Viagra Improves Heart Function, Finds Study

Viagra doesn't only help in boosting a man's performance in the bedroom, but as researchers have also found, it can also help improve heart function .

This finding means that the popular drug prescribed for erectile dysfunction can potentially save the lives of people with specific heart problems.

The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Alberta who are now encouraging doctors to consider prescribing the drug when a patient has a failing right ventricle of the heart, a dire condition for which there are currently no treatments available.

Dr. Jayan Nagendran, a cardiac surgery resident at the U of A and the first author of the paper, said that the finding was important as Viagra can be clinically and immediately relevant to help these patients.

"Sometimes the right ventricle can fail rapidly and even result in death, like in lung transplant surgery, for example. In such a case, Viagra may increase the right ventricle's performance and save the patient," Dr Nagendran added.

Dr. Evangelos Michelakis, a U of A cardiologist, the Canada Research Chair in Pulmonary Hypertension and the senior author of the paper, said that another reason boffins were thrilled with the results of the study was because whiel there are a number of drugs and therapies available to treat the left ventricle of the heart from failing or afterwards, there are no current treatments for the right ventricle.

"We have a number of drugs and therapies available to treat the left ventricle of the heart to prevent it from failing or to treat it after it has failed, but we don't have anything for the right ventricle. The phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors, wh
