CARRENO RODRIGUEZ, José; MARTINEZ ABREU, Janet  and  TOLEDO VIERA, Alberto. Clinical evolution in patients with penile prosthesis implant. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2009, vol.62, n.6, pp.466-472. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objectives: 1). To evaluate the satisfaction and clinical outcome in patients with penile prosthesis implant as a treatment to Severe Biogenic Erectile Dysfunction. 2). To identify the most frequent complications associated with the surgical intervention. 3). To compare the behaviour of sexual satisfaction in partners and patients with penile prosthesis implant before and after the application of the treatment. Methods: A descriptive, (longitudinal) study with quantitative and qualitative methodology was done, where 25 men with penile prosthesis implants, performed at Faustino Perez Hospital, were evaluated. Results: The complications presented in the procedures were perforation of the tunica albuginea, postoperatory pain, thin penis and the expulsion of one or two cylinders, this latter case in a patient who presented periprosthetic sepsis. Conclusions: The penile prosthetic implant constitutes an option of effective treatment which achieves an 88 % of sexual satisfaction in patients. Both partners and patients treated with penile prosthetic implantation referred increase in erotism, satisfactory sexual activity, improvement of self-esteem, quality of communication with their partner, better labour results, interpersonal and social relationships and strengthening of couple's bonds.
