Use Of Tunica Albuginea Crural Graft For Severe Penile Curvature Due To Peyronie's Disease: Long-Term Results

August 09, 2017

ORLANDO, FL (UroToday) - This presentation by Dr. Claudio Teloken et al., from Brazil, reported on long-term results using tunica albugineal grafts from the crural bodies for plaque incision and grafting (PIG) procedures. In a series of 78 patients with a mean follow-up of 65 months, outcomes such as recurrence of curvature, ED, and penile shortening were reported. Curvature recurrence requiring surgical intervention occurred in 7.6% of patients, penile shortening occurred in 8.9%, and post-operative ED occurred in 14.5%.

The authors feel that this technique may decrease the risk of ED that is seen with other graft materials.
