Plaque excision with the Shah Penile Implant™ and tunica vaginalis graft in Peyronie's disease with erectile dysfunction: A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2022 May 5;94:106976. Epub 2022 Apr 5.

Andrologia Internazionale Rome, Italy.

Peyronie's disease (PD) is a condition characterized by the deposition of scar tissue in the tunica albuginea of the penis. Peyronie's disease often causes pain, worsens the quality of erections, a variable degree of penile deformation and shortening, which can cause severe distress for the patient and the partner and impact negatively on self-esteem and quality of life in general. Surgery still represents the gold standard treatment for PD in the chronic phase, and it aims to guarantee a penis straight and rigid enough to allow the patient to resume penetrative sex with confidence.

Grafting Area Reduction in Peyronie's Disease Surgery: Comparative Assessment Between Double Y Vs iGrafter APP Using 3D-Printed Penile Models.

J Sex Med 2022 04 23;19(4):669-675. Epub 2022 Feb 23.

Department of Urology, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, AR, USA. Electronic address:

Background: The use of plaque incision and graft techniques (PIG) for the treatment of severe Peyronie's disease (PD), may lead to erectile dysfunction (ED); graft size is 1 of the contributing factors for post-PIG ED. Recently the iGrafter software APP was introduced using a mathematical algorithm to distribute the incisions along the penile length resulting in a smaller grafting area.

Aim: Compare 2 PIG techniques, the Double-Y(DY) and iGrafter, in 3 main aspects: (i) Total grafting area; (ii) The variation in calculating the grafting to be used; (iii) time to perform the PIG. Read More

Erosion of urethra by malleable penile prosthesis in a spinal cord injury patient with diabetes mellitus and repeated misplacement of Foley balloon in the urethra: lessons we learn: a case report.

Spinal Cord Ser Cases 2022 01 21;8(1):12. Epub 2022 Jan 21.

Department of Radiology, District General Hospital, Southport, PR8 6PN, United Kingdom.

Introduction: Spinal cord injury patients with indwelling urethral catheters are at high risk for erosion of urethra by penile prosthesis. Repeated misplacement of a Foley catheter with the balloon inflated in the urethra produces additional compression, thus predisposing to erosion of urethra by the prosthesis.

Penile Prosthesis Implantation in Refractory Ischaemic Priapism: Patient Selection and Special Considerations.

Res Rep Urol 2022 14;14:1-6. Epub 2022 Jan 14.

Department of Urology, AOU Federico II, University Hospital, Naples, Italy.

Ischemic priapism accounts for more than 95% of all priapic episodes. It has to be considered a urological emergency because its time extension may lead to necrosis of smooth muscle cells of the corpora cavernosa, resulting in a complete erectile dysfunction, penile shortening and loss of girth. In the present systematic review, we perform an up-to-date literature search for patients suffering from refractory ischemic priapism who undergo penile prosthesis implantation with particular interests to the patients characteristics.

Direct Vision, Transfascial (DVT) Approach to Submuscular Reservoir Placement in Patients Undergoing Multicomponent Penile Implant Surgery Following Prior Pelvic Surgery or Radiation Therapy.

J Sex Med 2022 02 27;19(2):394-400. Epub 2021 Dec 27.

Department of Urology, University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL, USA.

Background: Submuscular reservoir placement has fulfilled a critical need for patients desiring multicomponent penile implants following pelvic surgery and radiation therapy. Passage of the reservoir through the inguinal canal into the submuscular space is often challenging and carries the risk of the reservoir being placed unknowingly outside of the targeted space.

Aim: To evaluate the safety and accuracy of a direct vision, transfascial (DVT) approach to submuscular reservoir placement. Read More

[Scapular flap, an alternative to the radial forearm flap in phalloplasty: Advantages and limitations].

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2022 Feb 20;67(1):49-56. Epub 2021 Dec 20.

Hospices civils de Lyon, Lyon, France.

Introduction: Antebrachial phalloplasty is considered as the standard technique in total penile reconstruction. This technique allows the creation of a phallus and a neourethra in one step at the cost of significant sequelae of the donor site. Thus, this technique has been replaced in some centers by other techniques such as the MSLD flap or the ALT flap. Read More

Distance From Critical Pelvic Structures: Radiographic Comparison of High Submuscular and Space of Retzius IPP Reservoir Placement Techniques.

Urology 2022 02 10;160:136-141. Epub 2021 Dec 10.

Department of Urology, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX. Electronic address:

Objective: To evaluate the distance from critical pelvic structures (CPS, defined as bladder and iliac vessels) among inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) reservoirs placed into the space of Retzius (SOR) and high submuscular (HSM) locations using cross-sectional imaging. IPP reservoir placement into the HSM location has been proposed as a strategy to prevent injury due to greater distance from CPS.

Methods: Our institutional database was retrospectively reviewed to identify men who underwent IPP insertion between 2007 and 2020 and had available cross-sectional abdominopelvic imaging after the time of surgery. Read More
