The pain, problems with erection, sexual deformitymember - all Peyronie's disease, the symptoms of which are deprived of normal male sexual function, deliver a lot of physical and psychological suffering, radically changed his life and deprived of family happiness.
Peyronie's disease was named in honor of hisdiscoverer Francois Peyronie, who described the symptoms of the disease in 1743. Since then undertaken many attempts to treat plastic induration penis conservative methods, but rather firmly entrenched the status of an incurable disease. And although the 70-ies of the last century, the solution was found to the problem - surgical treatment, many still consider the fight against the disease useless, hopeless occupation.
Peyronie's disease - a disease of the penis,accompanied by the formation in the tunica albuginea of the corpora cavernosa, dense fibrous plaques that lead to curvature of the penis, the appearance of pain and erectile dysfunction. According to statistics, 8.9% of men have symptoms of the disease, but as a result of research conducted by American scientists, found that one in four of the stronger sex initial manifestations of fibrous induration of the penis can be detected. Men either do not pay attention to the first symptoms of the disease, or are embarrassed to see a doctor.
In the era of Peyronie Fibroplastic indurationthe penis was considered God's punishment for the sins of the flesh, incest, homosexuality. Today, there is a view that the Peyronie's disease begins with the appearance of foci of inflammation around the blood vessels of the penis in response to the body microtrauma during intercourse or diagnostic manipulations. The dense fibrous tissue forms in response to inflammation, a scar, but if it resolves normally, then in the presence of a genetic predisposition, lack of blood supply to the penis, frequent repeated trauma, the plaque is "forever."
Peyronie's disease develops slowly, its first"Bell" becomes an easy bending of the penis during erection, accompanied by a slight pain during intercourse. With the passage of time in the thickness of the penis begins to be palpable fibrous plaque, deformity and the pain intensified, affecting erectile function. Changing the shape of the penis partner brings anxiety, and these symptoms often makes men refuse sex. According to statistics, the majority of patients come to the doctor in 6-12 months from the onset of the disease, having already, in addition to signs of Peyronie's disease serious psychological problems.
In its development, Peyronie's disease is held as stages:
- subclinical stage, hidden flows;
- inflammatory phase, which is manifested by pain, and then the deformation of the penis;
- stabilizing step in the process which forms fibrous plaque, deforming the penis and increases erectile dysfunction;
- recourse stage, characterized by the cessation of the growth of the strain and the reduction of pain.
In the early stages of Peyronie's disease is successfully used complex conservative treatment based on recent advances in molecular biology.
- anti-inflammatory drugs are anti-sclerotic effect, the appointment of vitamins E and A, verapamil, interferon, tamoxifen, zidena;
- for topical administration, for example, glucocorticoids, lidasa introduced into the penis via electrophoresis, phonophoresis.
- Remote shock-wave therapy.
Conservative measures are in 35-40% of cases allow to achieve pain relief and prevention of progressive deformation of the penis.
Significant curvature of the penis, the presence oferectile dysfunction that prevents sexual intercourse, is an indication for surgery for Peyronie's disease. Treatment is primarily intended not to establish the ideal shape of the penis, and to restore its function. To correct existing violations most commonly used method of Nesbitt-Shepeleva, the negative side is that the subsequent shortening of the penis. Eliminate bending body lossless help plastic surgery with the use of grafts outs tunica testicles, fascial and skin grafts and synthetic materials. In the absence of recourse to results faloprotezirovaniyu.
Peyronie's disease - a serious disease, and the first symptoms of the disease should be a cause for treatment to the doctor. Only in this case, there is hope for a full recovery of sexual function.
