Penile plication techniques with or without degloving offer a minimally invasive option for the treatment of penile curvature.
To review the outcomes of penile plication surgery and patient satisfaction with and without degloving of the penis.
We conducted a retrospective analysis of 52 patients who underwent penile plication for the treatment of Peyronie disease or congenital penile curvature.
Surgical success rates, complications, and patient satisfaction determined with the Treatment Benefit Scale were compared between groups.
The overall surgical success rate was 92.3% at a mean follow-up of 18.84 ± 23.51 months. There were no intraoperative complications. In the degloving group, 42.6% of patients were greatly satisfied and 42.6% had better outcomes; in the without degloving group, 61.5% of patients were greatly satisfied and 30.8% had better outcomes. Comparison of outcomes was not statistically significant between groups.
The results of the present study indicate the two techniques can be used for penile plication.
With or without degloving, penile plication is safe and effective and provides high patient satisfaction. Kadirov R, Coskun B, Kaygisiz O, et al. Penile Plication With or Without Degloving of the Penis Results in Similar Outcomes. Sex Med 2017;X:XXX-XXX.
