Types of Penile Prosthesis

  1. Non-inflatable, Semi-rigid Devices
  2. Inflatable Devices

Non-inflatable, Semi-rigid devices consist of rods implanted into the erection chambers of the penis and can be bent into position as needed for sexual penetration. The penis is always semi-rigid and merely needs to be lifted or adjusted into the erect position to initiate sex.

Inflatable Prosthesis is made of cylinders placed in the erection chambers of the penis. The scrotum holds the pump to be used for patient activated inflation / deflation. The reservoir which stores the fluid is placed in the abdomen. Squeezing the pump several times transfers the fluid from the reserviour to the chambers thereby inflating the cylinders. The prosthesis can be two piece or three piece depending on the specific situation and needs.

Procedure

One small surgical cut is made either above the penis where it joins the abdomen or under the penis where it joins the scrotum. No tissue is removed, blood loss is small and blood transfusion is almost never required. If doctor is implanting a two-piece inflatable device, a pump and valve are placed inside the scrotum. For a three-piece device, doctor will also implant a fluid reservoir under the abdominal wall through an internal incision. A patient will typically spend one night in the hospital.
