OBJECTIVES To evaluate the results of the Nesbit technique in patients with congenital penile curvature. METHODS From January 1990 to July 2002, 19 patients with congenital penile curvature were treated following the Nesbit technique. Mean age was 25.89 (range 19-37), and the most common curvature was ventral (73.68%). RESULTS Complete correction was achieved in 18 patients (94.73%), and 17 patients reported a high degree of satisfaction (89.47%). CONCLUSIONS The Nesbit technique is an easy and safe procedure for the correction of congenital penile incurvation.
