Abstract

To correct congenital isolated penile torsion, we delineated a parabolic curve as a counterdirection to the torsion after artificial erection was induced. Two areas along the curve were chosen and plicated with two interrupted U-shaped sutures. Satisfactory functional and cosmetic results were achieved in 3 patients.
