Surgery To Correct Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s Disease And Surgery

Surgery to cure or treat Peyronie'e disease or bent penisPeyronie’s disease is condition that affects approximately 1% of the adult male population.

Its exact cause is largely unknown but is characterised by plaque or hard lump that form along one side of the penis shaft.

The plaque develops on the upper or lower side of the penis in layers containing erectile tissue. It begins as a localized inflammation and can develop into a hardened scar causing extreme discomfort.

Not all penile curvatures are symptomatic of Peyronie’s, a bent or curved penis is incredibly common.

A penile curvature is not necessarily painful – it is the plague or hard fibrous tissue under the skin that causes the discomfort and can make sexual intercourse extremely painful.

Although Peyronie’s was first coined Peyroinie’s over 200 years ago doctors treat the disease on a case by case basis – there does not seem to a standard procedure.

The two most common treatments are surgery and traction.

More about Traction To Correct Peyronie’s

The medical profession usually recommend surgery only in long-term cases when the disease has stabilized and the deformity is preventing sexual intercourse.

Surgery is the quickest way to correct a curvature or Peyronie’s but also the most likely to cause complication. Over half of penile correction operation are successful, which means that just under half are not.

A GP or doctor will suggest that a sufferer waits 1 to 2 years before any corrective surgery is carried out. During that wait, patients are often advised alternative treatments (such as traction) a high proportion of patients discover that the condition has corrected itself with a non surgical procedure.

Time is the biggest factor – a surgical procedure is extremely quick and can take weeks to fully recover, whereas using a traction device can take several months.

Experimental Treatments

Some researchers have given vitamin E orally to patients in small-scale studies and have reported improvements. Although no controlled studies have established any firm connection between vitamin E and Peyronie’s.

Similar inconclusive studies have been documented using an oral application of para-aminobenzoate, a substance belonging to the family of B-complex molecules.

Researchers have injected chemical agents such as verapamil, collagenase, steroids, calcium channel blockers, and interferon alpha-2b directly into the penis in the area where the plague is thickest.

Radio Therapy Treatment

Radiation therapy, in which high-energy rays are aimed at the plaque have aslo been trialed.  Like some of the alternative chemical based treatments, radiation appears to reduce pain, but it has no effect at all on the plaque itself and can present the patient with more problems than it solves.

Peyronie’s Disease Surgery

The most traumatic of the medical procedures is invasive surgery.

The two most common surgical procedures are

  • The removal of the plague by scraping – this though can involve partial loss of erectile function, especially rigidity.
  • The placement of a patch of skin or artificial material, and removal or pinching of tissue from the side of the penis opposite the plaque, which cancels out the bending effect. This is known as the Nesbit Procedure and can decrease the size of the erect penis.

Peyronie’s Disease Surgery Costs

Costs can vary from doctor to doctor and from clinic to clinic – if you did entertain the idea of surgery you should budget for a cost of at least £2000.

Any kind of non life threatening surgery should be carefully considered especially a procedure on your most delicate and valuable bodily asset.

Peyronie’s Disease Bent Penis

Peyronie’s Disease – Penile Curvature

Peyronie's disease Bent PenisPeyronie’s Disease, or Peyronies syndrome is a severe curvature of the penis that occurs during an erection.

Penile curvature, or a bend in the penis is not overly common but does effect approximately 1% (one in every hunddred) of the male population worldwide.

Peyronie’s suffers often avoid seeking treatment because of the obvious embarrassment factor and so this figure may be much higher.

Although penile curvature has afflicated men since the begining of time it was only coined Peyronie’s disease in the mid 17th century.

An Italian Physicain named Francois de la Peyronie was the first to document the condition.

Are All Penile Curvatures Symptomatic Of Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s best discribes a severe almost angular bend – a slight curve is not neccessarily Peyronie’s disease.

A large percentage of the male population are thought have a slight curvature to the penile shaft.

What Are The Causes And Symptoms Of Peyronie’s Disease

What causes a curve in the penisPeyronie’s is not a hereditary defect from birth, it is usually acquired and effects men approaching middleage.

Although a male can be born with a slight curve in the penis this is not normally Peyronie’s disease.

The causes can be quite varied – possible factors could include a small scar or injury that forms inside of the penis, which gradually transforms into a hard lump, or plaque.

A thickened area under the skin is usually formed in the soft spongy erectile tissue.

In some cases, symptoms may appear overnight, while in others it may take several months.

Ageing increases the risk as a general reduction in elasticity of the body’s tissues increases the chances of injury.

If the damaged area is slow to heal, the plaque undergoes fibrosis, or formation of tough fibrous tissue, and even calcification (formation of calcium deposits) resulting in a long-term problem.

What Can Be Done To Treat Peyronie’s Disease

Nowadays, a severe curvature of the penis, Peyronie’s or otherwise, is not a condition that has to be suffered indefinately, there are treatments available; some drastic and not to be recommended and some not so drastic that require simple application or vitamins.

Corrective Penile Surgery

Surgery should be a last resort treatment and only for conditions that are extremely severe.

The succes rate for penile surgery is not encouraging and often a patient can leave surgery with additional complications.

It is estimated that over 50% of men who have had corrective surgery on their most valued asset have not been fully satisfied with the results.

There are many instances where the sufferer has lost sensitivity in their penis and many other cases where impotency has been a direct result of surgery.

Permenant damage is high risk factor. Surgery is not recommended. More about Penis Surgery

Penis Traction Device

A penis traction device  is the most commonly used non evasive method for starightening any kind of penile curvature or bend in the penis.

A traction or stretching device exercises the penis and surrounding penis tissue allowing blood to flow more evenly into the corpora cavernosa.

can a penis traction device cure Peyronie's diseasePenis traction devices are extremely affordable, discreet and simple to use.

The success rate for correcting a bend or curve is approximately 70%.

There is no need to suffer the discomfort, embarrassment and pyschological issues that a penile curvature can cause.
