Having CCH Injections for Peyronie’s Disease? Don’t Give Up!

Having CCH Injections for Peyronie’s Disease? Don’t Give Up!CCH injections can be an effective way to treat Peyronie’s disease, but men might not see significant results right away.

What should they do?

Stay patient and continue the full treatment program, scientists say.

Peyronie’s disease is a chronic, often painful condition that causes plaques (areas of hardened scar tissue) to form on the penis, just below the skin’s surface. The plaques make the penis less flexible, and the result is a noticeable curve that can make intercourse difficult.

Treatment for Peyronie’s disease may include medications, injections, traction therapy, and surgery. Some men decide to have injections of collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH).  Currently, Xiaflex® is the only CCH treatment  approved in the United States.

CCH therapy takes time. Typically, injections are done in a series.  A man might have two injections a few days apart, then wait six weeks for the next two-injection series. Experts recommend four series overall.
