Background: Surgical reconstruction is the gold standard of treatment for Peyronie’s disease (PD). Grafting procedures provide satisfactory outcomes in patients with complex curvature, short penile length, and without previous erectile dysfunction (ED). We aimed to compare two different grafting methods of reconstruction in patients with PD.
Method: Fifty-two PD patients at Imam-Reza hospital of Mashhad from October 2011 to January 2019 with stable plaque, penile angulation of >60˚, complex curvature, and without ED who consented to cooperate, included in our study and divided into two groups. The first group consists of 26 patients, undergone grafting through a double-Y incision and a single saphenous graft placed within the incision. For the second group, two smaller saphenous vein grafts were placed in the two parallel incisions. ED assessed pre- and post-operational via the International index of erectile function. Penile angulation less than 20 degrees was considered a favorable outcome. Patients followed for 18 months, and sacculation, penile shortening, post-operation infection, and penile hypoesthesia were assessed as complications. We used a paired t-test to compare these two groups.
Results: ED was 25% and 12% in the first and the second group, respectively. Statistics showed no difference between the two groups regarding pre and post-operational ED (P=0.1). Regarding complications during follow-up, sacculation occurred in four patients of the first group and none of the second group patients but no significant difference (P=0.23).
Conclusion: We found no superiority to declare between these two procedures, although regarding the small sample size of our study, further evaluations are needed to establish more reliable results.
