Transcript

Some men with Peyronie’s Disease have significant bend and they cannot get a good rigid erection.

Now, in these men, there is no point doing a reconstructive operation because they will then have a straight soft erection which is not useful.

For these men, the insertion of an implantable penile prosthesis is a very good way of restoring function.

This involves a day in hospital, general anaesthetic, the implantable inflatable prosthesis is inserted through a small cut in the scrotum, and six weeks later, they’re ready to have sexual intercourse.

The prosthesis straightens and makes rigid the erection and is a very good means of solving the problem.

The prosthesis is generally functional for 10 to 15 years and can, of course, be replaced should it stop working after that period.
