Immediate Placement of Penile Prosthesis for the Management of Ischemic Priapism as First-line Treatment.

Eur Urol Focus 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Department of Urology, Tulane University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, LA, USA. Electronic address:

In patients presenting with early ischemic priapism, proceeding with the conventional paradigm is recommended. In those presenting late (>48 h), penile prosthesis placement can easily be performed 2-6 wk later, with no increase in surgical difficulty or morbidity. Immediate penile prosthesis implantation should be reserved for motivated patients who understand the increased associated risks, have evidence of corporal fibrosis on imaging, and are being treated in a center of excellence.

Report of Three Cases of AKI Following Weight-Based Gentamicin Prophylaxis for IPP Implantation: Potential Concerns for Patients with Preexisting Conditions.

Case Rep Urol 2018 4;2018:3479202. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Division of Urology, Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, West Hospital, 7th Floor, 1200 E. Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23298-0118, USA.

Despite the known nephrotoxicity of gentamicin, in 2008 the American Urological Association published guidelines recommending single high-dose weight-based gentamicin prophylaxis of 5 mg/kg for procedures involving urologic prostheses. These guidelines are based on the theoretical renal safety and improved antimicrobial activity of a single large dose of gentamicin. However, the risk of nephrotoxicity after weight-based gentamicin prophylaxis specifically in penile prosthetic surgery has never been established with evidence-based studies. Read More

Modified staged repair of bladder exstrophy: a strategy to prevent penile ischemia while maintaining advantage of the complete primary repair of bladder exstrophy.

J Pediatr Urol 2018 Sep 25. Epub 2018 Sep 25.

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, Sidra Medical and Research Center, Doha, Qatar. Electronic address:

Introduction: Penile ischemic injury is a reported catastrophic complication after complete primary repair of exstrophy (CPRE). Aiming to improve the bladder exstrophy-epispadias repair outcomes, the study institution adopted a modified staged exstrophy repair to incorporate the advantages of CPRE by avoiding concurrent epispadias repair and adding bilateral ureteral re-implantation and bladder neck tailoring (staged repair of bladder exstrophy with bilateral ureteral re-implantation [SRBE-BUR]) at the initial repair. It was hypothesized that such modifications minimize penile complications and prevent upper tract deterioration while enhancing bladder resistance and consequent capacity. Read More

Department of Experimental Medicine and Surgery, Urology Unit, Tor Vergata University of Rome, Via Montpellier 1, Rome 00133, Italy.

Phalloplasty represents the most complete genitoperineal transformation for trans men. Although voiding while standing is a priority for most trans men, most patients want to use the neophallus for sexual experience after they are accustomed to their new voiding abilities. Different techniques have been used to obtain rigidity in the neophallus, often resulting in complications and failure. Read More

Effect of operative local anesthesia on postoperative pain outcomes of inflatable penile prosthesis: prospective comparison of two medications.

Int J Impot Res 2018 Jun 25;30(3):93-96. Epub 2018 May 25.

Urological Research Network, Hialeah, FL, 33016, USA.

Few studies have examined the roles of dorsal penile nerve block (DPNB) and penile ring block (PRB) in surgery of inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) placement. We sought to compare the postoperative pain outcomes of two different medications used in DPNB plus PRB. We thus carried out a prospective study of patients with erectile dysfunction who underwent "de novo" IPP placement between January 2013 and June 2013. Read More

A Comparative Study Between 2 Different Grafts Used as Patches After Plaque Incision and Inflatable Penile Prosthesis Implantation for End-Stage Peyronie's Disease.

J Sex Med 2018 Jun 9;15(6):848-852. Epub 2018 May 9.

Urology Clinic, Città della Salute e della Scienza, University of Turin, Turin, Italy.

Background: Although many grafts have been used for plaque incision with grafting (PIG) and penile prosthesis (PP) implantation, there is no evidence that favors 1 specific graft over another.

Aim: To compare fibrin-coated collagen fleece (TachoSil; Baxter International, Deerfield, IL, USA) with porcine small intestinal submucosa (SIS; Cook Biotech, West Lafayette, IN, USA) as grafts.

Methods: From January 2007 to January 2015, 60 non-randomized consecutive patients affected by end-stage Peyronie disease underwent PIG and PP implantation (AMS 700CX; Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA, USA). Read More

Comparison of Infrapubic vs Penoscrotal Approaches for 3-Piece Inflatable Penile Prosthesis Placement: Do We Have a Winner?

Sex Med Rev 2018 Oct 2;6(4):631-639. Epub 2018 May 2.

Department of Urology, IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, University of Milan, Milan, Italy.

Background: The 3-piece inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) is the gold standard treatment for male erectile dysfunction when other less invasive approaches are contra-indicated or unacceptable for the patient. There are currently 2 surgical approaches for IPP implantation: the penoscrotal (PS) and the infrapubic (IP) incision.

Aim: To assess the most recent evidence on the impact of surgical approach for 3-piece IPP implantation in patients with erectile dysfunction. Read More
