Management of Sexual Dysfunction
I-Scope of Experience
Having practiced most methods of surgical correction of erectile dysfunction including malleable and inflatable penile prostheses, venoligation and arterialization, I have come to propose modifications and improvements of current techniques, as well as design new approaches to yet unresolved obstacles.
Prosthesis Implantation in a Fibrosed Penis
This has been a challenge for the experienced surgeons. Fibrosis resulting from neglected priapism, extensive Peyronie's disease or from removal of an infected prosthesis has almost always resisted dilatation of the corpora cavernosa and prosthesis insertion. We used to forcefully probe the corpora with blunt dilators trying to negotiate the fibrous tissue, commonly ending in perforation, not to mention the extended operative time and manipulation with a resultant increase in infection rate. Cavernotomes improved the ease of dilatation but still retained a similarly high complication rate, being inserted blindly since the effective tip cannot be visually monitored.
In 2006, I published the first report on
"Optical Corporotomy and Trans Corporal Resection"
comprising visually monitored excavation of the fibrosed corpora cavernosa using the cystoscope as in visual urethrotomy and as in transurethral resection of the prostate. The cystoscope monitors the blade or resection loop as they excavate the corpus cavernosum.

Ultrasound-guided excavation was my sequel to Optical Corporotomy. Published in 2007, US guided excavation allows monitoring a sheathed instrument (for example a laparoscopy trochar and sheath) or the cystoscope as they drill into the corpora cavernosa.

Management of Distal Extrusion of Penile Prosthesis: Partial Disassembly and Tip Reinforcement by Double Breasting or Grafting
erosion and perforation of penile prosthesis has been reported in
association with neurological impairment, diabetes mellitus and following
irradiation for prostatic cancer. Once perforation occurs, re-implantation
carries a higher risk of re-perforation unless adequate preventive measures
