  • Erectile dysfunction after HAE correlates with significant reduction in PBI. Severe pelvic ischemic symptoms are more likely to occur after bilateral HAE, which should be avoided if possible. Moreover, patients with diseased PFA are at risk of development of pelvic ischemia after HAE. Our data suggest a potential role of concomitant profundapalsty at the time of aortic endografting to improve pelvic collateral flow and reduce pelvic ischemia in this subset of patients with HAE.
