Benefit of VED for treatment of Peyronie’s disease?

Dr. Herazy,

Do you recommend or see any benefits for using a Vacuum Erection Device (VED) for the treatment of early stage Peyronie's Disease when the patient has no difficulty achieving a normal erection by sexual stimulation?


Generally, like with most things related to Peyronies, I find men saying different things about the VED; some say it helps and some say it does not and others say it caused their PD.  The greatest limitation I find is that whatever stretching of the penile tissue occurs using the VED is too general.  To do any good in Peyronie's disease treatment the stretching must occur only and specifically at the site of the scar, not the entire organ.  To do this I developed the Peyronie's Disease Institute Manual Penis Stretching Method described in this video.    

Another way to look at the subject  of the VED is in regard to the current level of injury and vulnerability of your penile tissue at this time.  You already have a problem, and the problem often starts from a very small injury – sometimes so small that it goes unnoticed.  The VED will apply perhaps up to 100 PSI to your tissue; enough to often break blood vessels and tear tissue.  This amount of force applied to the penis that already has shown a tendency to over-respond to injury by creating excess scar tissue does not sound like a good idea to me.  TRH
