Placement of a Malleable Penile Prosthesis in the subcoronal approach

Author: Scott Brimley, Bryan Herzog, Ayad Yousif, Wayne Hellstrom, Omer Raheem

Key Words: Penile implant, malleable, subcoronal

This video shows a clear demonstration of a malleable penile implant through the subcoronal approach. MPPs are placed for patients who have poor manual dexterity, prefer a simpler penile implant option, or have a history of a previously infected device. This is a rare procedure that can be difficult to perform due to the challenge of placing the distal portion. The malleable implants are placed in the corpora after dilation and measurement with special devices.
