Penile surgery for patients with Peyronie's disease initially treated with collagenase clostridium histolyticum or surgery: a claims database analysis.

Collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH) is an injectable therapy targeting collagen present in penile plaques in Peyronie's disease (PD). Data comparing CCH to penile surgery are limited, and long-term therapeutic outcomes are unknown. This retrospective analysis used a US claims database (January 2014-June 2017) to determine the percentage of men with subsequent penile surgery among those who initially received CCH (n = 1227) or surgery (index treatment; n = 620) for PD. Eligible patients were aged ≥18 years with continuous enrollment ≥6 months before and ≥12 months after index treatment date. During 12 months of post-index treatment follow-up, fewer patients with PD initially treated with CCH (4.6% [56/1227]) had subsequent penile surgery versus those initially treated with penile surgery (10.3% [64/620]; p < 0.0001). Mean ± SD time to first subsequent surgery after initial PD treatment was longer in the CCH versus surgery cohort (7.7 ± 3.0 vs 1.7 ± 3.2 months). The likelihood of subsequent surgery varied by initial surgery type: 18.2% after plaque incision or excision with grafting; 11.6% after penile implant; and 8.2% after tunical plication. Patients with PD who received CCH first were less likely to undergo subsequent surgery compared with those who received surgery first within a 12-month post-treatment follow-up.
