Use of Himplant® for correction of residual deformity following prior treatment of peyronie's disease: a case series.

Over the years, numerous non-surgical and surgical treatment options have been explored for Peyronie's disease. Current options may result in incomplete correction of the deformity, which can be bothersome to the patient. This is a two-center case series of three patients who had previously undergone treatment for Peyronie's disease. Patient 1 underwent plication with extratunical grafting. Patient 2 underwent a series of Xiaflex® injections and then subsequent surgical plication for residual curvature. Patient 3 underwent a series of Xiaflex® injections. The Himplant® subcutaneous silicone penile prosthesis was placed in a standardized manner through a scrotal incision in all cases to mask residual penile deformities and enhance penile girth after Peyronie's disease treatment. Patients were contacted and asked 18 questions regarding satisfaction and erectile function with the responses recorded. This pilot study presents findings of high patient satisfaction, increases in flaccid penile length and girth, and an acceptable profile of adverse events following Himplant® placement. Based on our limited experience, we would consider offering Himplant® implantation when residual curvature is <40° and the penile indentation does not cause instability/buckling during penetrative sexual activity. Further research and larger studies are warranted to validate these findings and assess long-term outcomes and patient-reported satisfaction.
