Surgery is a treatment for correction of penile curvature in Peyronie's disease. Partial plaque excision and grafting is recommended for severe and complex curvature.
Patients with stable penile curvature who underwent a partial plaque excision and grafting between January 2017 and April 2018 were retrospectively included. The graft was realized using a self-adhesive collagen fleece (Tachosil®). Penile curvature, penile length and erection score were measured before and after surgery.
Twenty-one patients, aged 52,13 (18-70 years) were included. The average follow-up after surgery was 8,36 months (1-14 months). Early complications included two hematomas and one dysuria (Clavien 1). One patient had a penile prosthesis hernia 3 months after surgery, and needed a new surgery (Clavien 3B). Patients stayed at the hospital 1.38 night (1-5) and operating time was 158min (102-249min). Average penile curvature after surgery was 5.88° (0-30°), while it was 82.75° (50-100°) before. Erection score increased from 7.62 (3-10) to 7.86 (4-10). There was no modification of the penile length 11.92cm (11-14.5) after surgery and 12.09cm (10-15cm) before.
The use of TachoSil® reduces the operative time, is easy to use and has hemostatic properties at a low cost. However, prospective randomized trial and long terms results are required to confirm our encouraging results.
