  Purpose

This study is being conducted in US to obtain information on the efficacy, safety, and duration of erection of flexible-dose regime of vardenafil compared to placebo (dummy medication with no pharmacological activity), in patients with co-morbid factors associated with erectile dysfunction (also called impotence). The duration of erection endpoint will be assessed by patient utilized stopwatch timings during each attempt at sexual intercourse. Elevated levels of total cholesterol or low levels of HDL may result in atherosclerosis and induce erectile dysfunction. Vardenafil (Levitra) is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. While there is no intent to assess the effect vardenafil has on blood lipids, the study will provide prospective data on men diagnosed with both ED and dyslipidemia.
