The pelvic floor muscles are normally active in erectile function. Therefore, it is assumed that weak pelvic floor muscles cause erectile dysfunction and on the other hand, normal function of pelvic floor muscles in penile blood supply and erectile function plays an important role.
Aim: The aim of the present study was to compare the efficacy of oral Tadalafil and neuromuscular biofeedback of pelvic floor muscles along with oral Tadalafil in the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men.
Methodology: The sample consisted of 60 men with erectile dysfunction, with a mean age of 43.66 years, referred to the Agape Sexual Disorders Center in Tehran and Sarem Hospital. Of these, 30 patients were randomly assigned to the intervention group and were treated with neuromuscular biofeedback for 5 weeks and took 5 mg of Tadafil daily, and 30 patients as a control group used 5 mg of Tadafil daily. Evaluation was performed by interview and clinical examination, as well as International Erectile Performance Index Questionnaire (IIEF5).
Results: In the fifth week after treatment, both intervention and control groups showed a significant difference (P<0.001) in increasing the score of the International Erectile Performance Index (IIEF5) from pre-test to post-test. But only in the intervention group, the increase in pelvic floor muscle strength was significant (P<0.001). On the other hand, there was a significant difference between the two groups in erectile function and pelvic floor muscle strength.
Conclusion: Based on the findings of the study, it can be concluded that neuromuscular biofeedback in combination with Tadalafil is an effective treatment for men with erectile dysfunction.
