Effect of Tadalafil Administration on Vasodilatation Mediated by Flow in Patients With Obesity Grade I-II

Start date: May 1, 2019
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

Obesity is a public health problem, not only for its high prevalence, but also because of the comorbidities found in it. Within the physiopathological mechanisms associated with obesity is a low-grade inflammatory state that is associated with endothelial dysfunction Endothelial dysfunction is known to be the beginning of the atherosclerotic process that eventually leads to the development of cardiovascular disease. Erectile dysfunction is an example of endothelial dysfunction, where blood flow is compromised as a consequence of a reduction in the production of nitric oxide among others. Tadalafil, which is an inhibitor of PDE-5, is currently used as a treatment for erectile dysfunction. However, it has been observed that the administration of tadalafil in patients with éndothelial dysfunction decreases arterial stiffness, having a positive effect on it, in addition it reduces the pulse pressure, systolic and diastolic pressure.
