Fracture of the corpus cavernosum with rupture of the penile urethra. Apropos of 2 cases



Fracture of the corpus cavernosum with rupture of the penile urethra. Apropos of 2 cases



Journal d'Urologie 96(8): 445-448



The authors describe 2 cases of fracture of a corpus cavernosum with rupture of the penile urethra. After their review of the literature, they stress how rare this accident is (about one hundred published cases, of which only 25% were associated with a rupture of the urethra). As they cannot refer to greater series, they emphasize the points they find important to achieve healing with as few sequellae as possible: very early diagnosis of the accident; very accurate assessment of the lesions; debridement of the wound and thorough cleaning of the corpus cavernosum; repair of each tunica within the shortest possible time.
