A unique medical study commissioned by Andromedical (andromedical.com) shows Acute Phase Peyronie’s Disease can be successfully managed with a Traction Device in a Non-randomized Prospective Controlled Trial, with Ultrasound Correlation.
Andromedical’s study saw 55 patients undergo PTT for six months – between January 2009 and October 2011 – compared with 41 patients with AP of PD who did not receive active treatment, over the same period.More than eight doctors from the Urology and Radiology departments of three leading Spanish hospitals took part in the trial, which saw penile traction therapy (PTT) applied via a penile extender device (PED), called Andropeyronie, for the treatment of patients in the acute phase (AP) of Peyronie’s disease (PD).
The study – whose objective was to determine the effectiveness and safety of the use of a PED – was able to conclude that “PTT seems an effective treatment for the AP of PD in terms of pain reduction, penile curvature decrease, and improvement in sexual function.”
Peyronie’s disease (PD) is a chronic wound healing disorder characterised by formation of fibrous inelastic scar of the tunica albuginea following trauma of the penis and causing a variety of deformities including curvature, shortening, narrowing, and hinge defect.
It is associated with a variable degree of erectile dysfunction (ED), which significantly affects the quality of life of the patient and is a condition that represents a challenge to manage.
