Quote from: cdub on April 10, 2022, 01:45:53 PMI saw Dr. Levine a little over a week ago and I asked about ETG as I have a large indentation on the right side of my penis about 1/2 way up the shaft. He specifically said without hesitation and repeated it to me that ETG will not provide added structural support to the penis. Kind of took the wind out of my sails honestly. Not sure if other Doctors/Surgeons share this belief as well? Dr. Lue, Dr. Christine, Dr. Trost? I'm still looking at getting second opinions from some of those mentioned.
Quote from: cdub on April 15, 2022, 05:39:15 PMI'm really not sure what I will do right now. My condition is stable right now. Penis is straight, erections are great, sex is good although I do have some pain afterwards sometimes if I'm not careful. I'm taking a break until May to decide what I want to do for sure. I will reach out to some of the other Drs in this field doing the ETG work to see their thoughts on whether ETG provides any support. I'm thinking I will probably continue with traction by hand for a while and see if this helps anything and if not I will go the route of ETG for me.
Quote from: jj21 on April 18, 2022, 04:33:36 AMSonic - appreciate your post and advice but just like to add that for some people VED and restoreX has helped with indentations. Please don't think I am being rude. I also have serious indentations and would love to know more about ETGJJ
Quote from: Bud luck on April 18, 2022, 10:36:24 AMI tried traction to correct my dent and narrowing and I made it worse, now my penis also slightly rotates. The most depressing is the fact that no one in the world knows what to do to correct the problem.
Quote from: jj21 on April 18, 2022, 07:33:02 PMSorry you guys are going through this man... VED was helping with my indentations but I've had to take a break for a while.You're right thoufh - what works for one of us may not work for the other.
Quote from: Sonic on April 17, 2022, 07:45:28 PMIt seems like indentations are generally very hard to treat and do not respond well to standard treatments like traction, ved etc. You say your penis is still completely straight when erect, this is a plus, you also say you have proper erections. How about instability? Is your penis more wobbly when you are fully erect or is it the same as before you got peyronies?If you have straight erections, no instability when erect then I would very strongly recommend against even thinking about excision and grafting. This is a complicated procedure reserved for people with very high degrees of curvature and you also risk Erectile Dysfunction this should not even be considered based on how you have described your penis.Only logical surgical treatment for you is honestly ETG. Also on a final note, be careful with the traction by hand as traction is pretty much a complete waste of time when it comes to large indentations anyway, unless your lucky. Do it if you wish and carry on doing what works for you but just remember you are risking making the condition worse.

One of the things Dr. Trost brings up in the video I linked to earlier in this thread is that they still don't know whether or not the graft gets reabsorbed by the body or if it helps act as a scaffold for the body to fill in with the body's own tissue over time? If the latter is the case, then my assumption is that the graft would provide structural support.
Quote from: nemo on September 04, 2021, 06:27:28 AMHave just learned and read about Extra Tunical Grafting, to basically patch-over indentations and/or hinging effect. Supposedly much less risk of Erectile Dysfunction or other problems as tunica is not actually cut-into or modified. I'm thinking that if my current indentation becomes worse (I'm still in the acute stage), if surgery becomes necessary, ETG might be a better alternative than penile implant, as I still get good erections. To date, I don't have any curvature, just a circumferential indentation that covers about half of my right corpora from the dorsal up the side. It clearly tracks a grain of rice lesion I can feel when flaccid. Has anyone here actually had the surgery? And who are the leading surgeons doing this procedure? I know Tom Lue wrote a paper on the procedure - is he considered the best at it? Thanks,nemo
Quote from: Benjamin62 on September 19, 2023, 04:18:38 PMYes I had in done at the same time as my Plication with Dr Brian Christine in Alabama. He learned it from Dr Lue. I flew down from Boston for the surgery Feb 2020. Most surgeons haven't done it or claim it doesn't work. It does. If I had the same condition id do it in a heartbeat. Don't listen to naysayers. Talk to the Christine directly
