Clinical Study on Hanging?


Clinical Study on Hanging?

Does anyone know whether a clinical study has ever been attempted with hanging?

I know some basic studies have been doing with both extenders & manual routines. But I have never heard of one that used hanging.

I’m sure there isn’t any.

Starting stats: 6.4" / 5.6" Current Stats: 7.4" / 5.8" Short term goal: 7" / 6" Long term goal: 8" / 6.5"

It would probably be difficult & expensive to coordinate a hanging clinical trial (much like the extender studies may have been). I guess hanging is more difficult & dangerous too; I guess none of those factors are conducive to a study.

I also agree. Hanging is seen a little ” barbaric ” and primitive by many people. It wouldn’t sell so much as an extender or a pump which are more appealing to men interested in this kind of devices.

If there was a commercial hanger maker I think they would do one.. But other than the Bib hanger I don’t think there’s any commercial hanger producers out there so no need to do a clinical study because the extenders do it in order to garner those positive results to bolster the product they’re marketing.

I’m not aware of any.

The funny thing is that they claim cutting the ligament with surgery results in length gains. But the surgeons claim you must hang for months after as part of the treatment. I bet if they studied surgery plus hanging vs just hanging, the just hanging group would do better.

Among those kinds of surgeons it’s common knowledge that hanging works, there’s just no formal published study on the subject (with a real clinical trial).

I believe hanging gives much better length gains than most other forms of PE (including extenders). It would be interesting to test that with a study…

Urologic and Plastic surgeons who do penis enhancement surgery with lysis of the suspensory and fundiform ligaments all utilize some method of maintaining the penis in prolonged extension postop in order to prevent the ligaments from healing with contraction. I believe most utilize an extender for this purpose, but I have seen one or two who utilized stainless steel weights attached to a Latex rubber sleeve or other “hanger” device.

I can’t provide the quotation, but I did see an abstract from an article published in a urologic journal in which ligamentolysis with use of a postop extender was compared to use of the extender alone, without surgery. Gains in erect and flaccid length were demonstrated with use of the extender alone. A reference to that article might possibly exist on the Andropenis site, I can’t remember for sure.

Ah thats great redbear. I wonder if you or someone else can find that; I think it would be very interesting to read a doctor’s perspective on hanging.

There are some doctors here.

“Another technique involves release of the suspensory ligament, a very controversial procedure in which the suspensory ligament of the penis is detached from the symphisis pubis and both corpora are advanced by traction of the penis using various methodologies, such as vacuum devices, weights, or specialized traction devices. It is important to emphasize that the release of the suspensory ligament does not itself cause length gain.”…ncpuro0120.html

I am not finding the particular abstract I was thinking of on the Andropenis site. You might look at this for the synopsis of some small studies that have been done regarding traction devices (extenders):…on-research.htm

Its too bad that the abstracts on the surgery never seem to give any detail on the hanging routine; the amount of weight used or the technique used to attach the weights doesn’t get much attention.

Perhaps only a urologist would know these details, but I’m sure any doctor could figure it out. Doctors probably have access to resources which the average person cannot use.

“Ligament release alone may occasionally increase flaccid (soft) length a half an inch, but often no gain is achieved.

Weights are suspended from the penis several times daily for a period of months. Flaccid (soft) length is often increased, and erect length gain is also possible.
a one-inch gain is considered a success even with the use of weights. …..
Weights can stretch the penis without surgery, but a greater incremental gain will result if the suspensory ligament is released. Data concerning the average gain possible have not been accurately documented or verified in peer review journals.”…lengthening.htm

“The mainstay of penile lengthening procedures are a combination of release of the suspensory ligament of the penis with an inverted V-Y penopubic skin advancement (Figure 2).[34] Most surgeons recommend cutting the suspensory and fundiform ligament in combination with the use of postoperative penile weights. There is minimal evidence-based data in the literature documenting pre- and postoperative lengths.

It is often standard protocol that after transection of the fundiform and suspensory ligaments, penile weights (at least 10 pounds) are used. Penile weights are hung from the corporal ridge, once the patient has recovered from the initial procedure.”
