Abstract

Purpose of Review We review the recent literature on the between subclinical CVD, ED, and clinical CVD, we rec- hypothesized temporal relationship between subclinical ommend that all men with vascular ED should undergo cardiovascular disease (CVD), vascular erectile dysfunc- cardiovascular risk assessment. We further recommend tion (ED), and clinical CVD. In addition, we combine using CAC scores for advanced risk assessment in pa- emerging research with expert consensus guidelines such tients at low–intermediate to intermediate risk (5–20% as The Princeton Consensus III to provide a preventive CVD risk), with risk driving subsequent lifestyle and cardiologist’s perspective toward an ideal approach to pharmacologic treatment decisions. evaluating and managing CVD and ED risk in patients. . .
