Office Evaluation and Diagnostic Testing for Erectile Dysfunction
In the 1970s, treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED), the preferred term for impotence , was relatively simple. Sex therapy was the treatment of choice for psychogenic ED, and penile prosthesis implantation was the only reasonable treatment option for most men with organic ED. Clinical evaluation of ED was also relatively straightforward: differentiation between psychogenic and organic ED was usually made by taking a detailed sexual and medical history and by performing nocturnal penile tumescence testing.
