Out of the 37 patients, 15 (40%) had ED. Patients significantly reduced the frequency of coitus (P<0.05). Out of nine patients with distress, eight presented ED, and of 28 patients without(More)

METHODS Consecutive and prospective assessment of 66 patients (40% male) aged 81 +/- 5 years of which 57% were hypertensive, 38% had(More)
