What do I need to know about erectile dysfunction and vascular disease?

ANSWER

Usually, a vascular disease happens when cholesterol and other substances build up and block blood vessels. They lower blood flow to organs such as the heart, brain, and kidneys. If they cut blood flow to the penis, they can make it hard to get or keep an erection. Vascular disease may cause half or more cases of erectile dysfunction in men.
