This appears to be an ad for a penile traction device but it might serve as an intro to a useful discussion. I've deleted the references to a specific product and added a few annotations here and there.
How is Peyronie’s Disease Treated?
SURGERY - XIAFLEX - <Penile Traction Device>
In a very few number of cases (about
13 out of 100), Peyronie's disease goes away without being treated. Many health care experts suggest treating the disease without surgery for the first 12 months after the disease is first noticed.
Men with small plaques, not much curving of the penis, no pain, and no problems with sex may not need to be treated. If you need to be treated, there are 3 choices.
1 Surgery for Peyronie's Disease : There are 3 basic ways to fix Peyronie's disease with surgery, but Surgery is not without risks and can include shortening of the penis (scar retraction) and a chance that the distortion will return. COST: <Big number deleted.>
-making the side of the penis opposite the plaque shorter
-making the side of the penis that curves longer
-placing a prosthetic device inside the penis
2 Penile Injections ( XIAFLEX® ) COST: 2 vials <Middlin' big number deleted.>
Injecting a drug right into the plaque brings higher doses of the drug to the problem than when a drug is taken by mouth. ( ?! Xiaflex is never taken by mouth.)
Plaque injection is often used for men with acute phase disease who aren't sure they want to have surgery. The skin is often numbed before the shot to reduce pain. (He mentions pain to skeeze you out about this option because he is selling someone else.)
Injection of CCG (Collagenase clostridium histolyticum?)
into collagen-containing structures such as the corpora cavernosa of the penis may result in damage to those structures and possible injury such as corporal rupture. Treatment of Peyronie's disease with intralesional therapy: Injection of collagenase is contraindicated in the treatment of Peyronie’s plaques that involve the penile urethra due to potential risk to this structure and in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to collagenase used in any other therapeutic application or application method. Injection of collagenase into collagen-containing structures such as the corpora cavernosa of the penis may result in damage to those structures and possible injury such as corporal rupture (penile fracture). (All true enough but more skeezing.)
3 <Penile Traction Device>
COST: <Relatively small number deleted.>
Treatment of Peyronie's disease with penile traction therapy (<Penile Traction Device>
). Penile traction therapy (PTT) is used to avoid penis shortening after prostate surgery, which can be used as penile rehab. it would be an effective and safe method Without expensive risky surgery or injections.(Probably true. Odd wording, though, and cut-and-paste problems.) <Some company>
, a urology laboratory which has been investigating medical, non-invasive treatments to Peyronie’s disease, micr
openis, post radical prostatectomy penile rehab and erectile dysfunction for 20 years. (Not a sentence. No verb.) <Penile Traction Device>
is a simple, effective and non-invasive treatment of the correction of penile curvature. <Penile Traction Device>
reduces the curvature of the penis + 50%. <Penile Traction Device>
increases the length of the penis and also the girth.(Dubious numbers but there have been studies that found penile traction helpful.)
