UNLABELLED: The fracture of the penis is an uncommon injury that is defined as a rupture of the tunica albuginea of the corpus cavernosum. We present our experience in 9 cases admitted to our department between 1989 and 1998. Most of the cases were caused by traumatism during sexual intercourse. Clinical presentation and physical examination were enough to make the diagnosis. The treatment was surgery in all cases, with evacuation of the hematoma and reconstruction of the rupture with absorbable suture...
