Elist Implant Review Abstract

Penile prosthesis surgery for erectile dysfunction has the highest satisfaction rates among all treatment options but is often associated with subjective and objective loss of penile length and girth following surgery. To present a novel technique using a subcutaneous soft silicone implant for reversal of penile shortening and narrowing after prosthesis surgery, with additional gains in overall penile length and girth. Nine patients were treated with the insertion of a subcutaneous soft silicone penile implant. All patients had previously reported a loss in penile length (0.5–2 cm), and seven of nine patients also reported a loss in penile girth (0.5–2.6 cm) after penile prosthesis surgery. During a follow-up period of 4–24 months, penile length and girth measurements showed a mean increase in length of 2.4 cm (±0.75 cm) and a mean increase in girth of 3.4 cm (±0.94 cm). The additional insertion of a subcutaneous soft silicone implant in patients with decreased penile length and girth after penile prosthesis surgery is an effective treatment option that provides reversal of lost penile length and girth. 

Elist Implant Review Abstract

Introduction: Congenital and acquired penile curvature has a negative impact on penile aesthetics, sexual capabilities, and male psychology. Surgical procedures yield satisfactory correction of curvature, but are usually associated with penile shortening and palpable suture material and nodules under the skin, resulting in patient dissatisfaction. Aims: To present a novel technique using a subcutaneous soft silicone implant for surgical treatment of penile soft tissue deformities with curvature, with prevention of surgery-associated penile shortening and subcutaneous “bumps”, and with additional gains in overall penile length and girth. Method: 3 patients who complained about congenital, post-traumatic, and post-penile surgery associated penile curvature, with concerns about their penile aesthetics and associated negative psychosocial effects, were treated with the insertion of a subcutaneous soft silicone penile implant. Results: During a follow up period of 2 - 12 months (mean: 6.7 ± 3.6 months) all three patients expressed objective and subjective satisfaction regarding the corrective results of the surgery. Penile length and girth measurements during follow-up showed a mean increase in length of 4.3 cm (±1.4 cm) and a mean increase in girth of 3.0 cm (±1.0 cm). Conclusion: The insertion of the subcutaneous soft silicone implant in addition to corporeal fibrotic tissue removal in patients with congenital or acquired penile curvature is an effective option that provides the patient with aesthetic improvements by correcting penile deviation, preventing post-surgical subcutaneous nodule formation that results from the technique and suture material used, and adding penile length and girth. Further prospective studies are required to validate our initial experience.

Silicone blocks and sleeves are simple devices used in cosmetic surgery. They are generally viewed as safe and effective; however, there is little information on their use in the penis.

This study evaluates a large single-surgeon series using a novel silicone sleeve penile implant (Penuma) to cosmetically correct the flaccid penis.

526 patients underwent elective cosmetic penile surgery using a silicone sleeve penile implant between 2009 and 2014. Institutional Review Board approval was obtained for a retrospective analysis, and study consent was obtained from 400 patients. Penile circumference was measured before surgery, immediately after surgery, and 30–90 days after the implant surgery. Using the nonvalidated Augmentation Phalloplasty Patient Selection and Satisfaction Inventory (APPSSI), changes in self-confidence, self-esteem, and satisfaction scores were assayed 6–8 weeks postoperatively. Scores were again assayed 2–6 years postoperatively in 77% of patients. The questionnaires rated patient self-confidence, self-esteem, and satisfaction as very low, low, medium, high, or very high.
