Peyronie's disease: Review of nonsurgical treatment options - Abstract

Department of Urology, Rush University Medical Center, 1725 West Harrison Street, Suite 352, Chicago, IL 60612, USA.


The purpose of this article is to review the contemporary literature on nonsurgical therapies for Peyronie's disease (PD); focus on randomized, placebo-controlled trials; and review the latest guidelines for the management of PD from the International Consultation on Sexual Medicine. A combination of oral agents or intralesional injection with traction therapy may provide a synergy between the chemical effects of the drugs and the mechanical effects of traction. Until a reliable treatment emerges, some of the nonsurgical treatments discussed can be used to stabilize the scarring process and may result in some reduction of deformity with improved sexual function.
