Step 7: Closure of defect in tunica albuginea with the penile dermal flap
The Krishnamurti penile dermal flap operation, described by Dr. Sudhakar Krishnamurti (www.sudhakarkrishnamurti.com) employs a local penile FLAP rather than a free graft to close the defect in the tunica albuginea consequent upon plaque incision in Peyronie's disease. FLAPS, as opposed to grafts, do not contract. This technique thus has many advantages over existing techniques (very low contracture and impotence rates), and gives very good results. It can be employed in both uncircumcised and circumcised patients.
