Peyronie’s Disease: RestoreX Traction Device Investigated With Injection Therapy

May 28, 2019

Peyronie’s Disease: RestoreX Traction Device Investigated With Injection TherapyMen with Peyronie’s disease may benefit from combining injection therapy with a particular traction therapy, experts report.

Peyronie’s disease involves the formation of plaques on the penis, just below the skin’s surface. These hardened areas make the penis less flexible, and erections take on a distinct curve.

The condition is often treated surgically, but men do have some non-surgical options. Some have medication injected directly into the plaques; a common one is called collagenase Clostridium histolyticum (CCH). Others use a traction device designed to straighten the curve and improve penile length. And some have a combination of both therapies.

Several traction devices have been developed for Peyronie’s disease treatment. But studies on their effectiveness have had mixed results, and men must use the devices for at least three to five hours a day.

Scientists created the RestoreX device with improvements in mind. It uses greater traction force, and men can use it for a shorter time period each day (generally 30 to 90 minutes).
