Congenital Penile Curvature Treatment In Dubai
Congenital penile curvature (penis curvature from birth), or chordee, is defined as a congenital process which can be associated with hypospadias and is apparent by a curvature of the erect penis. The curvature of the penis is usually only noticed during erection when the erect penis bends up, down, or to the side because one side of the penis is more elastic or larger than the other. This condition may be painful or can cause difficult sex for the patient or his partner. The treatment for congenital penile curvature is easily available in different hospitals and clinics near to your place and Bizrahmed is amongst the pioneering clinics who are more focused on Men’s health treatment in Dubai.
Symptoms of Congenital Penile Curvature
Patients with this condition are described to have a curved penis during an erection. It is usually first recognized during puberty or early adulthood.
What causes congenital penile curvature?
Although the actual cause of penile curvature is unclear, urologists in our clinic Bizrahmed, believe that it is related to the unequal growth of erectile chambers on both sides of the penis. In most cases, men suffering from this condition are usually born with it.
How is Penile Curvature Diagnosed?
Your sexual and medical history will be taken by the doctor, which will be enough for diagnosing penile congenital curvature. More insights would be gained when the doctor examines you while your penis will erect. Vasoactive drugs will help you facilitate the erection for examining.
Importance of Early Diagnosis:
Urologists usually diagnose penile curvature after injecting a drug into your penis to make it stiff. The curvature can point in any direction, but the most common bend is downward. This makes it hard-to-penetrate during sexual intercourse. In the case of severe bending, this condition can cause pain and difficulties for the affected individual and their partner, leading to unsatisfactory intercourse.
Men with this condition may also feel embarrassed due to the abnormal appearance of their penis, which can lead to high-stress levels. But penile curvature treatment can erase their embarrassment. Urologists recommend surgical correction for all patients with penile curvature greater than 20 degrees. An experienced urologist can correct the curvature by bending the shorter side of the penis.
Visiting our clinic at Bizrahmed for a check-up will help you early diagnose the disease.
Surgical Cases of Congenital Penile Curvature
Currently, all available treatments are surgical. To date, no non-surgical treatment including oral medications, injections or topical therapy has been used to correct congenital penile curvature. External penile traction therapy has been used successfully in some cases.
A variety of surgical procedures have been used, but all essentially work on the principle of shortening the convex side to equal the concave aspect. The initial manoeuvres are similar, usually by making a degloving circumferential incision proximal to the head of the penis.
- Nesbit procedure
- Yachia procedure
- Essed-Schroeder procedure
- 16 dot procedure
- Tunica albuginea plication (TAP) procedure
All these procedures have a low risk of penile shortening, chronic postoperative pain, infection, bleeding, change in penile sensation, and erectile dysfunction. Clearly, the primary advantage is that it can be done quickly, as an outpatient, with minimal blood loss and a high rate of penile straightening with a low rate of new erectile dysfunction.
