Abstract

Trauma to the male phallus may be treated in a systematic approach to achieve aesthetically and functionally pleasing results. Isolated burns should be treated early with excision and preputial flap or skin graft closure. Avulsion injuries are closed primarily or skin grafted. Subtotal loss can be treated with penile lengthening techniques. Total loss is treated with reimplantation or microvascular free tissue transfer phalloplasty. There are reconstructive surgical options, instead of penectomy, in patients with penile malignancies.
