The best case scenario is clearly satisfactory functional straightening of the penis to less than 20 degrees, preservation of sensation, length and erectile capacity. In men who have good erections preoperatively, 95% can expect this type of result. In men who have borderline erections, upwards of 30% will have worsening of their erectile capacity after a grafting procedure. The overall worse case scenario in a man with severe curvature would be inadequate straightening and correction of girth, shortening, loss of sensation and erectile dysfunction. Thankfully, the experts in the field who have published on the incision and grafting technique have reported the worse case scenario in the very rare patient as it is important to select patients carefully for this operation.
