A common characteristic of Peyronie's Disease (PD) is plaque calcification, which is associated with decreased response to treatments and higher rates of surgical intervention. Despite its prevalence in the PD population, the literature on plaque calcification is limited. While the diagnosis of PD is mostly clinical, imaging modalities such as ultrasound can be used to identify plaque calcification. The proper identification of plaque calcification is crucial for guiding management and setting therapeutic expectations for patients with PD.

Single-Stage Reconstruction of Fossa Navicularis Strictures Using A “Sliding-T” Dorsal Inlay Urethroplasty With Buccal Mucosal Graft
To describe a single-stage urethroplasty for fossa navicularis strictures using a “sliding-T” dorsal inlay technique with buccal mucosa. Strictures of the fossa navicularis are challenging. Endoscopic treatments typically offer only temporary relief and necessitate lifelong instrumentation. Reconstruction should provide an unobstructed urethra, slit-like meatus, preserve sexual function and create a cosmetically appealing glans. The ideal urethroplasty technique has not yet been elucidated despite various described single-stage and multi-staged approaches.
