Coincidence of induratio penis plastica and erectile dysfunction

Urol Int. 1998;60(2):97-100. doi: 10.1159/000030219.

Abstract

There are still diverse management options in Peyronie's disease and diverse opinions about the coincidence of Peyronie's disease and erectile dysfunction (ED) as well. The connection between Peyronie's disease and ED has been proved by some articles, but on the other hand authors have refused this fact. We found ED in about 30% of our patients suffering from Peyronie's disease. We have investigated 61 patients with Peyronie's disease. A diagnostic pattern for evaluation of angulation and ED are proposed. The tunica albuginea plication technique was used in 35 patients with good results. In our investigation we cannot find any coincidence of Peyronie's disease with ED.
