Hyperhomocysteinemia may contribute to the development of endothelial dysfunction and, consequently, atherosclerosis, a systemic disease involving the vessels that may affect the cavernous arteries leading to vasculogenic erectile dysfunction. Our study aims therefore to explore the relationship between homocysteine levels and velocimetric parameters detected by basal penile duplex ultrasound such as peak systolic velocity and flaccid penile acceleration in patients with erectile dysfunction.
Homocysteine levels correlate with velocimetric parameters in patients with erectile dysfunction undergoing penile duplex ultrasound / Salvio, Gianmaria; Ciarloni, Alessandro; Cordoni, Simone; Cutini, Melissa; Muti, Nicola Delli; Finocchi, Federica; Firmani, Francesca; Giovannini, Lara; Perrone, Michele; Balercia, Giancarlo. - In: ANDROLOGY. - ISSN 2047-2927. - 10:4(2022), pp. 733-739.
