Conditions: Peyronies Disease

Peyronie’s Disease and Erectile Dysfunction

Last month, the International Journal of Impotence Research published a study that examined whether the degree of curvature and the direction of the curve had any role in vasculogenic ED in men with PD. Good blood flow to the penis is essential for a firm erection.

Researchers from the United States and Turkey evaluated 220 patients with a mean age of 55. All of the men had Peyronie’s disease.

After receiving an injection to induce an erection, each man underwent penile duplex Doppler ultrasonography (PDDU), a test that assesses blood flow. PDDU may also be used to assess other aspects of PD, such as the size and depth of plaques and the development of calcification.
