What are the causes of erectile dysfunction?

Penile erection is the result of a neurovascular phenomenon that occurs in a favorable hormonal and psychological environment. Thus, the integrity of all intervening systems is necessary.
The development and maintenance of a normal erection requires the activation of neurological pathways that:

  • Relax the trabecular smooth muscle.
  • Increase blood flow in the corpora cavernosa (through the cavernous arteries).
  • They reduce venous return by collapsing veins and thus allowing erection.
  • Psychogenic – for example, anxiety and depression.
  • Vascular – for example, obstruction of the cavernous arteries.
  • Neurological – for example, the surgical section of the cavernous nerves.
  • Anatomical – for example, the severe curvature of the penis.
  • Hormonal – for example, low testosterone.
