Summary or Abstract : Although sildenafil is efficacious in treating ED, use in CHF is relatively contraindicated due to hypotensive concerns. It is proposed that ED, depression and CHF form a reinforcing triad. The purposes were to determine whether treatment of ED with sildenafil in males with moderate CHF would improve depressive symptoms, as well as validation of two depression indices. Thirty-five men were randomized into a 12-week, cross-over trial, comparing sildenafil to placebo. The International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF), Beck Depression Index (BDI), and Center of Epidemiologic Studies-Depression (CES-D) scales were completed at baseline, and after 4 weeks of sildenafil/placebo. ANOVA and Fisher's PSLD were used. Sildenafil was effective in improving the IIEF score (p < 0.0001). This was associated with decrease in BDI (p < 0.005) and CES-D (p < 0.003) scores, which showed 83 concordance. Effective treatment of ED is associated with improvement of depression in patients with moderate CHF. The BDI and CES-D indicated concordance.
