Objective: to evaluate variations in sexual and erectile function in subjects with chronic heart failure (CHF) after optimization of CHF treatment.

Methods: 160 patients men (age range 40-76 years; mean age 60 years), with CHF and erectile dysfunction (ED), were divided two groups, one under syptomatic treatment of ED; were asked all of them to complete the International Index of Erectile Function IIEF-5 before (at baseline) and 3 months after optimization of treatment of CHF.

Results: Among 160 patients studied, 47,3% have an optimal treatment of CHF versus 52,7% have not, more than 60% of patients with optimal treatment of CHF (and without symptomatic treatment of ED) showed significant improvements on the 5 domains of the IIEF-5, compared to 25% of patients without optimal treatment and under symptomatic treatment of ED (the difference was statistically significant).

Conclusion: the results of this study support that optimal treatment of CHF improves erectile function in patient with erectile dysfunction secondary to CHF better than symptomatic treatment alone.
