Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To compare the clinical outcomes of Peyronie's disease (PD) patients who were treated by plaque incision and grafting either with tunica vaginalis (TV) or buccal mucosa (BM) grafts.

METHODS: PD patients in BM (n=20) and TV group (n=20) were recruited between 2013 and 2020. Erectile dysfunction was assessed by short form of International Index of Erectile Function Questionnaire (IIEF-5). Technical success was defined as residual curvature ≤15°. Penile Doppler ultrasound was performed at baseline evaluation, 3-, and 24 months. Peak systolic velocity (PSV), end-diastolic velocity (EDV), and resistance index were measured in erect penis. Erect penile length and curvature angle were measured at baseline and at 3, 12, and 24 months.

RESULTS: Mean age of the groups was comparable (47.2±10.8 years in TV vs 46.5±9.9 years in BM groups). Baseline mean penile curvature was 48.0±6.6° (TV) and 50.3±11.6° (BM) (p<0.001). Mean residual curvature at 24-months visits was 12.4±4.9° (TV) and 7.9±3.7° (BM), not significantly different. Technical success rate was 90% for both groups at 24 months. Surgery significantly increased erect penile length in both groups. Mean preoperative IIEF-5 scores were 18.4±2.5 and 17.5±2.2 in TV and BM groups, respectively. In both groups, IIEF-5 scores significantly improved after surgery with no intergroup IIEF-5 difference (20.6±2.6 in TV and 21.3±2.2 in BM). Mean postoperative PSV significantly increased, EDV significantly decreased in both groups, however, there was no significant intergroup difference.

CONCLUSION: Both grafting materials provided similar beneficial effects regarding technical success, erectile dysfunction, and penile length.
