Abstract

The surgical technique described by Nesbit was used to correct congenital curvature of the penis in 29 men. In 27 subjects the operation was successful, while in two patients a recurrence of the condition required a second surgical treatment. The present report also includes a discussion of some aspects of differntial diagnosis between asymmetry of the corpora cavernosa, chordee without hypospadia, and congenital short urethra. 1984 American Society of Andrology
