Tunical lengthening with graft and penile prosthesis implantation
Warning! This video contains highly graphic scenes of surgery.
In patients with advanced Peyronie’s disease and erectile dysfunction, penile prosthesis implantation alone or in combination with modelling manoeuvres may not be enough to correct the curvature and therefore release of the scarred plaque on the tunica albuginea and grafting of the defect may be necessary.
This is a very delicate procedure as the fine nervous and vascular structures of the penis need to be lifted off the tunica albuginea in an atraumatic fashion, to prevent postoperative loss of sensation.
In the expert hands of large volume surgeons, penile prosthesis implantation in patients with Peyronie’s Disease yields excellent cosmetic and functional results, with more than 98% of patients able to engage in satisfactory penetrative sexual intercourse.
