Penile prosthesis in Peyronie's disease.


Journal Article

Many patients with Peyronie's disease suffer severe penile curvature, impotence, and respond poorly to conservative management. Sixteen patients with intractable Peyronie's disease had surgical incision of Peyronie's plaque and insertion of semi-rigid or inflatable penile implants. Patients had satisfactory results with elimination of curvature and resumption of coitus. Surgical procedures are indicated for impotent patients with Peyronie's disease who are unresponsive to conservative treatment.
