Abstract

Objectives To determine the incidence of calcified Peyronie's disease plaque that cannot be cut with a blade in a 100-case series and to describe the use of a soft tissue-protecting bone saw for plaque incision. Methods Chart reviews were done of all surgically treated Peyronie's disease patients at our center between October 1996 and December 2012. 100 cases were included. We evaluated our novel technique of tissue-protecting bone saw surgical use. Results 100 consecutive patients underwent surgery for Peyronie's disease, and 6 required transverse bone saw plaque incision due to the severity of calcification that could not be cut with a blade. Four of those 6 underwent grafting procedures with porcine submucosal intestinal substance (SIS) and 2 underwent placement of inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) after plaque incision. There were no surgical complications. Both IPP patients had functioning prosthesis 4 and 7.3 years after surgery. One SIS-graft patient required re-operation for more proximal curvature 11 months later and ultimately required multiple plaque incisions and an IPP. Conclusion Densely calcified plaques occurred in 6% of a surgical series of Peyronie's disease patients. The vibrating bone saw is a novel technique to incise calcified plaques before grafting or IPP placement.
