Division of Penile Adhesions

This is a surgical procedure to eliminate penile synechiae, that is, abnormal adhesions formed within the penis.

Adhesions can form between organs or parts of the same organ subsequent to trauma or inflammation. In the case of the penis, the possible causes include balanoblenorrhea and balanoposthitis. Balanoblenorrhea is the inflammation of the glans. Balanoposthitis is inflammation of the glans mucosa and the internal lamina of the foreskin. It may be traumatic, chemical or infective in origin.
