Results of combined Nesbit penile plication with plaque incision and placement of Dacron patch in patients with severe Peyronie's disease.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We treated 9 men with severe curvature of the penis secondary to Peyronie's disease with penile plication and a previously unreported technique of incision of the Peyronie plaque and placement of Dacron patch. All men were potent before penile straightening. At a mean followup of 17.5 months all men achieved good to excellent correction of the deformity and they have remained potent. One patient initially complained of numbness of the glans penis and decreased penile rigidity distal to the Dacron patch but potency returned and the numbness resolved.
