Erectile Dysfunction Associated With Subclinical Myocardial
Erectile dysfunction is tied to higher circulating concentrations of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I (hs-cTnI), indicating subclinical myocardial injury, according to a study published in The American Journal of Cardiology.

Torbjørn Omland, MD, from Akershus University Hospital in Norway, and colleagues tested the hypothesis that the presence and severity of erectile dysfunction is associated with greater concentrations of cTnI in the general population. Erectile dysfunction was assessed through a questionnaire in 260 men (aged 30 to 65 years), while cTnI levels were determined by a high-sensitivity assay.
