How Do Penile Prosthesis Work?

Erectile dysfunction is a common issue that affects many men worldwide. It can be caused by various factors such as age, health conditions, and lifestyle choices.

Unfortunately, many men are reluctant to discuss erectile dysfunction with their doctors. This often leads to untreated erectile dysfunction which can affect a man’s quality of life and his intimate relationships.

However, there are effective treatments available such as penile prosthesis, that can help men regain their sexual function and improve their overall well-being. A penile prosthesis is especially helpful to men who are unsuitable for other erectile dysfunction treatments, or who have tried other treatments which have been unsuccessful.

What Is a Penile Prosthesis?

A penile prosthesis is a medical device that is implanted surgically into the penis to create an erection. The prosthesis is composed of two cylinders that are inserted into the penis, a pump that is implanted in the scrotum, and a reservoir that is implanted in the abdomen. The cylinders are filled with saline solution, and when the pump is activated, the saline solution is transferred from the reservoir to the cylinders, creating an erection. The pump can be deactivated by pressing a release valve located on the pump, which then allows the saline solution to return to the reservoir.

Penile prothesis also come in malleable form, as opposed to the pump-operated form. This instead, uses a semi rigid rod to manipulate the penis. It also offers a simple solution for patients with finger or hand dexterity issues, hand muscle fatigue, limited reach and range of mobility.

The penile prosthesis is a long-term solution for erectile dysfunction and has a high success rate. It is considered a safe and effective treatment for men who have not responded to other forms of treatment, such as medication or therapy. The procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia and takes about one to two hours to complete.
