Prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) is suggested in some studies to cause fibrosis in the penis in up to 15% of the men who use it:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9442421

My question is what is the mechanism for that fibrosis? Is fibrosis a complication of any kind of penile injection, and if yes would the complication with PGE1 be avoided by the suppository form of PGE1? (I do realize the suppository form is less effective.)
