Physicians should consider whether their patients with underlying NAION risk factors could be adversely affected by use of PDE5 inhibitors. Individuals who have already experienced NAION are at increased risk of NAION recurrence.

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.

Meanwhile, PDE-5 (phosphodiesterase-5) is a chemical that the body releases to signal that it’s time for the erection to end. PDE-5 inhibitors slow the activity of PDE-5, allowing the NO activity to continue, bringing forth an erection.
