OBJECTIVE. The objective of our article is to review the role of imaging in the diagnosis of various complications of a penile prosthesis (PP). CONCLUSION. Complications of a PP can be categorized into three groups: first, malpositioning, which includes buckling, floppy glans, erosion, migration, and crossover; second, mechanical failure, which includes fracture, aneurysm, and leakage; and, third, infection. Radiography, sonography, CT, and MRI are useful in the detection of these complications and complement each other, with MRI being the most useful imaging modality among them.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The objective of our article is to review the role of imaging in the diagnosis of various complications of a penile prosthesis (PP). CONCLUSION. Complications of a PP can be categorized into three groups: first, malpositioning, which includes buckling, floppy glans, erosion, migration, and crossover; second, mechanical failure, which includes fracture, aneurysm, and leakage; and, third, infection. Radiography, sonography, CT, and MRI are useful in the detection of these complications and complement each other, with MRI being the most useful imaging modality among them.
