The study by Vigen et al. retrospectively compared rates of death, myocardial infarction, and stroke from a dataset of 8,709 men who had undergone coronary angiography with prior documentation of serum T concentration <300 ng/dL; however, credibility of this article is deeply compromised by major errors, and subsequent attempts to correct, in values presented [60]. It cannot be overemphasized, therefore, that prospective data from large, well-designed, long-term trials of TTh in hypertensive males without clinical atherosclerosis are warranted.

In fact, several preclinical and clinical studies report beneficial outcomes on the sexual function by ACEi and ARB treatment [45–53]. In a hypertension-induced ED rat model, captopril treatment normalized both the blood pressure and erectile response, completely restoring the impaired erectile function [46]. Accordingly, in a rat model of diabetes-induced ED, losartan treatment markedly improved the erectile response [47]. Additionally, in a mouse model of hypercholesterolemia-induced ED, both telmisartan and ramipril (ARBs and ACEi respectively) restored the impaired cavernosal endothelial function by reducing the oxidative stress and normalizing the endothelial nitric oxide synthase expression [48].
