Nonsurgical Treatment of Peyronie's Disease: Experts Review the Latest Research
ISSM Session Planned for WAS Congress in May 2017
Studies suggest a "promising future" for nonsurgical management of Peyronie's disease, according to a recent review in the World Journal of Men's Health.
Based on 2015 guidelines issued by the American Urological Association, the authors covered several treatment approaches, including oral and topical therapies, intralesional injections, traction, and extracorporeal shock wave treatment. Stem cell research was also discussed.
Many therapies, such as alternatives to intralesional collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCh - Xiaflex) still need more study, the authors noted.
“Overall, PD remains a challenging disease to treat, but the abundance of recent trials and experiments suggest a promising future for the nonsurgical treatment of PD,” they wrote.
