Satisfaction of patients with Peyronie's disease after plaque surgery and bovine pericardium graft

Plaque and bovine pericardium graft surgery is a useful tool for treating Peyronie's disease.

To determine patient satisfaction following this operation.

This was a retrospective, observational and descriptive study. We collected data from the medical records of patients who underwent surgery between 2004 and 2015 and were evaluated through a postoperative satisfaction questionnaire.

Twenty-eight operations were performed. Curve correction was achieved in 26 patients (95.3%). One patient (3.57%) required residual curve correction using Yachia's technique, and 1 patient (3.57%) had a severe complication consisting of prosthetic infection and urethrocutaneous fistulae. Twenty-one patients (75%) expressed satisfaction with the surgery.

Our results show an acceptable level of satisfaction among our patients, with a low number of complications. However, further prospective, controlled and randomised studies are needed.
