Objectives: To assess the outcomes of the surgical techniques used in Peyronie's disease (PD) surgery. Patients and methods: One hundred fifty patients received surgical treatment for PD. Fifteen and 75 patients underwent simple corporoplasties and incision of the plaque, and venous (IV) grafting, respectively, whereas 60 patients with erectile dysfunction underwent penile prosthesis implantation. At follow-up, the erectile function and penile deformity were assessed at 3 and 12 mo postoperatively, and every 6 mo thereafter. Results: Postoperative results were satisfactory in 14 of 15 patients with simple corporoplasties, with a mean angle of deformity and follow-up of 51.0° ± 14.9° and 21.0 ± 9.7 mo, respectively. Among patients undergoing IV grafting with sapheneous vein (mean curvature angle: 61.6° ± 19.5°), 70 were regularly seen with a mean follow-up of 41.7 ± 35.1 mo. Penile curvature was completely straightened in 53 (75.7%) patients, whereas 12.8% and 11.4% had residual curvature less than 20° and more than 20°, respectively. The mean degree of penile curvature of patients with penile prosthesis was 46.9° ± 20.1°. Straightening of the penis was accomplished with implantation of the prosthesis only, manual modeling, plaque incision and grafting (autologous rectus fascia in the majority), incision of the plaque, and penile plication in 35%, 30%, 33.3%, 1.6%, and 1.6%, respectively. In the prosthesis group, two patients had recurrent curvatures. Conclusions: IV grafting is a good option with satisfactory mid- and long-term outcome. Insertion of the prosthesis only and manual modeling correct the curvature in the majority of the patients. For the remaining patients, autologous rectus fascia is an appropriate graft material.
