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

Figure 3

Pelvic X-ray film of 30° oblique view of a 35-year-old male of traumatic impotence. He underwent the first surgery somewhere in 2006. A mechanical failure of penile prosthesis prompted him to receive an implant revision and the venous ligation surgery for cold glans syndrome. (a) The glanular radius was enhanced from 31 mm to 35 mm after the penile venous surgery. (b) The DDV was ligated at the level of retrocoronal and hilum region. Enhancement was shown in both the glans penis and entire penile shaft after a contract medium was injected to the glans penis via a #23 scalp needle.
