Treat Peyronie’s Disease With Platelet-Rich Plasma

I’m talking about Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Peyronie’s disease. Peyronie’s disease is a common condition involving a curvature of the penis. In fact, it affects up to 20% of men over the age of 40. It’s fairly rare under the age of 40, but it has been observed in men as young as in their 30’s. Physicians are still not entirely sure what causes Peyronie’s disease. It is possible that an injury earlier in life could lead to a little buildup of scar tissue, but it can also occur spontaneously. The gradual buildup of scar tissue is called a plaque, and this can be uncomfortably painful, leading to a quite marked curvature in the penis, which makes erections and intercourse quite difficult, uncomfortable, or even impossible in some cases. Now, clearly these symptoms can have an impact not just on your sexual performance, but also on your confidence and self-esteem.

What happens in Peyronie’s disease is the thickened area of scar tissue also called a fibrotic plaque builds up in one of the chambers along the shaft of the penis. This chamber becomes contracted and short, which is what leads to the curvature. When the penis becomes erect, this curvature is more pronounced and can be quite painful.

As you may know, PRP uses natural growth factors from your own blood concentrated in a centrifuge, and then inserted in the penis to encourage the growth of healthy new cells. In this way, the fibrotic scar tissue can be softened and broken down, reducing the curvature quite noticeably, helping to alleviate pain and enhance sexual performance.
