Corporeal Plication for Correction of Penile Curvature

A retrospective analysis was done on 15 men who underwent corrective surgery for penile curvature between December 1989 to March 1993. The period of follow-up ranged from 3 months to 3 years, with a mean of 16 months. All patients underwent corporeal plication, with sutures placed on the convex side of the penile curvature to straighten the penis. Three patients (20%) developed recurrence of their penile curvatures between 3 months to 1 year after their surgery. All 3 patients underwent a repeat operation. Thirteen patients (86.6%) were satisfied with the operation, and had a straight erect penis which did not cause pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse. One patient (6.7%) was particularly upset with a shortened penis. The last patient (6.7%) developed venous leak impotence, and subsequently underwent ligation and stripping of the deep dorsal vein of his penis.
