OBJECTIVES: To investigate retrospectively the long-term functional results and quality of life of patients undergoing the Essed-Schröder procedure (a simple plication of the tunica albuginea) to correct penile deviation, using a standardized questionnaire. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 1998 and 2001, 59 patients had surgery in our hospital to correct penile deviation (mean age 40 years at the time of surgery; mean follow-up 30 months for this study). All 59 patients received a standardized questionnaire via mail, of which 50 could be assessed as valid. RESULTS: Of the 50 patients, 22 had a congenital penile deviation and 28 Peyronie's disease. In all patients the penis was completely straightened. The proportion of patients capable of sexual intercourse was significantly higher after surgery (90%) than before (62%). The frequency of pain during intercourse was halved. Of the 50 patients, 60% would have the same operation again, 32% were undecided and 8% would not; 22% were dissatisfied with the results. None of the patients had complete erectile dysfunction after surgery; 74% reported a decrease in penile length and 78% of the patients' partners were satisfied with the outcome. CONCLUSIONS: The tunical plication procedure is simple and minimally invasive for correcting penile deviation. In the opinion of most patients the Essed-Schröder method provides a significant improvement in sexual function and quality of life with maximum protection of erectile function.
