ABSTRACT

Introduction.  Migration of the penile prosthesis reservoir into the bladder is rare.

Methods.  A 67-year-old male was found with painful gross hematuria after two revision surgeries of the penile prosthesis.

Results.  The inflatable penile prosthesis reservoir migrated into the bladder. A new reservoir was repositioned on the contralateral side to the erosion site with salvage surgery.

Conclusions.  Erosion of penile prosthesis reservoir into the bladder due to shortened tubing by multiple revision surgeries is rare. In selected cases, reposition of a new reservoir on the contralateral side to the erosion site can be used as salvage surgery. Park JK, Jang SW, Lee SW, and Cui Y.
