In 2002, the result of one of those studies was presented in the 22nd European Congress of Andrology. The study tested the efficiency of mechanical penile stretching when it comes to reducing deformity during erection. It involved 10 patients who were suffering from Peyronie’s disease. For six months, the patients’ penis was measured and penile stretching was applied at home before and after their daily activities.
