Stents for Mr. Floppy?

UPDATE 1-Medtronic to study stent in erectile dysfunction | Stocks | Reuters.

The study is intended for men who have not responded well to PDE5 inhibitors such as Viagra, Cialis and Levitra.

I figured that was just Nature’s way of saying, “Throw in the towel Rock!”

I can see the PMH now…

65 y/o male, history of coronary artery disease with coronary stents x3 and pelvic stents x2, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes, erectile dysfunction (resolved)…

or answers on the MRI checklist…

Uh, yeah, I got them stent thingies in my hips or something ’cause I couldn’t get it up no more and Vigara didn’t work…

I mean, really, let’s handle the hard, err..difficult topics in medicine: depression, hair loss and ED.  Got to have your priorities in the right place!

h/t to Dr. Wes



    1. Worked with a crusty NP in the county jail when I was a student and that was exactly what she would say to the prisoners with HTN…take care of it or you’ll never get it up. Seemed to work.
