Hi
Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX
WPW is due to altered transmission of electrical wave in the heart. It is not a vascular disease.
Erection is due to jet of blood flow to the penis during sexual stimulatiion.
Erectile problem is mostly psychogenic and some vascular.
WPW is not a peripheral vascular disease and hence there is no direct relation.
Hope this answers ur query. Kindly get back for doubts if any.

Thank you for the answer. However, could be there any indirect relationship at all since all basic tests - cholesterol, blood pressure, testosterone, thyroid - all normal, If WCW results in tachycardia, could faster heart rate have any impact on blood circulation and can electrical signals impact they way the blood is pumped throuhgout the system?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.
If there is erectile problem, the treatment will be independent of the WPW. That is medications need to be given to improve penile blood flow.
Since there is no underlying factor like hypertension or diabetes, treatment should not be complex.
Hope this helps, kindly get back for doubts if any.
