Penile implant surgery for Peyronie’s
Around 30% of patients suffering from Peyronie’s disease will also suffer from severe erectile dysfunction.
Although it is not entirely clear whether Peyronie’s leads to erectile dysfunction or the risk factors for these two diseases developing together, it is imperative that before proceeding with any treatment for Peyronie’s, a detailed evaluation of the erectile function of the patient is required.
For patients suffering from severe erectile dysfunction which does not respond to non-surgical treatment options, a simple straightening of the penile axis will not be adequate as insufficient rigidity may persist and impede sexual intercourse. These patients are best served with a penile implant (otherwise referred to as a penile prosthesis).
Penile prosthesis surgery involves replacing the damaged natural erection mechanism (corpora cavernosa), with a mechanical device, the penile prosthesis, that in effect allows the patient to induce erections on demand.
