Dr. Ranjith Ramasamy discusses research evaluating COVID-19 and erectile dysfunction

“I think doctors should be aware that if men do complain of erectile dysfunction after [having] COVID-19 that it could be because of underlying endothelial dysfunction and underlying vasculature issues,” Ramasamy says.

In this interview, Ranjith Ramasamy, MD, discusses the recent World Journal of Men’s Health study, “COVID-19 endothelial dysfunction can cause erectile dysfunction: histopathological, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural study of the human penis,” for which he served as senior author. Ramasamy is an associate professor of urology and director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
