Penile curvature in adults is divided into two main categories the first is congenital penile curvature with orthotopic meatus and the other is acquired curvature which its common causes are Peyronie's disease (PD) and previous penile surgery as for hypospadias repair.The congenital penile curvatures (CPC) which not associated with urethral malformation is a relatively uncommon condition that may present in late adolescent or early adult life. The incidence is estimated to be 0.6 % but the incidence of clinically significant CPC is much lower, as the degree of curvature and sexual dysfunction varies widely Penile curvature may lead to inability for sexual intercourse. These cases require treatment. Acquired penile curvature its most common cause is Peyronie's disease. Peyronie's disease is a fibrotic disorder of the tunica albuginea of the corpora cavernosa that is clinically defined by the presence of a palpable, inelastic tunical plaque. PD is relatively common and affects up to 20.3% of adult men to some degree.
Surgery is gold-standard for treatment of curvature in stable PD. Surgical therapy is subdivided into three main procedures: (1) plication techniques (Penile shortening procedures), (2) grafting procedures with partial plaque excision or incision followed by defect closure with various grafts, and (3) correction of deviation with simultaneous penile prosthesis implantation in patients with ED not responding to medical therapy.
In this study results of different surgical techniques in management of penile curvature will be compared.
