Erectile dysfunction in older men. Erections mainly involve the blood vessels. And the most common causes of ED in older men are conditions that block blood flow to the penis. These include hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) and diabetes. Another cause may be a faulty vein that lets blood drain too quickly from the penis. Other disorders, as well as hormonal imbalances and certain operations, may also cause ED.
Insertion of a penile prosthesis (implant) (pictured) is an end stage solution when all other treatment options have failed. It involves a surgical procedure through a small incision in the junction between the penis and scrotum. Patients go home the following day if the procedure is uncomplicated, and the prosthesis can be used for sexual intercourse at 6 weeks following the operation. Complication rates are low in centres that conduct the surgery in large numbers. The risk of infection is <2% and over 85% of the devices are still functioning at 10 years.

Sildenafil is available on the NHS to those who meet very strict eligibility criteria and then only in limited amounts. If you meet the criteria you may still wish to buy extra if you find that you are not being prescribed a sufficient quantity.
Psychological causes of ED can include; emotional problems rooted in past sexual abuse, lack of sexual knowledge or even unease with a new relationship; and mental conditions from anxiety to clinical depression.
Exercise does more than improve penile blood flow, however. Staying fit keeps a man’s weight under control, may increase his testosterone levels, and boosts his confidence. It can also reduce depression and anxiety. These factors can affect erections as well as other aspects of sexual health.

Metabolism (breakdown) of vardenafil can be slowed by aging, liver disease, and concurrent use of certain medications (such as erythromycin [an antibiotic], ketoconazole [Nizoral, a medication for fungal/yeast infections], and protease inhibitors [medications used to treat AIDS]). Slowed breakdown allows vardenafil to accumulate in the body and potentially increases the risk for side effects. Therefore, in men over 65 years of age with liver disease, or who are also taking medication(s) that can slow the breakdown of vardenafil, the doctor will initiate vardenafil at low doses to avoid its accumulation. For example, men taking erythromycin or ketoconazole should not take more than 5 mg of vardenafil in 24 hours; men taking high doses of ketoconazole (Nizoral) should not take more than 2.5 mg of vardenafil in 24 hours; men with moderately severe liver disease also should not take more than a 5 mg dose of vardenafil within 24 hours; men taking the protease inhibitor (for the treatment of HIV/AIDS) indinavir (Crixivan) should not take more than 2.5 mg of vardenafil in 24 hours; and men taking another protease inhibitor ritonavir (Norvir), erythromycin, or ketoconazole, should not take more than 2.5 mg of vardenafil every 72 hours.
