Clinical Study Preservation of Cavernosal Erectile Function after Soft Penile Prosthesis Implant in Peyronie’s Disease: Long-Term Followup

By Marco Grasso, Caterina Lania, Flavio Fortuna, Salvatore Blanco and Igor Piacentini

Abstract

The aim of this retrospective study is to evaluate the long-term followup of soft penile SSDA prosthesis, without plaque surgery in the treatment of Peyronie’s disease. This study included 12 men with Peyronie’s disease who underwent placement of a penile prosthesis. All patients were followed for at least 6 years. Prosthesis straightened the penile shaft in all cases, restoring patient sexual satisfaction. No operative or postoperative complications occurred, and no reoperations were needed. All patients have undergone further examination with basal and dynamic eco color Doppler. The findings are encouraging as the penis preserves the ability to enhance the tumescence and penile girth. We can conclude that SSDA penile prosthesis is safe and effective in Peyronie’s disease. Copyright © 2008 Marco Grasso et al.
