Men with Peyronie’s disease usually seek medical attention because of the painful erections, penile deformity, or difficulty with intercourse. Treatments for Peyronie’s disease include surgical and non-surgical options such as oral medicines, injections, devices (stretchers).
Non-Surgical treatment alternatives for Peyronie’s disease
Because of the serious risks, low correction rates and high costs involved, surgical treatment for Peyronie’s disease is quickly becoming the last option for the same. Today, new and advance treatment modalities have been tried over a period of time.
These include vitamin E in tablet or cream form, potassium aminobenzoate (a chemical that belongs to the Vitamin B group and is used to break down hard, fibrous skin), medicines (colchicines and tamoxifen), extracorporeal shock wave therapy, radiation therapy, interferons and quite recently, the use of external penis stretchers. Out of all these alternative options, penis stretchers (or extenders) have emerged as the most promising treatment option because of their high successful rate, long-lasting impact and safety.
Strong scientific evidence supports the benefits of penis extenders in Peyronie’s disease
The most unique fact about the successful use of penis extenders in the treatment of Peyronie’s disease is that, unlike other natural / alternative methods of supplements, their use has been documented, established and recommended by several clinical trials and studies. In one of such study which was presented in the 2nd European Congress of Andrology (September 2002), the efficacy of mechanical penile stretching (PS) to reduce penile deformity during erection was tested.
The study was done in Italy on ten patients affected by Peyronie’s disease, apparently unchanged at least for the latest 3 months and with penile curvature during erection (PEC). Measurements were performed before and after daily home penile stretching application (at least four hours / day) for 3 to 6 months. As a result, penile curvature during erection was significantly and successfully decreased after 3 months.
Also, the treatment was well tolerated (no severe complication and no patient drop outs occurred). The results suggested a promising use of penile stretchers in selected Peyronie’s patients affected by penile curvature without erectile dysfunction.
Based on the above study and many other observations, sexperts now confidently recommend the use of penile stretchers as one of the most effective non-surgical solutions for the treatment of Peyronie’s disease and penile curvatures. While surgery is still an option, it is often associated with a high risk of complications, more costs and other problems.
Penis extenders, on the other hand, provide men with a self-administered cure for Peyronie’s disease. They not only help treat Peyronie’s disease, but also cause significant increase in size of the penis (both length and girth) and significantly enhance sexual performance & pleasure for both partners.
