Poor Penis Blood Flow Linked to Heart Attack and Stroke

Erectile dysfunction is an early warning sign of heart attack and stroke. Greek researchers, in a study of men with high blood pressure, found that reduced blood flow velocity in the penis was also a good predictor of cardiovascular events such as heart attack and stroke. They measured penile blood flow velocity in men with high blood pressure but with no known cardiovascular disease. Low penile blood flow was a significant predictor of heart attack that was independent of high blood pressure and low testosterone levels. Measuring blood flow velocity in the penis is a simple, noninvasive test that could predict future catastrophic cardiac events. (Journal of Hypertension, 34: 860-868, 2016)
