Surgical correction of Peyronie's disease: the Nesbit procedure.

Surgical therapy for the correction of Peyronie's disease is indicated in patients with severe and chronic penile curvature that does not respond to conservative therapy and that is severe enough to prevent sexual intercourse. The penile prosthesis has been shown to be an effective treatment in patients with associated erectile impotence. However, there is disagreement regarding the procedure of choice in patients with Peyronie's disease and adequate erectile function. Because of the inconsistent results reported for grafting techniques, we used the Nesbit procedure in 12 patients with adequate erectile capacity distal to the plaque. Eleven patients reported satisfactory intercourse postoperatively with excellent anatomical results.
