PeyronieÂ’s disease is a benign condition. It is characterized by the formation of fibrous plaques. It happens due to the inflammatory response of the tunica albuginea of the penile corpora cavernosa. PeyronieÂ’s disease may be caused by several factors like cytokines, fibroblasts, and macrophages. Numerous studies have shown a progressive increase in prevalence of the disease with age. Several approaches have been defined for the surgical correction of PD including plication techniques, plaque incision with grafting and penile prosthesis implantation.
Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature.
Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method.
Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
