Change in Penile Length Following Bilateral Nerve-Sparing Radical Prostatectomy
Some men complain of changes in the shape or dimensions of their penis after undergoing radical prostatectomy (removal of the prostate) for prostate cancer. Changes in penile dimensions include shortening or decreased girth. Changes in shape include a curvature or bending of the penis, and/or the appearance of indentation. These changes may be associated with formation of scar tissue involving the covering of the erection chambers, known as "plaque". The appearance of indurated plaque and a resultant curvature or indentation is a well described medical condition known as "Peyronie's Disease" and may occur in men who did or did not undergo radical prostatectomy. The purpose of this study is to evaluate these changes in penile shape and dimensions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Surgical insertion of cylindric hydraulic devices for the treatment of organic ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION.
The inability in the male to have a PENILE ERECTION due to psychological or organ dysfunction.
Rigid, semi-rigid, or inflatable cylindric hydraulic devices, with either combined or separate reservoir and pumping systems, implanted for the surgical treatment of organic ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION.
Inability to achieve and maintain an erection (ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION) due to defects in the arterial blood flow to the PENIS, defect in venous occlusive function allowing blood drainage (leakage) from the erectile tissue (corpus cavernosum penis), or both.
A condition characterized by hardening of the PENIS due to the formation of fibrous plaques on the dorsolateral aspect of the PENIS, usually involving the membrane (tunica albuginea) surrounding the erectile tissue (corpus cavernosum penis). This may eventually cause a painful deformity of the shaft or constriction of the urethra, or both.
This study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of AA4500 in improving the impact of Peyronie's disease on quality of life and improving penile curvature in men with Peyronie's disea...
When a bilateral nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy (RP) is performed, recovery of erectile function (rigid erections) is reported for up to 80% of patients, who are less than 60 years ol...
Because of the high incidence of post-radiation erectile dysfunction (ED), up to 72% after external-beam radiotherapy, this patient category represents a most difficult therapeutic challen...
The purpose of this study is to perform a randomized prospective study to evaluate whether the vacuum erection device facilitates an earlier return of erectile function post radical prosta...
This study is designed to assess the effectiveness of the Coloplast Titan Inflatable Penile Prosthesis (IPP) at maintaining or increasing penile length after implantation of the device. It...
Peyronie's disease is postulated to be initiated by repetitive minor traumas to the fully or partially erect penis. We investigated Peyronie's disease prospectively in cases treated for penile fractur...
We evaluated penile prosthesis implantation with tunica albuginea-relaxing incisions without grafting in the treatment of Peyronie's disease associated with erectile dysfunction. Between April 2005 an...
ABSTRACT Introduction. Erectile dysfunction (ED) frequently accompanies Peyronie's disease (PD) and changes the therapeutic approach. Aim. To evaluate a single-center experience with inflatable penile...
No oral medication has proved to be clearly beneficial for Peyronie's disease (PD). We investigated the safety and efficacy of coenzyme Q(10) (CoQ(10)) supplementation in patients with early chronic P...
The long-term outcomes of 157 patients affected by Peyronie's disease (PD) who underwent penile straightening with Egydio's technique between January 2004 and December 2008 are reported. Only patients...
