Role of device-based therapy in correcting Peyronie’s disease
Use of stretchers or extenders
Peyronie’s disease (PD) was named after the French physician Francois de la Peyronie in 1741. His original description was something like “preventing them from having normal ejaculation of semen”. The disease is currently thought to affect between 3 and 9% of adult men, typically in the fifth to sixth decades of life. Overall, its prevalence appears to be rising, though this may be due to the fact that more men are seeking treatment for erectile dysfunction and hence visit the doctor who diagnoses the PD as well.
Signs & symptoms
Patients affected with PD typically present with three, occasionally simultaneous, chief complaints:
? A palpable plaque
? A painful erection, and/or
? Penile curvature: Which can, in fact, be so severe in that it interferes with the ability to engage in sexual intercourse
Treatment of Peyronie’s disease
A variety of medical (i.e., nonsurgical) treatments have been tried to correct or cure PD. However, each of such treatments has its own share of weaknesses. Surgery, for example is often considered (although wrongly) as the only option that could “cure” the disease completely. However, studies have shown that surgery has not been found to completely cure or eradicate the problem in all 100% cases. Similarly, other options such as vitamin E supplements, oral POTABA, some local injections such as interferons and even radiotherapy have also been tested but none of such methods is considered completely safe and effective.
Role of device-based therapy in PD
Only recently, medical science & scientific research have unveiled a promising option in the form of “device-based” treatment that offers enormous health benefits in the treatment of various male sexual health disorders including PD.
A “device-based therapy” typically refers to the use of certain specific devices such as penis extenders or stretchers that are worn regularly for some period of time to naturally prevent or correct various structural or functional deformities of penis.
How do such devices work in PD?
Penis extenders, such as those offered by SizeGenetics, are now considered as one of the easiest approaches in the treatment of abnormal penis curve. They work on the principle of traction, stretching the side of the penis that has the scar tissue so that it matches the other side. A penis extender device will also keep your penis stretched out straight for long periods of time and slowly correct its curvature (similar to wearing braces to straighten out teeth).
Is there any scientific evidence?
Successful role of using SizeGenetics penis extenders has been documented and proved in a number of clinical trials. For example, to evaluate to role of penis extenders in the treatment of Peyronie’s disease, a clinical study was carried out by the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. The research established positive results from a study into the use of mechanical extenders to treat curvature of the penis (Peyronie’s disease). That study found that “significant (10-45 degrees) improvement in curvatures is achievable” and that extender use was an effective first option for treating Peyronie’s disease. It also led to significant improvement in other related symptoms of PD such as penis pain and scar formation.
For the same reason, sexperts now confidently recommend the use of penile extenders (e.g. SizeGenetics stretchers) as one of the most effective non-surgical solutions for both the prevention and treatment of Peyronie’s disease.
