Abstract

Objective: To evaluate and present satisfaction rates of our patients and their partners after 3 part inflatable penile prosthesis implantation. Materials and methods: We searched our hospital electronic data for patients who underwent inflatable penile prosthesis implantation between January 2008 and July 2013. Computer and archived file data were used to get information and reach the patients. We made telephone calls to patients and asked questionnaires about self and partner satisfaction rates. Results: 36 patients underwent prosthesis implantation during the 5 year period. We were able to reach by telephone call 18 of them. The mean age of 18 patients was 55.7 ± 9.4 years and mean body mass index was 24.6 ± 2.1 kg/m2. The etiology was diabetes mellitus on 14 (77.8%) and radical pelvic surgery on 4 (22.2%) patients. 14 of 18 patients had penile Doppler ultrasound test. Doppler ultrasound demonstrated venous insufficiency in 8 and arterial insufficiency in 6 patients. Mean time from implantation to study was 20.8 ± 13.9 months. Out of 18 patients 2 had prosthesis removal operation because of infection in one patient and perforation in the other. Satisfaction rate was 88.9%, and recommendation rate was 94.4%. Causes of dissatisfaction were pain in one patient and insufficient rigidity plus shortening of the penis in the other one. Partner satisfaction rate was 94.4%. Conclusion: Penile Prosthesis Implantation (PPI) is the gold standard treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) irresponsive to medical treatment. Infection and mechanical failure rates are going to be less according to the improvements in synthetic materials and coverings of the prosthesis, so patient and partner satisfaction rates will be higher.
