This video covers the surgical technique of a plaque incision and grafting for Peyronie´s Disease. The authors describe in detail the diagnostic aspects and preoperative management of the patients with severe deformity of the penis. The principal aspects of implantation are demonstrated: careful preparation of the dorsal neurovascular bundle especially in the area of the plaque as an essential step of the surgery, a modified T- shape incision of the tunica albuginea across the midline laterally to the point of normal albuginea, a choice of the graft 10% greater than the size of the defect of the tunica albuginea. Bovine pericardial graft (Tutoplast® [Coloplast, Minneapolis] was used as graft material. The graft is then sutured to the tunica with 00000 PDS in a non-locking running fashion; lateral aspects of the defect are secured first, followed by transverse aspects. For the postoperative period the author recommends: 1. Low dose PDE5i, 2. Application of cocoa butter to penis, 3. Daily use of penile stretching device (2 hours).
