Peyronie's disease is a disorder caused by fibrosis of the tunica albuginea, which results in penile deformity, pain, and can be associated with erectile dysfunction. Treatment options include a variety of medical and surgical approaches, with no clear consensus as to the best treatment option. Many medical therapies have been investigated, including oral, topical, injectable, and external-energy agents. Surgical management can involve plication with or without plaque resection, grafting procedures, or, in extreme cases, penile prosthesis implantation. Two of these treatment techniques are presented in a detailed technical review: the 16-dot plication and tunica-sparing plaque excision.
