  • Currently, the prosthesis of choice for patients undergoing penile prosthesis surgery is a three piece inflatable device, as this provides optimal inflation and deflation when compared to a one or two piece prosthesis. However, prior pelvic surgery or radiation therapy can obliterate the retropubic space and make placement of the reservoir required for a three piece prosthesis difficult. We report a novel location for reservoir placement in a man who had undergone multiple pelvic surgeries after suffering a severe pelvic crush injury.
