The collaboration between Professors Gabriele Antonini and Paul Perito on the Minimally Invasive Infrapubic Technique is getting stronger. Over the course of the week, Dr. Perito presented his revolutionary technique to Urologists from Europe who specialize in Men’s Health at the 2nd Edition Pelvic Surgery and Urological Function Meeting where he sharing his knowledge on the surgical treatment of erectile dysfunction. Six patients in Rome underwent the penile implant procedure using Dr. Perito’s Minimally Invasive Technique. This novel technique adopted long ago by Dr. Antonini, has advanced the treatment of men with ED beyond response to pill and injection therapies. The penile implant is used specifically but not limited to patients who have previously undergone surgery for prostate cancer, or those suffering from venous leaks related to diabetes and other predispositions to the breakdown of vascular structures which prevent them from having erections. In just 15 minutes we are able to implant the three-component device, a quality of life changing procedure enjoyed more and more by men and couples around the world.
“It was a wonderful week and we are grateful to Dr’s Gabriele Antonini and Maurizio Carrino and their staff for hosting us”
Dr. Paul Perito’s abstract, “Penile Cosmetics: An Institutional Study” was selected for a moderated poster presentation during the 24th Congress of the World Association for Sexual Health and the XII Congreso Nacional de Educación Sexual y Sexología in Mexico City, October 12–15, 2019.
Dr. Perito, Dr. Brennan and Dr. Suarez-Sarmiento, Jr. spent the weekend of May 3rd at the American Urological Association conference, in Chicago, IL, representing Perito Urology and presenting their research to the global urology community. Dr. Perito participated in a roundtable discussion, on Friday afternoon, where they discussed common challenges physicians face during surgery and advancements in reservoir placement and techniques. The following day he taught an Instructional course along with Dr. Steve Wilson, and Dr. Tobias Steen, where they discussed Paradigm Changes in a 40-Year-old Operation: the Inflatable Penile Implant. Dr. Suarez-Sarmiento, Jr. presented his work on Glans Hypermobility, as well as giving a podium presentation on his research on the efficacy of anticoagulant use during penile implantation. Perito Urology also collaborated with several great urologists to produce 6 total abstracts at this year’s AUA.
Below you can find links and citations to all abstracts presented this weekend, as well as a brief description of the instructional course that Dr. Perito participated in. Perito Urology is also happy to announce a new publication in the International Journal of Impotence Research, published on May 1, titled “Multicenter investigation on the influence of climate in penile prosthesis infection.”

Paradigm Changes in a 40-Year-old Operation: Inflatable Penile Implant (IPP); Instructional Course: Paul Perito; Steven Wilson; Tobias Steen. May 2019
Most urologic surgery has abandoned the skin incision. Despite still requiring an incision, many new developments have occurred in surgical technique and management. Join three very experienced implanters as they discuss these new enhancements: different skin incision location for placement, much safer locations for reservoirs, new infection prevention and management ideas, new techniques for straightening Peyronie’s with implant and tricks for lengthening the penis.
Experiment with a new surgical incision of placing the IPP — subcoronal
Abandon traditional retropubic reservoir placement in favor of a much safer location that avoids the possibility of vessel or viscus injury
Prevent the development of device infection and if it occurs, suggest new methods of management that might forestall device removal
Apply new methods of cylinder placement and adjunctive measures that increase perceived penile length following IPP placement
Adopt newer adjunctive measures with IPP placement in Peyronie’s that promote immediate straightening
Roundtable Discussion on Intraop Management: JJM Moderating/Coaching
Moderator: Gerard Henry; Panelists: Paul Perito; Aaron Lentz; Justin Parker; May 2019

Dr. Perito Presented the Minimally Invasive Infrapubic Implant Technique and Proctored a LAB at a recent Advanced Surgical Skills Workshop in Tampa, FL – March 8-9, 2019
Dr. Rafael Carrion and the team from USF hosted a didactic and surgical skills workshop in Tampa, FL over the weekend of March 8-9, 2019, in which Dr. Perito was honored to be a participant. Nearly 30 physicians from around the US attended focusing on men’s health and surgical treatments for advanced stage ED. Dr. Perito participated in a dinner discussion Friday evening where they discussed common challenges faced by physicians during surgery and advancements in reservoir placement and placement techniques. The following day he presented during a didactic session and proctored the infrapubic implant station in the lab. Seven top implanters and corporate team members joined Dr. Perito in presenting to some of today’s top urologists. Presentation topics included a Men’s Health update from Dr. Perito and step-by-step penoscrotal and infrapubic penile implant techniques. These workshops provide amazing opportunities urologists throughout the country to learn from one another and share ideas that will help evolve the patient experience and common practices of penile implant surgery.
