The goal of surgical treatment of Induratio Penis Plastica should be the achievement of the best aesthetic and functional result with the lowest side-effects. During the last two years different techniques have been proposed for the cases with conserved erectile function, such as Nesbit's technique, excision or incision of the plaque followed by implants of autologous (dermal, saphena vein) or heterologous (dura madre, gore-tex) patches. The criteria for the choice of the most appropriated surgical technique include the curvature degree, the plaque dimension and the penis length. In our experience 6 months after the surgical correction a remaining curvature was observed in 4/38 patients (10%), only 1 of whom needed a new surgical treatment. One case of erectile disfunction occurred, treated by intra-cavernous injection of PgE1.
