Abstract

Sexuality remains an important issue in the older population. In spite of a decreased ability to achieve an erection, there is continued sexual desire. Many studies suggest that erectile dysfunction in the aged is primarily caused by age-associated chronic disease rather than normal, healthy aging. Therefore, preventive measures that are aimed at the underlying diseases should be sought. Nevertheless, effective treatment options are now available to successfully regain sexual function and thereby, improve quality of life.
