Congenital isolated penile torsion in adults: untwist with plication

Urology. 2002 Mar;59(3):438-40. doi: 10.1016/s0090-4295(01)01596-5.


To correct congenital isolated penile torsion, we delineated a parabolic curve as a counterdirection to the torsion after artificial erection was induced. Two areas along the curve were chosen and plicated with two interrupted U-shaped sutures. Satisfactory functional and cosmetic results were achieved in 3 patients.
