Aim The primary aim is to examine whether LI-ESWT and vacuum erectile device (VED) followed by manipulation exercises has beneficial effect on PD patients compared to a placebo group.

Primary Outcome

  • Peyronie's Disease Questionnaire (PDQ)
  • Visual Analogue Scale score (VAS)
  • International Index of Erectile Function 5 (IEFF-5)
  • Penile curve measurements (gold standard) on pictures before and after treatment
  • Plaque size

Method This study is designed as a prospective, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled with follow-up after 1, 3 and 6 months.

A total of 50 participants who meets the inclusion criteria's will randomly be assigned to I(intervention) or C(control) group based on a randomization list which is retained in a sealed envelope. The content of the envelope is only familiar to the Head of the Department of Urology to ensure valid randomization.

All treatment sessions are executed at the outpatient clinic of the department of urology department L at Odense University Hospital(OUH). All patients receive treatment with the same device a Duolith SD1 T-Top from Storz Medical. However, when treating patients in the control group the handpiece will be covered by a shockwave absorbent material. Settings and setup are identical in both groups to make sure that patients are unable to acknowledge which treatment is being performed.
