Summary of "How Atypical Penile Curvature Influence Clinical Outcomes in Patients with Peyronie’s Disease Receiving Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum Therapy?"

—Dr. Trost Commentary and Key Take-home Points—  The current manuscript evaluates the efficacy of Xiaflex in improving curvature in men with less common deformities, including those with downward curvatures, hourglass deformity, or decreased penile length.  Not surprisingly, results showed that the therapy is indeed able to improve curvature in these conditions as well.  In our own experience, we …
