WHAT TYPE OF MALFORMATION IS CONGENITAL PENILE CURVATURE?
It is a congenital malformation that causes the penis to curve during an erection. This is a much more widespread problem than you would think: a recent study documents that no less than 7% of Italian males are affected by this disease.
There are two types of curvatures:
One present since birth (congenital malformation).
One type found in adults, also known as “Induratio Penis Plastica” or “Peyronie's Disease.”
In both the congenital form and the acquired form, there can be difficulty in sexual intercourse due to the presence of the curvature.
Furthermore, in the congenital type, there are no difficulties with an erection and the dimensions of the penis are usually normal. In the acquired I.P.P. type, the retraction caused by the scar tissue can cause a significant loss of penile length and can even be associated with a serious deficiency in stiffness (erectile disfunction).
The curvature, if serious (preventing sexual intercourse), can be surgically fixed.
There are different surgical techniques that can be used for congenital curvature.
The surgical treatment for congenital curvature is of a preservative nature. There are many surgical techniques for straightening the penis.
