OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of timing of presentation of cases with penile fracture on the outcome of surgical intervention.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between January 1986 and May 2010, 180 patients with penile fracture were treated surgically in our center. To assess the effect of timing of presentation, patients were classified into 2 groups: group I with early presentation (≤24 hours) and group II with delayed presentation (>24 hours). All patients were contacted by mail or phone and were re-evaluated. All patients were reevaluated by questionnaire and local examination. Patients with erectile dysfunction were evaluated by color Doppler ultrasonography.
RESULTS: Group I included 149 patients (82.8%) and group II included 31 (17.2%). In group I, patients presented to the emergency department from 1-24 hours (mean, 11.8) after occurrence of the penile trauma. Although patients in group II presented from 30 hours to 7 days (mean, 44.7 hours). Both groups were similar regarding etiology of injury, clinical presentation, surgical findings, and incidence of associated urethral injury. Mean follow-up period for group I was 105 months, and for group II it was 113 months. After such long-term follow up, 35 (19.4%) patients had complications; however, there was no statistically significant difference between both groups.
CONCLUSIONS: Cases of penile fracture with early or delayed presentation up to 7 days should be managed surgically. Both groups have comparable excellent outcome with no serious long-term complications.
