Impotence
 
Standard Definition

Men who suffer from impotence, or erectile dysfunction, are unable to attain or sustain an erection sufficient for intercourse. It can be a persistent condition, however almost half of all men experience impotence occasionally. It is believed that only 5% of all men who experience impotence seek help for it.

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

Impotence may be due to emotional or psychological difficulties, however the majority of cases are now believed to be due to problems with blood flow to the penis. The small arteries of the penis are approximately the same size as those of the heart and are similarly susceptible to the effects of atherosclerosis. Thickening and 'clogging' of these vessels prevents proper blood engorgement of the penis and therefore the ability to attain an erection. Some drugs, including cigarettes, can contribute to this process.
