Condition(s) targeted: Erectile Dysfunction; Arterial Hypertension; Endothelial Dysfunction
Intervention: Vardenafil (Drug)
Phase: Phase 4

The purpose of the study is to assess the correlation of FMD of brachial artery and carotid
intima media thickness with ED severity and clinical response to vardenafil in hypertensive
Official title: Correlation of Flow Mediated Dilation of Brachial Artery and Carotid Intima Media Thickness With Erectile Dysfunction Severity and Clinical Response to PDE 5 Inhibitor in Hypertensive Men
Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment
Primary outcome: clinical response to vardenafil
Secondary outcome: endothelial dysfunction
To achieve this objective, a prospective study will be conducted, with hypertensive
patients ranging from 50 to 70 years, presenting vasculogenic erectile dysfunction for over
six months and sexually actives. All patients will be assessed for clinical and laboratorial
data, endothelial dysfunction, endothelium independent vasodilation and carotid intima media
thickness at the inclusion of the study. They will receive medical orientations from the
same urologist and will return after four attempts with 20 mg of vardenafil.
Minimum age: 50 Years.
Maximum age: 70 Years.
- arterial hypertension and erectile dysfunction of vascular origin for at least 6
- other condition that cause erectile dysfunction such as depression, hypogonadism,
surgery, trauma, major cardiovascular event
