PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To explore the potential hurdles surgeons may encounter when preforming surgical correction of penile curvature in patients with Peyronie's Disease following intralesional collagenase clostridium histolyticum injections.
RECENT FINDINGS: Although limited data exists, retrospective analysis of surgeon experiences in surgical treatment of refractory penile curvature in patients with Peyronie's disease appears to not result in more post-operative complications and may only slightly increase intra-operative difficulty. As the use of intralesional collagenase clostridium histolyticum continues to increase and patients who demonstrate persistent curvature despite treatment seek further management, the role of investigating the feasibility of surgery demonstrates significant importance. Although limited data exists, it appears that surgery following intralesional collagenase clostridium histolyticum is safe without added post-operative complications. At the present time, however, further data on intra-operative findings and post-operative outcomes remain necessary, and as the use of this intralesional therapy continues to rise, further information should become readily available.
