Modern science, like ancient, can not always accurately determine the cause of certain diseases. Peyronie's disease – the remainder of his mystery. It shows visible curvature of the penis and its associated complications in men.
But what is the nature of the emerging foci of the connective tissue, until the installation failed. Expect high efficiency of treatment lack of knowledge about the causes of pathology is not necessary, but in most cases, treatment will give a satisfactory result.
Peyronie's disease – what is it?
The essence of the disease, which is named after the doctor who first gave a systematic description of the symptoms of Peyronie's disease, reduces the proliferation of connective tissue fibers within the tunica of the penis.
They are causing interference with the filling of blood swelled-up during erection in men, and give the penis an irregular shape. The fault is clearly visible only in the erect state.
Currently, the real causes of the disease are not found. Initially, the medicine is inclined to its hormonal nature, but sometimes the cause is an autoimmune reaction.
Among the main factors:
- microtrauma – may be rough sexual intercourse, excess friction due to lack of lubrication, use of unauthorized accessories friction;
- fracture penis – a rare phenomenon, which affects men who have sex intensively, or imperfect erection;
- autoimmune disease process attack on the protective organs of the protein in the tissue;
- angiopathy of various origins, including atherosclerosis and deep vein thrombosis;
- metabolic diseases – gout, diabetes;
- the lack of vitamins a and E, as responsible for the proper formation of connective tissue and superficial tissues;
- traumatic intervention of the organ in history – treatment injections, a surgical procedure, the introduction into the urethra foreign objects, such as a catheter;
- other congenital or acquired abnormalities of the connective tissue – scleroderma, myopathies, contracture (Dupuytren's disease). In the middle of such a cause of fibroid growth penis often be involved, the main process symptom.
In some cases, the recurrence of Peyronie's disease the correlation between the irregular the level of "wakefulness hormone" serotonin.
Phase of Peyronie's disease in men
Once born any of these reasons, the seals and bands under the skin are formed the next year or two. This is called acute stage of the process, there is a marked increase in his symptoms. Then the size, hardness and number of tumors stabiliziruemost and continue until the end of life of the patient. This stage is called chronic. A new injury in the acute period becomes the add symptoms.
Diagnosis: symptoms and signs
Subjective symptoms of Peyronie's include painless, movable seals under the intact skin. Erection becomes difficult, because of the pressure, tightening and pain in the places of their occurrence. Externally it looks like changing the shape of the penis in any direction, depending on the location of the fault.
Diagnosis men with the help of cavernosography, as well as the detection of pathological formations on the inside of the cavernous bodies, urology, hopes has not justified. Now the main method to detect plaques and evaluation to develop further tactics of treatment are:
The main symptom of urologists consider the state of the penis when excited. About how, in practice, it seems, Peyronie's disease, photos men below as an example shows that the curvature is noticeable up (in most cases). Also the body can be directed left, right and even down. Less likely is the abnormal shape shape shape, "hourglass", "bottlenecks", etc.
Fibrous growths under the skin can be distinguished from a cancer, because it happens a lot more often. Differential diagnosis be sent to doctor a picture is not enough – a mandatory personal appearance at the reception.
Individuals diagnosed with hereditary Peyronie's disease, treatment is often not needed. In their case, changes in the shape of a small, ambiguous sex feeling weak. The extension of a traumatic nature, instead of general progress.
The biggest difficulty in the treatment of this deviation is that the bad reasons for that. There are other difficulties in the form of the threat of a relapse or increase of symptoms after treatment.
This is possible with surgical removal of the tumors, local injection, which prevents collagen or sepsis remedies.
Drug treatment in men is used only in the acute stage. The reason is that he rarely gives significant results when the process has become chronic. Optimal in this are drugs that do not require the introduction of a prick (at least locally).
Treatment is carried out:
- the complex of vitamins a and E normalize the updates and growth of connective tissue throughout the body;
- amino benzoate of potassium and colchicine is to promote the destruction of "extra" tissue. First ordered to drink 12 g per day, possibly several techniques. The second applies only in conjunction with vitamin E, 2 mg per day;
- An antagonist of estrogens, commonly used to combat tumors, which is a hormonal defect (also men). To improve Peyronie's disease, it is prescribed 20 mg every 12 h, for 3 months.
Twice in 24 hours you can drink and amino acids with glucose metabolism stimulating effect. Suffer from auto-immune disease "version of the" men also prescribe corticosteroids, local injections of hydrocortisone or ointment with. With a weak immune system pathology may be caused by chronic sepsis. Seems more appropriate then a local injection of interferon antiviral protein.
Home can and should be done some to ease the patient's condition and improve blood circulation procedures:
- massage is not prohibited, if it is erotic and "going smoothly" healthy sex;
- applying ointments – in particular heparin. Heparin has a direct anticoagulant. If Peyronie's disease in men, it is recommended to include in the care, when squeezing the cords/plaques great trunks, filling the member of blood;
- steaming is also can get rid of the bugs, but improve blood circulation in the body and contributes to normal erections. Soar genitals prefer sitting in the bath. More than 20 minutes is usually not required.
Continuous inpatient procedures more often for the treatment of Peyronie's disease conducted extracorporeal shock wave therapy and electrophoresis. The standard scope UHT – crushing kidney stones. However, when it was accidentally marked its positive impact on the texture of the calcifications within the member men. Electrophoresis is usually carried out with lydasum, but use the other one to break down the connective tissue fibers of the enzyme, chymotrypsin.
The core consists of surgical removal of the foreign configurations with the subsequent establishment of the prosthesis in a remote part of the fragment the body's own tissues. The main advantage of operating one hundred percent guarantee to restore the shape of the body and erection. But the disadvantages are:
- a high probability of relapse, taking into account his injury;
- the common size reduction due to scarring.
On the other hand, some of the "minus" at the centimeter long body replacement implant.
Healers don't have money, can seriously affect the course or symptoms of the pathology and treatment of Peyronie's disease at home can just run it. If the early stages have a chance to do without surgery, a fascinating mask the symptoms of techniques to make surgery inevitable.
Traditionally, the only alternative way to deal with it is hirudotherapy – the use of leeches or ointment/cream in their grip. Their saliva contains hirudin to prevent blood clotting.
"Experts" also claim that Peyronie's disease men can help regular use of garlic in shock (more than 5 Zubkov per day) doses. But when the patient is cured of the tumor itself, it is not fixed, although the use of this spice will really help many urological and digestive disorders.
Pseudo-methods for the treatment of Peyronie's disease the threat of even more hope for the "resorption" of the subcutaneous fibrous nodules under the action of the herbs or massage. Similar to the "miraculous" effect of garlic, how it sounds-and the myth that the origins and promotion of the curvature greatly influences the consumption of alcohol, including low alcohol drinks and beer.
Alcoholism does not lead to massive disorders of the blood and the heart, liver, central nervous system, blood vessels. However, moderate alcohol drinking is associated with Peyronie's disease is only one part of the – increased risk of injury "drunken" sex. The rest of the ethanol up to help restore the fullness of the cavernous bodies and acts as a light pain relieve the unpleasant sensations.
Some patients believe also, that straighten will affect the curvature of the body, which assists extender – simple placebo device is sold in many versions on the Internet. It is equally traumatic and ineffective for any use, the aim of which is to increase the healthy penis or "straighten" affected by Peyronie's disease. In the first case, he can provoke tears forming organs tissues, in the latter the use of an extender specifically contraindicated.
Another myth subject can cure Peyronie's disease your own drugs series ASD (activator-stimulator Dorogova). Most of the "healers" suggests, ASD fraction 3. This veterinary preparation on the basis of bone ash. The use of ASD in people ending in erosions of the stomach and duodenum. On the skin it is the same local irritant action.
Peyronie's disease: complications, adverse effects
Further development of the structures and their dangerous tiles solidification and the secondary impotence due to complications. The most common of them:
- sustainable development of pain and the disappearance of desire is located;
- compression of the vessels that supply blood to the corpora cavernosa, and, therefore, decrease/loss of erection.
How the disease affects sex?
In the acute phase of Peyronie's disease changes in body shape can cause serious disturbances in sex. His chronic symptoms stabiliziruemost, but the intimate life of men is difficult or impossible if the tumor is overlapping part of the vessels supplying the cavernous body with blood.
Such as Peyronie's disease are girls and women?
Install the find a sexual partner a disease is an individual thing. But in General, women experience a deviation of the shape and size of the male penis is not as painful as its owners. In the presence of strong emotions they can't tolerate the inevitable consequences of the disease.
How to behave with his wife?
With the development of husband Peyronie's disease wives should refrain from tips and advice, may worsen the serious mental condition of the patient. Be sure to get him to abandon the idea of Peyronie's disease at home, people's means, to convince to address to the urologist. It should be remembered that the action is currently the only effective (but not without consequences) way to get rid of the "new" configurations.
