Abstract

Although a greater percent of patients treated with verapamil in our electromotive drug administration protocol had a measured decrease in curvature, the results were not statistically significant. Further research is necessary to determine whether electric current may have a role in the treatment of Peyronie's disease as well as if verapamil delivered via electromotive drug administration may have a role as effective treatment. Electromotive drug administration is a treatment option in the patient whose major complaint is pain or in the patient with mild curvature who does not wish to undergo intralesional therapy or surgical correction.
