PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The aim of this review is to discuss the recent advances in surgical techniques for the correction of Peyronie's disease. A review of the literature published in 2002 and 2003 regarding surgical treatment was performed in preparation for this article. RECENT FINDINGS: The surgical treatment of Peyronie's disease remains a debated topic. Generally, surgical therapy for Peyronie's disease can be divided into three main categories: wedge resection/plication surgeries; plaque excision/incision with grafting procedures; and the placement of a penile prosthesis. New reports have investigated suture selection, graft acceptability, and new surgical approaches. These new surgical enhancements will give urologists a greater choice in the surgical management of Peyronie's disease. This will aid the ability of the urologist to tailor the therapy necessary for each individual patient. SUMMARY: The correction of acquired penile deformity seen in Peyronie's disease patients can be a challenge for the practising urologist. Newer advancements in surgical techniques and materials will allow the urologist greater treatment options. The degree of curvature, the type of deformity, erectile dysfunction, and penile length are all characteristics that are assessed in choosing the best surgical intervention in Peyronie's disease. Surgical therapy can be quite beneficial for patients who suffer from penile deformity and can greatly improve their quality of life.
