Causes of Peyronie’s Disease
Trauma is one of the main indicators when it comes to Peyronie’s Disease. In the case of trauma multiple things can happen to the penis. This can include sex, masturbation and friction during penetration. Diseases can also be a cause for penis curvature. Some diseases can cause the breakdown of normal tissue in the penis. Diabetes for example breaks down collagen which in turn causes hardening in the penis. In addition, some medications have Peyronie’s Disease listed as a possible side effect.
Historical Treatments for Peyronie’s Disease
There are different treatments out there that have been used to try and treat Peyronie’s such as: Vitamin E, Radiation, Verapamil, Collagenase (Xiaflex), Interferon, Traction Devices, Iontophoresis, Surgery, Implants, Topical Applications and Herbal Remedies. Some of the more popular treatments include Verapamil, Collagenase, Surgery & Implants. Verapamil is injected directly into the plaque built up in the penis. This helps to soften this plaque as it will hopefully breakdown. Collagenase is another injectable method usually done with the popular medication Xiaflex. Xiaflex is used only when the original curve is greater than 30 degrees. Surgery is used to completely remove the buildup of plaque within the penis but this is a last resort method. Peyronie’s Disease Surgery can have serious complications and side effects such as shortening of the penis and ED. Implants are another method to try and fix Peyronie’s Disease that involved surgery. Once again the complications and side effects are great and men should consider every other option before going down this road.
