Abstract

The purpose of this article is to review the contemporary literature on nonsurgical therapies for Peyronie's disease (PD); focus on randomized, placebo-controlled trials; and review the latest guidelines for the management of PD from the International Consultation on Sexual Medicine. A combination of oral agents or intralesional injection with traction therapy may provide a synergy between the chemical effects of the drugs and the mechanical effects of traction. Until a reliable treatment emerges, some of the nonsurgical treatments discussed can be used to stabilize the scarring process and may result in some reduction of deformity with improved sexual function.
