Dr. R. Clay Williams, our board-certified urologist specializing in low testosterone treatment, provides valuable insights regarding the Cardiovascular Safety of Testosterone-Replacement Therapy Study, the largest randomized placebo-controlled trial in hypogonadal men to date:

  • Among middle aged or older men with hypogonadism, who had a history of established CV disease or who were at high risk for incident CV events, TRT for a mean duration of 22 months did not increase the risk of major CV events
  • TTh improved hypogonadal symptoms and sexual desire, but not erectile function, compared to placebo
  • TTh does not increase the risk of high grade prostate cancer or LUTS compared to placebo

These findings provide a positive outlook on the safety and benefits of testosterone-replacement therapy for men with hypogonadism and cardiovascular risk, assuring patients of its effectiveness in addressing symptoms without compromising cardiovascular health. Learn more by reading the article.
