In this video by Hakky et al., the authors nicely depict a surgical technique of reduction corporoplasty using bilateral lateral elliptical incisions in the management of aneurysmal dilation of the corpora cavernosa. This surgical approach is both novel and nicely depicted by the authors. In the continual goal of penile reconstructive surgery to preserve/optimize penile length and functionality, the present surgical approach adds to our present surgical. The merits of this versus other techniques are ultimately at the discretion of the surgeon appreciating his personal surgical outcomes with a given technique weighed along with the expectations and treatment goals of the individual patient.
