabetes. Far too often, the first sign of heart disease in such patients is sudden cardiac death.
Researchers in this study modeled the costs of CVD screening and compared them with likely outcomes. If men with ED were screened and treated for CVD risk factors, it could prevent 1.1 million acute CVD events at a cost saving of $21.3 billion over 20 years. If it likewise reduced the ED burden, it could save additional $9.7 billion.
If all men presenting with erectile dysfunction were screened for cardiovascular disease, 5.8 million men with previously unknown heart-related risk factors would be identified over 20 years, costing $2.7 billion to screen. Assuming a 20% decrease in cardiovascular events as a result of screening and treatment, 1.1 million cardiovascular events would be avoided, saving $21.3 billion over 20 years.
