Erection après échec d’implants pénines

Erection after failure of penile implants

Resume

Nous avons pu obtenir après explantation de prothèses péniennes chez un patient de 50 ans une érection satisfaisante grâce à l’utilisation combinée d’une injection intracaverneuse d’alprostadil et du vacuum. Ce cas rejoint d’autres exemples de la littérature où des érections ont pu être obtenues avec l’une ou l’autre méthode dans cette situation pourtant péjorative.

Abstract

Satisfactory erection was obtained in a 50-year-old patient after explantation of a penile implant by the combined use of intracavernous injection of alprostadil and vacuum. Other cases have been reported in the literature, in which erections have been obtained with one of these two methods in this particularly difficult setting.
