Erectile Dysfunction

About Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction, formerly called male impotence, is the persistent inability to achieve or maintain an adequate erection. The causes of erectile dysfunction can be organic or psychogenic. Erectile dysfunction treatment was revolutionized with the introduction of the erectile dysfunction medication sildenafil and several similar erectile dysfunction drugs that followed, including vardenafil and tadalafil, which were approved for first-line treatment of erectile dysfunction.
