To analyze the literature on the current treatment options for Peyronie's disease (PD).

Intracavernosal injection therapy using collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH) has been widely adopted since its FDA approval in 2013.

Based on the current evidence, it appears to be moderately efficacious for men with mild curvatures. Although a recent study has shown similar outcomes using a modified protocol requiring fewer injections, CCH remains an expensive medication. Surgery provides the most definitive treatment. The most common adverse effect following surgery is perceived loss of length. Length restoration procedures have recently been developed to address this with promising results reported in small series. There are a variety of medical treatment options for PD, with CCH getting the most attention for being the first drug to be FDA approved for PD treatment. It is the authors' opinion that the non-surgical therapy most likely to provide meaningful results is combination therapy utilizing oral, intralesional, and external traction therapy. Surgery remains the gold standard for definitive treatment.
