Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Allen D. Seftel, MD (Case Western Reserve University)
Description: This well rounded book looks at a new and exciting area of sexual medicine as it relates to the heart and to heart disease. The 18 chapters cover a breadth of sexual medicine and heart disease issues.
Purpose: This book is intended to review the topic of erectile dysfunction from a cardiac standpoint. This is a very important area that is both timely and under-served. The book has exceeded the authors' objectives.
Audience: Although not explicitly stated, this book appears to be written for the practicing clinician. Urologists, cardiologists, and primary care specialists are the main audience for this book. The authors are all highly qualified, well respected authorities in their specific areas.
Features: The topics covered in this book are germane to sexual medicine and cardiovascular disease. There are specific chapters on sildenanfil and its mechanism of action, the importance of phosphodiesterase inhibition to the cardiovascular tree, sexual activity and cardiovascular disease, as well as cardiovascular effects of the phosphodiesterase inhibitors. The book is heavy on text. Additional tables, graphs and figures would be welcome.
Assessment: This is the first book of its kind. Dr Kloner and colleagues deserve credit for bringing this important topic to the forefront.
