Fracture Penis: Our Experience with 29 Cases in a Tertiary Care Hospital, Odisha

Abstract

Background: Penile fracture is a surgical condition commonly occurs due to blunt trauma to the erect penis during masturbation or sexual intercourse. In this study we share our experience in treating 29 such cases. Methods: The data of 29 patients from medical records and outpatient follow up visits were collected retrospectively at our hospital. Results: The mean age of the patients was of 24 ± 2.5years; trauma during coitus was the most common cause of the penile fracture. All fractures were repaired on an emergency basis via subcoronal incision. One patient had longitudinal rupture site. One patient had associated urethral injury. Postoperatively, all patients voided with good flow and had erections with adequate rigidity. Conclusion: Penile fracture diagnosis is mostly clinical. Early surgical intervention and repair carries excellent outcome.
