Objective: To analyze the association between sexual function of men with spinal cord injury with possible predictive factors for dysfunction.
Condition or disease
Male Sexual DysfunctionSpinal Cord Injury
Other: using questionnaires - International Index Erectile Function
Method: Observational study (CAAE 41221414.5.0000.5208) conducted with 45 men, mean age 34 (CI 31.5 to 37.1), with spinal cord injury and active sex life. Sexual function was assessed by the International Index of Erectile Function and level and degree of injury were determined following the guidelines of the International Standards for Neurological and Functional Examination Classification of Spinal Cord Injury. Descriptive statistical techniques were applied and multivariate analysis using logistic regression adjusted to observe the association between factors, with 0.05 significance level.
