Penile plication is highly successful in appropriately selected patients with Peyronie's disease; however, a minority of patients experience residual curvature or delayed recurrence of curvature. Revision surgery outcomes are seldomly reported.
To determine the efficacy of salvage penile plication for the correction of residual and recurrent curvature.
Our institutional review board-approved prospective single-surgeon database of patients with Peyronie's disease was reviewed for cases performed from 2011 to 2019. Patients requiring salvage procedures were analyzed. A successful salvage was defined by residual curvature <20° with patient-reported satisfaction. Potential etiologies for initial plication failure were examined.
The outcomes of this study are subjective and patient-reported success of salvage plication.
Data analysis identified 134 men treated surgically for Peyronie's disease. Management involved plication in 105 (78.4%), incision and grafting in 14 (10.4%), excision and grafting with inflatable penile prosthesis in 7 (5.2%), plication with inflatable penile prosthesis in 6 (4.5%), or grafting, plication, and inflatable penile prosthesis in 2 (1.5%). Mean preoperative degree of curvature before initial surgery was 55° (30°-90°). Of this cohort, 5.2% (n=7) required salvage plication for a median residual or recurrent curvature of 45° (35°-90°). Initially, 3 men (43%) received an 8-dot plication, 3 (43%) underwent 16-dot plication, and 1 (14%) received plaque incision and grafting. Among salvage patients, 4 (57%) had initially satisfying results followed by recurrence of curvature and 3 (43%) desired correction of residual curvature. Salvage plication entailed an 8-dot plication in 3 (42.9%) and a 16-dot plication procedure in 4 (57.1%). The median time to salvage surgery was 9 (3-15) months, with all patients showing intraoperative resolution of curvature. At a median follow-up of 12 (1-20) months, 6 (85.7%) patients reported satisfaction with residual curvature <20°.
Patients with residual or delayed recurrence of curvature after plication for Peyronie's disease can be effectively managed with salvage plication. Deebel NA, Scarberry K, Dutta R, et al.
