Penile Traction Therapy (PTT) is increasingly being recognized as a viable non-surgical approach to Peyronie's Disease (PD). The goal of this article is to review the current literature on PTT with attention to traction protocols, devices, and outcomes. Areas Covered: Literature on the pathophysiology of PD, PTT as primary and adjunctive treatment for PD, perioperative use of PTT, and Vacuum Erection Devices are all reviewed. Pertinent literature was obtained from the PubMed database. The key words: "penile traction," "mechanotransduction," and "Peyronie's Disease" were searched and results were narrowed down based on relevance to the review. Expert Commentary: PTT appears beneficial but the true magnitude of effect is difficult to discern. Most studies are not randomized, have small sample sizes, lack control arms, or have varying traction protocols. Patient compliance is critical and new devices and traction protocols are needed to maximize the benefit of PTT.
