What is the Peyronie’s disease?
It is a scarring disorder characterized by the formation of a plaque (scar) at the level of one of the envelopes of the penis (tunica albuginea – white coat) . This scar can cause a curvature of the erect penis and even erectile dysfunction. To imagine what this means: think that you have a scar on the back of your hand. Because the scar tissue is hard and resists movement, the scar on the hand makes it difficult to bend or stretch it.
The same thing happens for Peyronie’s disease, the scar at the level of the tunica albuginea -white coat, causes the extension of the penis to be limited, creating a curvature.
Different types of penile fibrosis create different types of problems:
- If fibrosis affects the corpora cavernosa of the penis, it will cause a condition called erectile dysfunction because it will prevent the penis from extending or otherwise erecting.
- On the other hand, if fibrosis strikes, the tunica albuginea, therefore one of the envelopes of the corpora cavernosa, will cause a curvature of the penis.
- However, if this fibrosis affects the urethra, it will cause a condition called urethral stricture.
It must be remembered that there is always an involvement of the cavernous tissues so patients, suffering from this disease, can also have a certain degree of erectile dysfunction.
Characteristics of Peyronie’s disease
Peyronie’s disease is characterized by two things. One is the curvature of the penis: the shape of the penis will be curved. The extent of the curvature will ensure that there is a medical or surgical indication. The other, may or may not exist and refers to a certain degree of erectile dysfunction, i.e. the penis will struggle to have a solid and turgid erection, like the one you had before the condition arose.

The European guidelines in terms of Treatments
The Scientific Committee’s Panel no longer agrees with the use of old medicines like Vitamin E, Potaba, Tamoxifen, intravenous injections of Tamoxifen, and calcium inhibitors. After evaluating the scientific evidence, it was understood that these drugs have no effect on Peyronie’s disease. What do they suggest today instead? Definitely the use of type 5 phosphodiesterases: Viagra, Cialis, Tadalafil, shock wave therapy and penile traction devices.
For all the above mentioned treatments, there is enough scientific evidence to prove their efficacy in Peyronie’s disease.
The Benefits of Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave therapy has been recognized as an excellent method for treating Peyronie’s disease . There are several medical studies that certify it, it also has no side effects on the patient’s body.
The sessions are quite short, lasting from 12 to 20 minutes. The treatment path is determined individually, by Dr Castiglioni, according to the complexity of the course of the disease ( average of 5 to 10 sessions).
- Other benefits of treating urological diseases with the ESWT method include the absence of surgery, drug therapy or the need for anesthesia, and these is what patients fear most. The shockwave therapy procedure is absolutely painless and the results are felt, usually, from the very first session.
There are a number of contraindications for treatment with shockwave therapy in urology. Such as: oncology, acute inflammatory processes, infectious diseases of the pelvic organs, blood clotting disorders or the formation of thickening inside the blood vessels (thrombosis). Also, people who wear a pacemaker shouldn’t use this procedure. Therefore, before starting this medical procedure, one should definitely consult a urologist or andrologist, pass the necessary prescribed tests and undergo an ultrasound exam.. It is not worth neglecting the examination, since only after the examination and accurate diagnosis can treatment with the ESWT method begin. The final decision on the adequacy of shockwave therapy is made by the doctor.
The shockwave therapy procedure does not require special preparation and involves applying a special gel to the area of the skin that needs treatment. The GEL helps make it easier for high-amplitude infrasound waves to reach the affected area .Additionally, the probe, which is applied directly to the patient’s body, generates acoustic waves that have a therapeutic effect. This is a non-invasive method of treatment, the value of which lies in the fact that it is painless and safe; as nothing is injected into the patient subcutaneously or into the urethra. More information on ESWT can be obtained directly from Doctor Castiglione at his specialized centers. Information can be obtained by phone, directly with Dr. Castiglione or on his website. The urologist determines the area that requires the use of an ESWT device, selects the necessary mode of action of the waves on the affected area.
How does it work?
Following the spread of the ultrasound wave, calibrated at a certain frequency and directed into the focus of inflammation, blood circulation improves, blood flow to the organs increases, pain and inflammation and oedema decrease, metabolism improves, the cell regeneration and renewal process is activated, facilitating the treatment of urological diseases.
The protocol of Dr Castiglione
It is a multiple approach of three main components:
- Reduction of fibrosis through the activation of nitric oxide. A neurotransmitter that causes vasodilation, and other important functions.
- Making the fibrotic plaque softer through the use of shockwaves. The Shockwaves in Dr Castiglioni’s protocol are used for the specific purpose of making the plaque softer The Shockwaves manage to break up scar tissue, making it softer. It returns the plaque to a more ductile and malleable inflammatory state than the one that creates the penis curvature. Shockwaves also have a very important effect, the revascularization which leads to a better erection..
- Remodeling of the scar with the penile pump. The aim is to allow the plaque to relax completely.
All treatments used are approved by European guidelines!
