Pelvic steal syndrome is a condition where the blood is shunted away from the penis due to the need for extra blood in the larger muscles of the lower back and buttocks.  This can sometimes account for the difficulty in maintaining erections in some men when they stand, but it usually isn't an issue when lying down.

It doesn't usually require any treamtent.  If you have further questions, you may want to check with your lcoal physician.
