Key words: penile implant, column strength rigidity
The video covers the way that form meets function in terms of understanding penile anatomy through the lens of penile implant surgery. With this HD video demonstration, we show that the erect penis has 5 major factors- paired structures, divergence of the crus, sitting on the hard bones of the ischium, half in/half out anatomy, and thicker base versus top. In the video, the anatomic factors come to life giving a demonstration of how column strength and axial rigidity is derived from various penile anatomic factors. Two medical students who are learning the approach given a demonstration and description that engages the listener.
