Word from The Editor-In-Chief

It is with great pride that I welcome you to participate in the Journal of Prosthetic Urology (VJPU). The journal was created by the ISSM to serve as a forum for sexual medicine to allow its members to exchange notable ideas via the visual medium. Our members are scattered across the globe and prosthetic urology is a tiny subspecialty of sexual medicine. A specific goal was to facilitate the transmission of surgical technique knowledge regarding the implantation of surgical devices related to sexual medicine.

How to Perform a Penile Duplex Doppler Ultrasound

Author: Brian P Dick, Rob Drury, Joseph Kim, Hosam Shalaby, Suresh Sikka, Wayne JG Hellstrom, Omer Raheem

Key Words: Penile duplex doppler ultrasound, Peyronie’s disease, Erectile dysfunction

This video covers how to perform a penile duplex doppler ultrasound (PDDU). A PDDU is performed as part of the normal work-up for erectile dysfunction (ED). It helps determine if a patient’s ED is due to arterial insufficiency, venous leakage, or a combination of the two. Additionally, PDDU can be used to assess Peyronie’s disease and provides in-depth information on plaque size and location, as well as the structural abnormalities in the corpora.

In this video, we demonstrate a step-by-step protocol and highlight take-home tips and tricks for PDU. This video serves as a resource for clinicians who are seeking to familiarize themselves with the methodology of performing a PDDU.
