Conditions: Erectile Dysfunction

Erection Hardness Score

These results led the authors to suggest that the EHS be considered carefully when used for clinical follow-up with post-prostatectomy patients using injections for ED.

“Despite being simple and easily repeated, its use for clinical follow-up should rather complement than replace more comprehensive scales like the [15-item IIEF], given its limited responsiveness to changes over a 1-year follow-up and the conceptual nature of the instrument strictly focused toward erection hardness while evaluation of sexual rehabilitation should ideally be multidimensional,” they wrote.

The study was first published online in May in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.
