Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate erectile function in males undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) while on two different adrenoceptor beta-blocker regimens, namely nebivolol and metoprolol. We hypothesize that the negative effects of cardiopulmonary bypass on erectile function may be possibly attenuated by preferring a vasodilating selective beta(1)-blocker, nebivolol, to metoprolol as an anti-ischemic and antiarrhythmic agent in males undergoing CABG.
