Penile curvature can be acquired/ congenital, which can make the sexual intercourse painful/ difficult based on the severity of the condition and the amount of internal bleeding due to the plaque. Congenital penile curvature is caused by an scar ie invisible plaque under the penile shaft or can be left to right that is laterally along the penis. Acquired penile curvature is caused by an scar ie invisible plaque in the corpus cavernosa along the penis, this is also known as Peyronie’s disease. More susceptible than the younger and older men are the middle aged men. The scar tissue does not allow full erection and hence the penis appears curved during an erection.
Dr. Prabhudev M Salanki offers Peyronie’s Disease Surgery.
Following are Penile Surgery Techniques:
|Surgery Procedure||In order to pull the penis to normal or middle, stitches are used on that side of the penis which is longer.||Incision is used on shorter penis side. To match the longer side, a graft (pig/vein) or small intestine graft is placed||To straighten the penis and correct erection, a prosthesis is applied.|
|Penile length||Same length as the flaccid state stretched penis.||Half to 1 inch longer than the length of the stretched penis||Same length as the stretched penis|
|Post Surgery Impotency Risk||Very rare||Depends on the penile circulation & varies from 10 to 50%||N/A|
|Operation Span||Only an hour||3 – 4 hours||3 – 4 hours|
|Anesthesia Given||Sedation combined with local||Epidural/ General||Epidural/ General|
|Hospital Stay||No Hospital Stay||Overnight||Overnight|
|Start regular work||1 day||2 – 3 days||2 – 3 weeks|
|Sexual intercourse resume in||5 weeks||8 weeks||5 – 6 weeks|
|Other Risks||Not effective for the hourglass deformity/ indentation.||The second incision might be necessary if vein is used||Infection risk is high|
