Of the patients that were considered in the stable phase of PD, 42 patients presented with atypical PD. These 42 patients were then divided into the 4 different categories: 32 with indentation, 14 with multiplanar curvature, 10 with ventral curvature, and 10 with an hourglass deformity; patients were counted multiple times if they fell into more than one category. Of the 42 patients, only 31 pursued treatment with XIAFLEX® being the most popular treatment of choice.
Dr. El-Khatib continued by outlining the treatment options presented to the patients: XIAFLEX®, PEG, Plication, and IPP. All of these treatments were successful except for 1 penile fracture that required surgical repair. For both indentation and hourglass deformities, patients preferred to be treated with XIAFLEX®.
In this cohort of patients, Dr. El-Khatib emphasizes the fact that atypical patients with PD, make up the majority of patients (56.8%) and the results of this study had outcomes similar to the IMPRESS trials, which looked at typical PD patients.
