Content: Professor David Ralph has built up the largest, most prestigious Andrology department globally. His practice is entirely confined to Andrology, with the main interests being penile reconstruction, Peyronie’s Disease, Erectile dysfunction with prosthetic Urology and male infertility. He is considered one of the legends in penile surgery. Evie Kirana and Francesca Tripodi interview him on congenital penile curvature (CPC), a rare condition that untreated may affect outcomes as an adult such as sexual health, urinary symptoms, and quality of life. Patients usually present after puberty as the curvature becomes more apparent with erections, and severe curvature can make intercourse difficult or impossible. Professor Ralph shares his clinical experience, clarifying the CPC’s characteristics, the men’s typical reactions to their condition, and the sexual dysfunctions associated with this. Current surgical trends, advantages and disadvantages of available methods and possible complications are presented. Tips on sexual history taking and diagnosis and possible mistakes in the sexological assessment are given. Issues that a patient needs to consider when selecting the right surgeon and the key points that sexologists need to know about congenital curvature are discussed at the end of the talk, improving the learner’s awareness of this condition.
