Cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk assessment in men with erectile dysfunction (ED) is a critical component of evaluation of patients in the outpatient setting. A multidisciplinary approach is preferred, and multiple validated instruments have described to help gauge CVD risk. We have reviewed the relationships of ED and cardiovascular health, risk factors, pathogenesis, lifestyle modifications, and medical optimization. Moreover, we also took into consideration biomarkers for cardiovascular health and their relationship with ED and sexual dysfunction. We advocate using ED as risk for future CVD events, and review the current literature for the management of ED and CVD.
