Abstract Introduction Evidence on penile enhancement interventions is lacking. Nonetheless, many non–evidence-based solutions are readily available. Aim To investigate enhancement and nonenhancement interventions in men without penile abnormalities seeking to increase penis size. Methods We performed a systematic review with no time restrictions adhering to the PRISMA guidelines. Studies with fewer than 10 cases or including men with organic penile pathologies or previous penile surgeries were e...

Despite the controversy regarding penile augmentation (PA), glans penis augmentation (GPA) is used in penile reconstructive surgery in selected patients with small glans penis. Since 2003, injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) gel has been used for GPA. The attractiveness of HA gel fillers and interest in this technique have led to the use of other fillers for GPA, particularly irreversible fillers that improve the longevity of HA gels. Conversely, indirect glans augmentation via implantation of dermo...

Abstract Introduction Plaque incision and grafting (PIG) is indicated for men with complex or severe penile curvature and, despite a multitude of incision types and grafting materials having been used, no individual technique has proven superiority. Aim To assess outcomes following PIG and to understand the operative technique. Methods A systematic review was performed to find all relevant studies reporting on use of the PIG technique to correct curvature resulting from Peyronie’s disease. Studi...

Abstract Background Previous studies of penile traction therapy (PTT) devices have demonstrated limited/no efficacy when combined with intralesional therapies for Peyronie’s disease (PD). Recently, randomized data have demonstrated the efficacy of a novel PTT device, RestoreX, developed in cooperation with the Mayo Clinic, in men with PD. Aim To assess the safety and efficacy of treatment with the RestoreX device plus collagenase Clostridium histolyticum (CCH) compared with CCH alone and CCH wit...

Abstract Introduction Patients with Peyronie’s disease (PD) and erectile dysfunction (ED) concomitant with shortening or other malformations benefit from prosthesis implantation and penile lengthening procedures. Aim To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a multi-incisional technique with penile prosthesis implantation with multiple corporeal incisions and collagen grafting for the surgical management of complex cases of PD with ED and severe penile shortening. Methods From February 2015–May 201...

The purpose of this study was to report the outcomes of patients who underwent penile implantation with AMS 700 LGX inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) in a single center by a single surgeon. A total of 342 patients with erectile dysfunction who underwent AMS 700 LGX IPP implantation between October 2014 and April 2016 were included in this study. All patients were evaluated using the International Index of Erectile Function questionnaire preoperatively and at 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively....

Abstract Introduction A shorter penis is a frequent complaint following penile prosthesis implantation (PPI), and a large redundant suprapubic fat pad can conceal the penis and possibly compromise patient and partner satisfaction with length. Aim To evaluate feasibility and outcome of same-session, same-incision, PPI and suprapubic lipectomy (SPL). Methods In 22 patients, SPL was performed through an abdominal crease incision. Through the same incision, the superficial perineal pouch was opened ...

Objective To accurately characterize the effect of penile traction therapy (PTT) on stretched penile length (SPL) after primary treatment for men with PD. Materials and Methods A systematic search was performed for studies that evaluated the correction of PD using penile traction as secondary treatment published through January 2018. Studies were included if (1) a singular primary treatment of PD (injection or surgical treatment) was performed for all included men, (2) if there was a control gro...

Abstract Introduction The sliding technique (ST), commonly done with a subcoronal circumcising incision with penile degloving, has been used to restore penile size in patients with severe Peyronie’s disease (PD) and erectile dysfunction, but with a potential risk of ischemic injury to the glans penis. Aim To provide detailed surgical techniques regarding the nondegloving ventral incision and report our initial experience with this approach to perform the ST and penile prosthesis placement in pat...
