Penile Prosthesis Implantation: Penoscrotal Approach
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the consistent inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual activity. ED has implications for healthcare provision, particularly as men are living longer with higher expectations with regard to sexual health.
The management of ED has been transformed with the introduction of Phosphodiesterase-5-inhibitors (PDE-5i) and Prostaglandins (PGE-1) in the last two decades. However, men with end-stage ED who do not respond to conservative measures may necessitate surgical intervention. This chapter aims to review the indications, patient selection and counselling, types of penile prostheses and describe the surgical technique of penoscrotal approach in penile prosthesis surgery.
