To guage the body mass index (BMI) and lower urinary tract symptom (LUTS) severeness on treatment response to sildenafil of males with erection dysfunction (Male impotence) and reasonable to extreme LUTS connected with not cancerous prostatic hyperplasia.
An article hoc analysis of information from the 12-few days, increase-blind, placebo-managed review of sildenafil (50 milligrams when everyday titrated to 100 mg once day-to-day) was carried out. The BMI groups were overweight (> or Is equal to 30 kilograms/meters(2)), chubby (> or = 25 to < 30 kg/m(2)), and normal weight (< 25 kg/m(2)). ED was defined as a score of < or = 25 on the erectile function domain of the International Index of Erectile Function, and LUTS was defined by an International Prostate Symptom Score of> or = 12. The optimum the urinary system flow charge was resolute by uroflowmetry.
People receiving sildenafil (and = 189) a significant advancement within the erection health site scores of the Intercontinental Index of Erection Health (S < .0001 vs placebo, n = 180), which did not vary across BMI groups. A greater improvement in LUTS score was observed with sildenafil compared with placebo for men with severe LUTS (-8.6 vs -2.4, P < .0001) than in men with moderate LUTS (-3.6 vs -1.7, P = .06). Also, the improvement in LUTS scores was significant (P < or = .02) for men taking sildenafil independent of BMI (obese, -8.9 vs -5.4 overweight, -7.3 vs -3.2 normal weight, -7.1 vs -0.84). No difference was found among the treatment groups in the change from baseline maximal urinary flow rate across all LUTS and BMI categories (range 4.5 to -4.2 mL/s).
The results of our study have shown that daily dosing with sildenafil improved ED and LUTS independent of baseline LUTS severity or BMI.
