Using a Penis Pump to Correct Peyronie’s Disease Study

Traditionally, penis extenders are what we think of when we’re talking about correcting penis curvature (Peyronie’s Disease). Peyronie’s Disease is characterized by a plaque on the penis that causes bending.

One study showed how effective penis pumps can be in helping to alleviate this condition. Published in the British Journal of Urology International, a leading urology journal that provides the highest standard of research & clinical information for the urological community, this was a pretty interesting study. Check it out below!

Participants of the Using a Penis Pump to Correct Peyronie’s Disease Study

31 patients, all with Peyronie’s Disease, were selected for the study. They ranged in age from 24 to 71 years old, with a mean age of 51. All patients were considering undergoing surgery to correct their penis curve.

The Process of Using a Penis Pump  to Correct Peyronie’s Disease Study

The participants were asked to use a penis pump two times per day, for 10 minutes each session. After 12 weeks of penis pump usage, the following measurements were compared to study entry measurements. These included:

  • The International Index of Erectile Function questionnaire,
  • A perceived pain intensity score,
  • Stretched penile length measurement, and
  • The angle of penile deformity.

The Results of Using a Penis Pump to Correct Peyronie’s Disease Study

According to the research results, not only did participants see an increase in penis length (which we know penis pumps can do), but the angle of curvature was statistically significantly improved. Of the 31 patients, 21 of them had the angle of curvature reduced by 5 to 25 degrees!

Of the 31 participants, 16 (51%) were so happy with the outcome of the penis pump usage in just those 12 short weeks, they decided not to undergo surgery.
