The best surgical option for the management of severe cases of Peyronie's disease is currently a matter of debate. To determine medium-term outcomes and complications after treatment of severe Peyronie's disease by porcine small intestinal submucosa (SIS) grafts, we retrospectively reviewed 33 consecutive plaque incisions followed by 4-ply SIS grafting in 28 patients (2002-2009). Postoperative complications, penile length preservation, de novo ED, penile curvature correction and curvature recurrence rates were recorded. Median patient age was 54 years (38-69 years). Median preoperative curvature was 90° (30-90°) (stable for at least 6 months). Six patients (21%) had preoperative ED. There were few postoperative complications (no cases of infection, haematoma (n=2), penile hypoesthesia (n=1), patch rejection and migration (n=1)). Subjective penile shortening and de novo ED were observed in 7 (25%) and 3 (11%) patients, respectively. The success rate for the procedure (straight penis or curvature ≤20° and ability to have intercourse) was 67% (22/33). Four patients achieved curvature correction after a repeat procedure with a new SIS graft. Eleven patients experienced recurrence within 3 months of surgery. After a median follow-up of 9 months (3-94), 22 patients (79%) had a satisfactory curvature correction.
