A number of procedures have been developed to correct penile deformity secondary to Peyronie’s disease. In many cases, tunica‐shortening procedures have had reasonable success. The most popular of these are tunical plication and Nesbit’s wedge resection. However, these procedures shorten the penis and do not correct the hourglass deformity. Tunica‐lengthening by using autologous or synthetic materials has been reported with varying success. However, notable shortcomings including graft contracture, recurrence, and impotence have been reported. This review describes our experience with tunica incision and venous grafting.
