Correlations between increased erection hardness and improvements in emotional well-being and satisfaction outcomes in men treated with sildenafil citrate for erectile dysfunction.
Int J Impot Res. 2007 Jul-Aug; 19(4):398-406.IJ

Abstract

To explore relationships between erection hardness and other outcomes in men with erectile dysfunction (ED). Pooled analyses were conducted on 27 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials and six open-label trials from the worldwide sildenafil database. Outcomes included erection hardness graded subjectively, hardness and sexual satisfaction questions from the International Index of Erectile Function, general and sexually-specific emotional well-being from the self-esteem and relationship questionnaire, and the erectile dysfunction inventory of treatment satisfaction. Hardness outcomes improved (with a possible dose-response relationship for the achievement of fully hard and rigid erections) and correlated positively with the other outcomes. Sildenafil 100 mg produced optimal erection hardness (fully hard and rigid erections) in a substantial proportion of men with ED. Because optimal erection hardness correlated positively with some emotional well-being and satisfaction outcomes, sildenafil 100 mg may be the most appropriate dosage for treatment of ED for most men.
