Objective: We describe a new surgical technique for the treatment of penile curvature. In 2012, we developed a new surgical technique for the correction of congenital and acquired penile curvature without circumcision called “track” corporoplasty or Alei II technique Design and Method: For the penile ventral curvature repair an infrapubic transverse dorsal incision is made to correct a ventral curvature or when removing or cutting the plaque in Peyronie’s disease A single 0 non-absorbable synthetic multifilament suture is placed in order to perform a special placation on two parallel lines and therefore called “track”. Laterally to the corporoplasty described, two corporoplasties should be performed along the line that goes from the dorsal neurovascular bundle to the lateral end of the corpus cavernosus at 30° and 60° on the penile sagittal plane. The two corporoplasties should measure 50% at 30° and 25% at 60. Results: Mean age was 43 years for patients with Peyronie’s disease and 31 years for patients with congenital penile deviation. The mean follow-up period was 36 months. No major complications, no circumcision, overall satisfaction 98%. Intraoperative correction of the curvature was achieved in 100%, significant relapse occurred in 2%. Conclusions: This original technique is associated with low morbidity, low recurrence rate and excellent aesthetic results.
