Author information


To assess patient satisfaction and functional results at long term follow-up after surgical correction for Peyronie's disease (Peyronies Disease) and congenital penile curvature (CPC) with the technique of tunical plication.


One hundred and two men operated for Peyronies Disease (n = 76) or CPC (n = 26) in four different departments of urology in public hospitals agreed to answer a six-question telephone questionnaire about treatment satisfaction. Tunica albuginea plication procedures represented the standard surgical approach. Subjects under investigation were correction of the deformity, feeling of bumps under the skin, pain during erection, penile sensory changes, development of erectile dysfunction (Erectile Dysfunction) and postoperative ability for complete vaginal intromission. Subjective response rates were compared using the chi square test on the basis of the etiology of the disease (CPC or Peyronies Disease).


Significant differences (p < 0.05) between patients with CPC and Peyronies Disease were noticed in the prevalence of postoperative penile deformity, sensory changes, Erectile Dysfunction and ability to complete vaginal intromission, Peyronies Disease patients always showing a more pessimistic view. No significant differences (p = ns) were detected in terms of unpleasant nodes under the penile skin or pain during erection.


Long-term outcome after surgical correction for Peyronies Disease and CPC with the technique of tunical plication can be poor. Probably patient expectations are above the real performance of surgical techniques. Preoperative information should be more exhaustive.

  • Age 71. Peyronies from January 2009

The article is from 2007, now we are in 2014.
I think many changes occurred in the surgery field including successful outcome during this time. I know from reading all the posts on this forum from the very beginning.
Hopefully the situation is better today, in any case according to what I am reading on the forum.

Age 71, Peyronies from Jan 2009 following penis fracture during sex. Severe Erectile Dysfunction.
Lost 2" length and a lot of girth. Late start, still VED, Cialis & Pentox helped. Prostate surgery 2014.
Got amazing support on the forum
