Objective: The aim of this study is to retrospectively examine patient-partner satisfaction and changes in quality of life due to two-piece penile prosthesis implantation (PPI). There is no data about partner Quality of Life (QoL) related to two-piece PPI in the literature. Material and Methods: SF 36 scale and modified Erectile Dysfunction Inventory of Treatment Satisfaction (EDITS), which were filled before two-piece PPI and at the sixth postoperative month follow-up by male patients (n = 45) and female partners (n = 45), were evaluated. Results: We found patient-partner satisfaction rates as 80% and 86% respectively. The changes in all mean scores of SF 36 (mean total score, mean physical health score and mean mental health score) were statistically significant (p < 0.01). Again, the differences between all mean scores of SF 36 according to the level of patient-partner satisfaction were statistically significant (p < 0.01). Conclusions: Two-piece PPI is an important option for ED treatment. It provides significant improvement in patient-partner QoL with high treatment satisfaction.
