Introduction: Peyronie俟Q製 disease is an acquired penile deformity with a variety of presentations, caused by the formation of fibrous plaques within the tunica albuginea, leading to bio-mechanical and vascular abnormalities. The objective is to investigate the 18 years outcome of patients with Peyronie俟Q製 disease treated with penile corporoplasty (Yachia technique) in our department. Materials and Methods: One hundred and seventeen patients underwent surgical treatment for PD between 1991 and 2009 and were retrospectively evaluated. We used the Levine and Lenting俟Q製 algorithm for surgical treatment. Data was obtained from medical records, clinical evaluation, and telephone interview. Post-operative follow-up was at 6 weeks and 12 months. The mean time of follow-up was 14 months (12-19 months). Main Outcome Measures: Patient demographic, co-morbidities, erectile function, penile curvature, and surgical intervention were documented. The main outcome measures of this study are postoperative complications, surgical purpose, and patients and partner俟Q製 satisfaction rates. Results: Surgical aim was obtained in 106 patients (success rate of 94.6%). Complications occurred in 4.5% of patients, but most of these were mild. At 6 weeks, complete straightening of the penis was achieved in 57 patients (50.9%), and partial straightening which allow sexual intercourse in 49 patients (43.7%). Nine patients report gland hypoesthesia and almost all report subjective perception of penis shortening (0.5 cm to 5 cm). Twenty-two patients developed recurrent deformity at 12 months follow-up, with compromise of sexual intercourse in 7 patients. Patients俟Q responses to our questionnaire showed that overall 88.4% of the patients and partners were satisfied with the surgical results. Conclusion: According to the results of this long-term, retrospective study, surgical correction, using the Yachia technique, is an excellent option for patients with functional impairment from their Peyronie俟Q製 disease, especially.
