Penile curvature is a common urological disease. Tunical plication for correction of penile curvature has been much popularized being simpler, adjustable to avoid overcorrection, less bleeding, and less postoperative erectile dysfunction. This study aims to assess the results of modified 16-dot plication technique for correction of congenital and acquired penile curvature and avoidance of knot-associated complications. Eighteen patients underwent correction of their penile curvature using the modified 16-dot plication technique between January 2014 and October 2015. Patients' pre and postoperative data were analyzed. The mean age of patients is 44 years old. Of the patients 15 who were available for follow-up, 8 patients had congenital penile curvature (CPC) and 7 had Peyronie's disease (PD). The angle of deviation ranged from 30° to 90°. Erectile function (EF) was assessed preoperative by IIEF score and duplex ultrasound. Postoperative follow-up at 3 and 6 months revealed straight erect penis in all patients. Longer follow-up at 1 to 2 years, 2 patients complained from slight recurrence of curve (<20°) and 2 patients complained of worsening of their erectile function. Penile shortening was noted by 6 patients. None of our patients stated any knot complication or bothersome, nor do hematomas, numbness, or painful erections. The modified 16-dot plication technique for correction if penile curvature is a safe and effective method. This modification allowed the knots to be tucked in the plicate tunical tissue avoiding knot-associated complications. More investigation on a large scale of patients or multicenter studies is recommended.
