This review covers the possible treatment modalities of organic erectile dysfunction (ED). About 30% of men over 40 years of age suffer from ED. At diagnosis, organic ED should be distinguished from psychological ED, and it is crucial to identify underlying diseases including endocrine disorders, neurological problems and cardiovascular diseaplase. Management of organic ED is initiated by treating such underlying problems, and lifestyle changes are central. Symptomatic treatments include tablets, injections, intraurethral medication, vacuum pumps, and penile implants. Current research focuses on regenerative medicine, which may play a future role.
