Objective: To evaluate self-reported patient and partner satisfaction in cases of unconsummated marriage due to congenital penile curvature that was treated by the 16-dot plication procedure. Patients and methods: From March 2008 to March 2012, 24 couples presented to our institute with an unconsummated marriage due to congenital penile curvature. All patients were treated using the 16-dot plication operation. Patients were followed up for 3 months and were asked, with their partners, to complete a specific questionnaire to evaluate their satisfaction with the outcome of the operation. Results: The duration of unconsummated marriage was 2-12 weeks. The mean (SD, range) angle of penile curvature was 57.4 (20.3, 30-110)°. All patients were able to consummate their marriage within a mean (SD, range) of 5.3 (1.3, 4-8) weeks after surgery. The overall satisfaction rate with the outcome of the operation among patients was nearly 100% for 'moderately satisfied' or greater, and among their partners was nearly 96% for 'moderately satisfied' or greater, at 3 months. Conclusion: The 16-dot plication technique is an easy procedure for the emergent correction of congenital penile curvature presenting as an unconsummated marriage. Most patients and their partners were pleased with the outcome of the procedure. © 2012 Arab Association of Urology. Production and hosting by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
