This comment (Words of Wisdom) refers to a previously published meta-analysis on ESWT in patients with Peyronies disease (PD). The shortcomings and lack of standardization are emphasised. The authors conclude that whereas most studies have showed effect on pain and plaque size, improved erectile dysfunction and curvature were not seen. In the bottom line of this comment the authors quote AUA guidelines stating that “the overall utility of ESWT in the management of PD is low”.
