Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Our intention, illustrated in this work, is to found a Data Base, on the basis of a multicentric inter-university prospective study, which will supply material and a substratum substantial enough to underpin future national studies in Induratio Penis Plastica (etiopathologenesis, risk factors, prophylaxis, treatment, etc), founded on a solid scientific platform, at present not available. The data collection regarding each patient was entrusted to a relational Data Base originated and carried out by the authors. In this work we report, as an example, on a part of the data obtained from the study analysis. The data collected by the IPPOS project consitute a wide case series which, while not representative at the epidemiological level, allow a comparison with the data available in the literature, and offer an overview of the disease as it is seen in the participating Urological Centres from all over Italy.
