oa Professional Nursing Today - Editorial
This is the men's health issue of Professional Nursing Today for 2005 and in this issue we deal with common disorders of the prostate and erectile dysfunction. Patients with erectile dysfunction may have systemic diseases such as diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease (like ischaemic heart disease), cerebrovascular disease (stroke or transient ischaemic incidents), peripheral vascular disease (intermittent claudication) and/or renal disease. They require a thorough general examination by a doctor, and they should be screened for diabetes and these vascular disorders.
