INTRODUCTION Placement of an inflatable penile prosthesis in a patient with scarred corporal bodies secondary to priapism or removal of a previously infected implant is a formidable surgical challenge; use of downsized implants has improved chances of successful reimplantation. Nevertheless, patients are frequently dissatisfied with the resulting short(More)
PURPOSE Patients with priapism often develop permanent erectile dysfunction and personal sexual distress. This report is intended to help educate the public by reviewing the varied definitions and classifications of priapism and limited literature reports of pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment outcomes of priapism. The AUA priapism guidelines committee(More)
PURPOSE We performed a long-term multicenter study of the AMS 700CX 3-piece inflatable penile prosthesis, focusing on longevity, morbidity and patient satisfaction in men implanted up to 134 months with a median followup of 47.7 months. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed a large scale retrospective multicenter study in 2 phases. Phase 1 was a medical(More)
An infectious complication involving placement of a penile prosthesis is a disastrous event. A review of more than 300 devices placed between 1979 and 1984 at this center reveals an infectious complication rate of 8.3 per cent. Perioperative risk factors predisposing to infection included reoperation for technical failures, inadequate antibiotic coverage(More)
PURPOSE Although some studies suggest that most infections associated with inflatable penile prosthesis implantation develop within year 1 after surgery, device related infections have been reported 5 years after implantation or later and the infection risk with time is not well characterized. We previously reported a statistically significantly lower(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetic patients may be more prone to penile-implant infections than other men. OBJECTIVE We sought to determine whether revision surgeries due to infection were less common in diabetic men after implantation of an inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) impregnated with minocycline and rifampin (M/R) versus a nonimpregnated prosthesis. DESIGN,(More)
A 44-year-old man suffered a Buschke-Loewenstein tumor that was treated by distal penectomy. Ultrastructurally, this tumor showed widened intercellular spaces, prominent microvilli, decreased numbers of and incompletely developed desmosomes, decreased tonofilaments, cytoplasmic dense bodies, enlarged nucleoli and annular nuclear bodies. These(More)
