The management of erectile dysfunction refractory to medical treatment is still a challenge that is faced by clinicians worldwide. The penile prosthesis surgical intervention (PPSI) remains the mainstay effective alternative given the high incidence of couple satisfaction achieved by this surgical technique. This is a prospective study including 50 patients who benefited from the PPSI that were conducted at the Mohammed VI and Cheikh Khalifa International University Hospitals in Casablanca, Morocco between January 2019 and January 2020. The satisfaction of the patients benefiting from the penile prosthesis and of their respective partner were assessed via a questionnaire consisting of 20 questions. There were high patient and partner satisfaction rates. 74% of the patients that benefited from the penile prosthesis were completely satisfied with the posy-operative results. In addition, 88% of the partners felt a marked improvement in their sexual experience after the surgical intervention. The age group that formed the majority of the patient population was between 45 and 65 years. The cross sorting of the following two variables: the satisfaction of the patient and the respective patient age group had a significant p-value estimated at 0.019 (less than0.05). We also cross sorted the satisfaction of the patient with the improvement of their respective partner?s sexual experience after the PPSI with a p-value of 0 (less than0.05). This study showed significant satisfaction rates of the patients who benefitted from the PPSI and their respective partner. These results may suggest that the PPSI remains the most suitable therapy for patients with erectile dysfunction refractory to medical treatment.
