1. - INTRODUCTION

Based on the evidence of human tissue response to stretching a traction device for non-invasive penile lengthening has been designed and tested.

 

TRACTION DEVICE:

- Basic ring, fastened proximally around the root of the penis, abutting on the symphysis.
- Two adjustable metal bars hinged to the ring, connecting it to the silicon-support, fastened around the corona glandis at the distal end of the penis.
- By gradually increasing the tractive force on the two metal bars a stretching force is exerted on the corporae, which equals a tractive force of a 600-1500 g weight attached to the penis.

 

2. - MATERIAL AND METHODS

2.1. Number of patients:

10 patients ranging from 23-47 years

2.2. Patient selection:

2.2.1. Inclusion: normal erectile capacity and no penile surgery
2.2.2. Exclusion: chronically diseases

2.3. Traction force:

0- 2 weeks - 900-1000 g
2-26 weeks - 1000-1200 g

2.4. Treatment period:

12 hours daily 7 days a week 8 to 26 weeks

2.5. Follow up:

Every 2 weeks

4. - CONCLUSIONS

- Preliminary study
- All patients achieved penile lengthening after traction
- Lengthening per week was 1,2 mm
- No complications

- Medical indications:

a) non-invasive: hypoplasic penis, Peyronie’
b) postoperative: hypospadias / epispadias, penile lengthening procedures
