In the previous workshop we described cylinders out of place due to flawed and unrecognized surgical movements piercing tissue planes that months later are subsequently exploited by the cylinders during sexual intercourse. This workshop completes the trilogy of cylinders out of place. The fourth workshop cataloged fixes of cylinders out of place intraoperatively and the fifth workshop showed the current surgical revision operations to address the cylinders once they have migrated. This sixth workshop will address correction of the implanted penis that is distorted by hypermobile glans, incorrectly measured or crossed over cylinders.
