REVIEW pharmacotherapy Peyronie's disease


Peyronie's disease - is a local idiopathic fibrosis developing in the tunica of the penis, which subsequently leads to a curvature of the penis and sexual dysfunction. Therapy is conducted in the chronic stage, or stage of the stabilization process, especially when there are signs of calcification plaques, found to be ineffective. The main goal of therapy is aimed at stopping the inflammatory process and the maximum preservation of tunica albuginea from defeat indurative process and the reduction of pain syndrome arising during erection. Conservative therapy of Peyronie's disease, currently, is shown in the acute stage, which lasts from 6 to 18 months.
