dc.description.abstractThe estimated prevalence of impotence in western societies approximates 7% . A retrospective descriptive study was performed on 282 Icelandic males (mean age 53.5 years, range 19-79) referred for evaluation of impotence during the period 1986—1991. Diagnostic modalities included measurements of nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT) and penilebrachial index (PBI), hormonal profile and cavernosography. In 55% the NPT was abnormal. In contrast, only 8.2% of PBI was abnormally low. By logistic regres¬sion abnormal NPT results correlated with increasing age. Measurements of hormonal profile was per¬formed in 73.4% of the patients. Testosterone was found to be below normal in 12.1%. However, primary or secondary hypogonadism was only found in 3.9% and elevated prolactin in 2.8%. By cavernosography, venous leakage was demonstrated in 3.2% of the men and subsequently ligation of the dorsal penile vein was performed. A trial of testosterone treatment was given in 39.4% of the patients. Impotence is a common complaint among men. Psychological factors predominate in young men and the contribution of somatic etiologic factors increases with age. In the majority of patients relatively simple studies can give useful information on the etiology of impotence.
dc.description.abstractTalið er að um 7% karla séu getulausir og eykst tíðnin með hækkandi aldri. Hérlendis hafa engar rannsóknir farið fram á orsökum getuleysis, en kyngeturannsóknir hófust 1986. Farið var yfir gögn 282 karla, sem vísað var til kyngeturannsókna á árunum 1986-1991 vegna kvartana um getuleysi. Meðalaldur karlanna var 53,5 ár (19-79 ára). Niðurstöður blóðþrýstingsmælinga á getnaðarlimi, næturrismælinga, hormónamælinga og sérhæfðra röntgenrannsókna voru kannaðar. Meirihluta karlanna (55%) reyndist hafa óeðlilegt næturrispróf og þar með getuleysi sem taldist vera af líkamlegum orsökum. Tæplega tíundi hluti (8,2%) var með óeðlilega lagan blóðþrýsting í aðrennslisæðum getnaðarlims. Hjá 12,1% karlanna var testósterón lækkað, en merki um vanstarfsemi heiladinguls eða kynkirtla fannst hjá 3,9%. Hjá 2,8% mældist hækkað prólaktín. Bláæðaleki greindist hjá 3,2% karlanna og fóru þeir allir í aðgerð. Hækkandi aldur var sterkasti áhættuþáttur getuleysis af líkamlegum toga. Getuleysi er algeng kvörtun meðal karla. Í mörgum tilvikum er unnt að komast nær orsökum þess með einföldum rannsóknum og byggja ákvarðanir um meðferð á niðurstööum þeirra.
