Évaluation du dépistage de la dysfonction érectile en médecine générale (réalisation, modalités, difficultés) et avis sur l’applicabilité d’un algorithme de dépistage

Abstract : Erectile dysfunction is a common pathology. Its screening remains insufficient while its prevalence varies in France between 25% and 45%. Erectile dysfunction of vascular origin is a predictor of cardiovascular events. The general practitioner, being the doctor solicited in first resort, it is necessary for us to detect this symptom in patients at cardiovascular risk. The purpose of this observational study was to determine the proportion of general practitioners in the Ile de France performing erectile dysfunction screening, to collect information on its management and to ask for their opinion on the applicability of a systematic screening algorithm. A questionnaire was sent to the doctors via the LIMESURVEY software which also collected the data and did the statistical analysis. Among 115 physicians surveyed, 76.52% of doctors seek to detect erectile dysfunction but a good proportion does so only rarely or sometimes. This screening is mainly done in diabetic patients and those who have a sexual complaint. The urologist and the cardiologist are asked in the evaluation of erectile dysfunction while the vascular doctor is almost absent. The brakes of this screening are modesty, lack of training, and lack of time. The majority of physicians would accept systematic screening for erectile dysfunction integrated in cardiovascular risk assessment. Awareness campaigns and improvement of medical training on this pathology could improve its screening and management.
