Abstract

Tutoplast human cadaveric pericardium has been utilized safely and successfully in numerous series of tunica albuginea grafting for Peyronie's curvature without reported rejection, cyst formation, or foreign body reaction. We describe a previously unreported complication of inclusion cyst formation and graft contraction in a 40-year-old white male following Tutoplast human cadaveric pericardial graft surgical correction of Peyronie's curvature. The complication was successfully treated with surgical graft excision and replacement with autologous temporalis fascia.
