Albeit the present human penile anatomy has remained unchanged for three thousand centuries, and extensive study has been conducted on anatomical architecture and male potency reconstructive strategies for many centuries, it might not above be sustainable.


Given only evidence can speak volumes, and practice is the criterion for testing truth, we sought to report an innovative circumferential approach for fulfilling penile erection restoration and morphology reconstruction on an ambulatory basis microsurgical in recent years.


From October 2013 to October 2020, 33 men aged 21–59 underwent penile venous stripping (PVS) and corporoplasty via a circumferential approach on an ambulatory basis. The abridged five-item version of the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-5), erection hardness scales (EHS), and cavernosography was used for assessment, as required. The PVS entails stripping one deep dorsal vein and two cavernosal veins after every specific emissary vein is microscopically ligated closest to the outer tunica, whereas the para-arterial veins are segmentally ligated. Subsequently, a tunic corporoplasty is conducted before and after artificial erection with autologous venous wall bi-layered patches, whereby a water-tight running suture is undertaken for the inner layer and interrupted for the second layer for idealizing penile morphology using 6-0 nylon.


The average follow-up period was 5.1±1.3 years, and the surgery time was 5.2±1. 4 hours, respectively. The radiopacity was unexceptionally enhanced postoperatively. There was a significant difference (P<0.01) between the preoperative (9.8±2.7) vs. Postoperative IIEF-5 scores (20.7±2.3). The EHS improved on at least one scale. The penile shape (<10°) was deemed reported in 93.9% (31/33) patients.


This combination of physiologically penile venous stripping and anatomy-based corporoplasty is ideally suited to the simultaneous restoration of penile erectile function and morphological reconstruction via a circumferential approach.
