Abstract

The investigation of medical options for the treatment of Peyronie's disease is lacking controlled clinical trials with uniform standardized assessments and objective measures of deformity, including curvature and circumference. A key to defining the beneficial effects of various medical therapies lies in standardizing the evaluation of the Peyronie's patient across various studies so that the proposed benefits can be confirmed and applied to all populations. Furthermore, basic science research into the pathophysiology of this disorder is likely to yield new insights into potential treatment options and direct future therapies.
