The question of such ailment, like erectile dysfunction, arises only when a male organism is not able to maintain or control erection during sexual intercourse. Problems with erection are observed in almost 30 percent of men on the whole planet aged 35 years and more. Most doctors believe that erectile dysfunction is a consequence of certain diseases, as well as psychological problems.
Vasculogenic erectile dysfunction is directly related to the deterioration of blood flow in the lower abdomen and genital area of a man. If arteries that serve to fill the penis with blood are narrowed, then this dysfunction is called arteriogenic. Venoocclusive dysfunction develops if veins located in the penis are unable to reduce and retain blood in cavernous bodies of the penis. In most cases, vascular causes of the development of erectile dysfunction are observed as a result of the development of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, as well as due to smoking or obesity.
