Objectives: To review the causes and management of penile fracture and to compare between surgical and conservative management as well as immediate and delayed interventions in terms of overall and specific complications.

 

Methods: A search of all reported literature was conducted for all articles reporting on the management and outcomes of penile fractures. Full texts of relevant articles were obtained and screened according to the inclusion criteria.

Outcomes measures were: numbers of patients receiving surgical or conservative management, aetiology of fracture, length of admission, complications as well as the specifics of diagnostic approaches and operative management. Data was collated and where possible meta-analysed using Revman software.

 

Results: A total 58 relevant studies involving 3213 patients demonstrated that intercourse accounts for only 48% of cases with masturbation and forced flexion accounting for 39%. Meta-analysis shows that that surgical intervention was associated with significantly fewer complications versus conservative management (P <0.000001). Surgical intervention results in significantly less erectile dysfunction, curvature and painful erection than conservative management. There was no significant difference in the number of patients developing plaques/nodules (P = 0.94). Meta-analysis shows that overall early surgery is preferable to delayed surgery but that rates of ED are not significantly different.

 

Discussion: Early surgical intervention is associated with significantly fewer complications than conservative management or delayed surgery. Rapid diagnosis by history and clinical examination and swift surgical intervention is key for reconstruction with minimal long-term complications.
