Loss of length depends upon the direction of curvature and the degree of curvature particularly in performing a plication operation such as the Nesbit procedure. In this operation, the loss of length has been reported to range from 0-5 cm. In a published report from January 2006 in the Journal of Urology, Greenfield et al reported their experience in men with Peyronie’s and congenital curvature where there was very little loss of length if the curvature was lateral or upward whereas if it was downward and exceeded 60 degrees, length loss could be 2.5 to 5 cm. The risk of not undergoing the plication operation for the man who has relatively mild to moderate curvature, is that there is an increased risk of erectile dysfunction when performing a grafting procedure. The grafting procedure should be reserved primarily for those men with severe curvature and excellent rigidity.

Previous Does the Lue procedure in conjunction with plaque incision give good results?
Next I had surgery for Peyronies disease in April of 2012. I have an allergy to iodine but the incompetent post-op nurse put iodine all over my penis to insert a catheter. This caused massive quarter-sized blisters all over the head of my penis that spread into the sutures. I keep having electrical shooting pains through my penis frequently. The surgical doctor said I have nerve damage from the allergic reaction. The hospital is arguing this point saying this is not possible. Any thoughts?
