Penile curvature (PC) can be surgically corrected by either corporoplasty or plication techniques. These techniques can be complicated by post-operative: penile shortening, recurrent PC, painful/palpable suture knots and erectile dysfunction.
To compare the response to tiocolchicine and verapamil injection in the plaque of patients with Peyronie's disease.
Prospective, single-blind, randomized study, selecting patients who have presented Peyronie's disease for less than 18 months.
Peyronie's disease (PD) is a superficial fibrosing disorder that causes penile deformity and can interfere with sexual intercourse and reproduction, as well as diminish quality of life. While the exact mechanism of PD is still being investigated, there is likely a genetic component to the predisposition to penile plaque formation.
The aim of this study is to analyze post pubertal results of pre pubertal tunica albuginea plication with non-absorbable sutures in the correction of CPC.
The files of patients who underwent tunica albuginea plication without incision (dorsal/lateral) were retrospectively reviewed.
Peyronie's disease (PD) is an inflammatory disorder characterized by an abnormal collagen deposition in the tunica albuginea of the penis, leading to fibrous and non-compliant plaques that can impede normal erection.
Penile implants and injection of foreign materials have been described in texts like Kama Sutra for more than 1500 years, and are still being practiced around the world. The extent of this practice is unknown, and the documentation available today only scratches the surface.
Previous studies of penile traction therapy (PTT) devices have demonstrated limited/no efficacy when combined with intralesional therapies for Peyronie's disease (PD). Recently, randomized data have demonstrated the efficacy of a novel PTT device, RestoreX, developed in cooperation with the Mayo Clinic, in men with PD.
There is considerable interest in understanding the genetics of erectile dysfunction (ED) and Peyronie's disease (PD) in an effort to identify novel therapeutic and preventative targets. Initial support for a genetic component of ED and PD was derived from familial aggregation studies.
In this study, we aimed to determine the role of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) in the management of Peyronie's disease (PD).
A total of 325 patients suffering from PD were enrolled in this single-arm clinical study.
Since their popularization, genitourinary prosthetics have remained a gold-standard therapy for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and stress urinary incontinence and in cases of testicular loss or dysfunction.
Peyronie's disease (PD) is a fibroproliferative disease of the penis. Since little is known about the molecular pathogenesis of PD, we compared the biochemical make-up of PD plaques with normal tunica albuginea to clarify pathological processes in the scarred tissue.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of collagenase Clostridium histolyticum (CCH) in patients with Peyronie's disease (PD) suffering from atypical deformities.
We retrospectively collected data of patients with atypical penile curvature (PC) secondary to PD.
Congenital penile curvature (CPC) is a rare condition with surgical correction being the standard therapy. In the current study, we report long-term results analyzing the surgical and functional outcomes using a modified Nesbit technique.
To assess patient satisfaction with surgical outcome, body related self-perceptions, self-attitudes of sexuality, and health related quality of life after penile surgery with small intestinal submucosa (SIS) grafting for the treatment of severe Peyronie's disease (PD).
Peyronie's disease (PD) is a debilitating condition of the penis that leads to significant pain, erectile dysfunction, and emotional distress in men. PD is likely underreported due to lack of knowledge of the disease and the absence of well-established available treatments.
Peyronie's disease (PD) is an inflammatory condition of penile tunica albuginea which commonly ends with penile curvature and difficulty in vaginal penetration. Unfortunately, the pathophysiology of PD has not been completely understood.
The study was aimed to assess the presence of actual differences between the objective and the perceived magnitude of a curvature between patients affected by Peyronie's disease (PD) and congenital penile curvature (CPC).
To compare the efficacy and safety of a combined treatment of percutaneous needle tunnelling (PNT) and a modified collagenase Clostridium histolyticum (CCH) protocol (PNT/CCH) vs the modified protocol alone (CCH) in the treatment of Peyronie's disease (PD).
Current penile traction therapy devices have significant limitations, including the need to use them for 3 to 8 hours per day. Given these issues, the novel RestoreX® penile traction therapy device was developed in cooperation with Mayo Clinic.
To evaluate long-term sexual function results following plication surgery for the correction of penile curvature using patient questionnaires.
We performed a single-center, retrospective study in a cohort of patients with Peyronie's disease or congenital penile curvature.
To provide an overview of current approaches to penile reconstructive surgery in Peyronie disease (PD), and to discuss the challenges in restoring normal penile size and function.
A systematic literature search was conducted to identify the published literature relevant to PD and penile reconstructive surgery.
Plaque incision and grafting (PIG) for Peyronie's disease (PD) is not devoid of complications such as erectile dysfunction and penile sensory changes.
To define the rate and chronology of penile sensation loss after PIG surgery and to define predictors of such.
PURPOSE - To evaluate the efficacy, safety and patient satisfaction outcomes following low intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (LiESWT) in men with Peyronie's disease (PD) using a standardised protocol.
Autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) is used increasingly in a variety of settings. PRP injections have been used for decades to improve angiogenesis and wound healing. They have also been offered commercially in urology with little to no data on safety or efficacy.
To examine the safety of collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH) in adult males with penile curvature deformity <30°. Collagenase clostridium histolyticum is indicated for treatment of Peyronie's disease (PD) in adult males with palpable plaque and a penile curvature deformity ≥30° at start of therapy; however, during treatment, patients may receive CCH injections when penile curvature deformity is <30°.
Epigenetic modifications, such as histone acetylation/deacetylation and DNA methylation, play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory disorders and fibrotic diseases. The aim of this study was to study the differential gene expression of histone deacetylases (HDACs) in fibroblasts isolated from plaque tissue of Peyronie's disease (PD) or normal tunica albuginea (TA) and to examine the anti-fibrotic effect of small interfering RNA (siRNA)-mediated silencing of HDAC7 in fibroblasts derived from human PD plaque.
The etiopathogenesis of Peyronie's disease (PD) remains not clearly understood. The most accepted theory attributes the histological lesions of PD to the effects of trauma to the corpora cavernosum of the penis.
Surgical intervention in Peyronie's disease (PD) should ideally be delayed until the resolution of acute inflammatory phase.
The objective of this review was to highlight the results of penile prosthesis to correct refractory erectile dysfunction (ED) in patients with PD, and the secondary procedures that may be required to correct the penile curvature.
Peyronie's disease is characterized by abnormal healing of the tunica albuginea (TA), resulting in the production of a fibrotic plaque that leads to penile curvature and considerable psychological impact.
This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of medical treatment of Peyronie's disease.
A total of 109 patients with Peyronie's disease who had been treated from January 2011 to December 2014 were retrospectively reviewed in this study.
We evaluated the impact of collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH) on rates of diagnosis, treatment, and corporal rupture in Peyronie's disease (PD). We examined the impact of CCH on cost of PD treatment.
To evaluate the postoperative outcome of the multiple slit on plaque plication technique for the treatment of Peyronie's disease.
We retrospectively evaluated 22 patients who underwent plaque incision with penile plication for the surgical treatment of Peyronie's disease, who had failed medical treatment between 2009 and 2014.
Limited data are available on how partners of men with Peyronie's disease (PD) are affected by the disease. We sought to characterize PD patients whose curvatures result in pain for their partners during penetrative intercourse.
