Peyronie’s disease, which occurs with the formation of a fibrous plaque in the tunica albuginea; is a disease that causes some physical problems such as bending and shortening of the penis. There are surgical treatment methods of this disease as well as non-surgical treatment methods. Non-surgical treatment methods, which are grouped under six headings: oral treatments, topical treatments, traction and vacuum treatments, shock wave therapy, intraplate injection treatments, and experimental treatments, can be preferred in cases where the symptoms are not very advanced because they provide advantages in terms of ease of application, accessibility, and cost. Although the only non-surgical treatment method approved by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) yet is clostridium collagenase histolikum, which is used in intraplaque injection, studies have shown that other methods also reduce curvature, pain, and plaque volume.
