When scar tissue forms in the penis, specifically around the tunica albuginea or the tissue responsible for maintaining an erection, Peyronie’s Disease may be the culprit. Peyronie’s Disease, also called Induratio Penis Plastica (IPP) or Chronic Inflammation of the Tunica Albuginea (CITA) is a painful disorder that affects an estimated 5 percent of men.
Peyronie’s Disease can cause a host of symptoms including: pain during sexual intercourse, abnormal curvature, loss of girth, indentation, erectile dysfunction, and shortening. While this disease usually causes curvature of the penis, that’s not always the case. Sometimes, the affected penis will maintain regular curvature but the scar tissue will cause indentations or divots.
Although the root cause of Peyronie’s Disease remains unknown, some studies have found that genetics may play a role. Other causes include injuries from sports or sex.
Since Peyronie’s Disease can involve symptoms from erectile dysfunction to depression, there are a variety of treatment options for the condition. Results from these remedies have been mixed and there is still no absolute cure for the condition.
This medication is used to treat certain conditions (Dupuytren’s contracture, Peyronie’s disease) that are caused by a certain protein (collagen) in your body. Collagen is a tough and strong substance and is found in the knots/cords of the hand in Dupuytren’s contracture or plaques in the penis in Peyronie’s disease. Collagenase is a substance (enzyme) that breaks down the collagen in these knots/cords/plaques.

tells you it is okay to do so. Tell your doctor right away if you start to feel numbness, tingling, or a feeling of “pins and needles” in your hand during the procedure.
You must return to your doctor’s office within 1 to 3 days after the procedure. Your doctor will check your hand, try to straighten the finger if needed, and apply a splint. Wear the splint every night at bedtime as long as directed by your doctor (for up to 4 months). Do finger exercises several times a day exactly as directed. Do not do any strenuous activity with the treated hand until your doctor tells you it is okay to do so. Tell your doctor if you have trouble bending the finger after the swelling goes down or problems using your hand.
If you are still unable to straighten your finger after 4 weeks, your doctor may give a repeat injection into the same area of the hand. No more than 3 injections, each 4 weeks apart, should be given in the same area.
If you are using this medication to treat Peyronie’s disease, the medication is injected into the plaque in the penis by your healthcare provider. Each treatment cycle consists of two injections 1 to 3 days apart and a modeling (straightening) procedure 1 to 3 days after the second injection. Do not have sex between the first and second injections of a treatment cycle. Also, do not have any sexual activity for at least 2 weeks after the second injection of a treatment cycle and only after your doctor says that it is safe to do so (usually after all the pain/swelling has gone away). You might have as many as 4 treatment cycles. Each treatment cycle is about 6 weeks apart. In between cycles, follow your doctor’s instructions on straightening and stretching the penis. Tell your doctor if you have trouble stretching or straightening your penis or if new pain occurs.
