Abstract

Patients with impotence who have undergone placement of an inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) and then subsequently are diagnosed with carcinoma of the prostate (CaP) present a surgical dilemma. We performed radical retropubic prostatectomy on 3 patients with clinically localized CaP and an indwelling IPP. At laparotomy all 3 patients had the IPP reservoir relocated to facilitate dissection. In each case the reservoir was relocated to the left hypogastrium within the extraperitoneal space without disrupting the vacuum tubing system. There were no complications related to IPP, no IPP was injured, and each IPP was reactivated successfully 6 weeks after surgery.
