Venous Ligation: A Novel Strategy for Glans Enhancement in Penile Prosthesis Implantation

Figure 2

Pelvic X-ray film of 30° oblique view of a 65-year-old male. He underwent the first surgery somewhere in 2005. A cold glans syndrome prompted to receive the venous ligation surgery. (a) The glanular radius was enhanced from 28 mm to 34 mm after the penile venous surgery. The corporeal length was 119 mm from X-ray, and it was 180.0 mm from implant surgery; however 90.0 mm × 60° (1.73205080757) = 206.1 mm. (b) The DDV was ligated at the level of retrocoronal and hilum region. Enhancement was demonstrated in both the glans penis and entire penile shaft after a contract medium was injected to the glans penis via a #23 scalp needle.
