Treatment for Painful Curved Penis Shows Promise

th, or you can use a penile prosthesis."

Lipshultz said he's had some luck with about half of his patients when he gives them a drug called verapamil, a calcium channel blocker, which is injected into the shaft of the penis. The use of the drug is based on its ability to degrade collagen, slowing, preventing or even reversing plaque formation and the progression of Peyronie's disease, according to a 2002 study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research. A verapamil gel that is applied to the skin is also sometimes used, according to Kavaler.

Lee, who has been dealing with Peyronie's for about two years, has used a "straightening machine" that stretches the penis, and he participated in one of two clinical trials for a new drug that is up for review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration: Xiaflex, produced by Auxilium Pharmaceuticals Inc. He said his penis is now 70 percent of its pre-disease length as a result of the interventions.

Xiaflex, which breaks down the scar tissue that is a component of penile plaque, was approved by the FDA in 2010 to treat Dupuytren's contracture, an inherited connective tissue disorder that causes the fingers to bend toward the palm. The concept of using Xiaflex with Peyronie's is based on some common features of both diseases. The hand condition is caused by an abnormal buildup of a substance called collagen. Fingers begin to bend toward the palm and the patient cannot straighten them.

The two clinical trials designed to test how Xiaflex worked in people with Peyronie's disease -- done in 2011 and 2012 -- together involved a total of 551 patients who received Xiaflex and 281 who were given a placebo. Each participant received four to six injections with a small needle into the penis every 25 to 72 hours over a period of several weeks. "The results showed people got a 30 percent improvement in curvature, which is clinically significant in terms of function," Lipshultz said
