Management of intraoperative penile implant complications

Management of intraoperative penile implant complications The three-piece inflatable penile prosthesis has the highest patient satisfaction and lowest mechanical revision rate of any medically implanted device. Revisions of inflatable penile prostheses are more often required for nonmechanical reasons than for device failure. Intraoperative complications of penile implant placement can be distressing for the prosthetic surgeon, but with recognition of the dilemma, most of these complications can be navigated with excellent postoperative results. More than half of these intraoperative complications occur during dilatation of the corpora cavernosa. Dilation of the corpora cavernosa is a critical step in the placement of any type of penile prosthesis and can be especially difficult in a patient with corporal fibrosis.

Abstract

The three-piece inflatable penile prosthesis has the highest patient satisfaction and lowest mechanical revision rate of any medically implanted device. Revisions of inflatable penile prostheses are more often required for nonmechanical reasons than for device failure. Intraoperative complications of penile implant placement can be distressing for the prosthetic surgeon, but with recognition of the dilemma, most of these complications can be navigated with excellent postoperative results. More than half of these intraoperative complications occur during dilatation of the corpora cavernosa. Dilation of the corpora cavernosa is a critical step in the placement of any type of penile prosthesis and can be especially difficult in a patient with corporal fibrosis. This review article summarizes the techniques, outcomes, and new developments in the field of complicated penile prosthetic surgery.
