Patch bulging after plaque incision and grafting procedure for Peyronie’s disease. Surgical repair with a collagen fleece
AbstractThe incision/excision and grafting techniques (PIG) for surgical therapy of Peyronie’s disease (PD) have gained popularity in recent years. Several different graft materials have been used but the ideal graft has yet to be established. The use of grafting materials could cause complications. In the daily clinical practice it will always be more frequent to manage complications arising from their use. We present herein the case of a patch bulging repaired with a ready-to-use collagen fleece (Tachosil®, Takeda, Linz, Austria, Europe) in a 61 years old man subjected to intervention of geometric corporoplasty with Paulo Egydio technique using an acellular collagen material (Xenform® patch, Boston Scientific, Natick, MA, USA) as graft. We also discuss the possible implications of PIG procedure.
