Treatment of erectile dysfunction with penile implant
Erectile dysfunction treatment with penile implant implants in Turkey is a treatment option for men with erectile dysfunction. These devices are either shrinkable or inflatable. The simplest type consists of a pair of rods that are surgically implanted into the erectile chambers of the penis. Where the penis in this case is permanently rigid and only needs to be lifted or adjusted to the erection position to start sex. It is a good choice for men with spinal cord injuries. But many men today go to the inflatable hydraulic penis support because it allows for an erection when needed and vice versa at other times, which gives a more natural feeling.
A penile implant is typically used when there is an obvious medical cause for ED. And when the problem is difficult to treat or improve naturally or with other medical treatments. Sometimes a penis implant is implanted during penile reconstruction surgery in Peyronie’s disease (pain and curvature of the penis during erection). Penile implants take about an hour and are usually performed on an outpatient basis, and a man can have sex 6 weeks after surgery.
How does a penile implant work?
The inflatable penis support (.consisting of 3 pieces) consists of two connected cylinders, a reservoir, and a pump that is surgically placed inside the penis, where the first is. The two cylinders are inserted into the penis and then connected with a tube to a separate tank containing saline solution. The reservoir is implanted under the rectus muscle in the lower abdomen and the pump under the loose skin of the scrotal sac between the testicles. As for the hydraulic inflatable penis support (consisting of two pieces), it consists of cylinders and a reservoir integrated with the pump inside the scrotum. It is characterized by the fact that the surgery is shorter and less complicated, and there are no parts of the device in the abdomen. But its disadvantage is that the reservoir is smaller, that is, in other words, it may not lead to an adequate erection in some men.
How it works
The man presses on the pump, and the penis support pump hydraulically transfers the saline solution from the reservoir to the cylinders in the penis. Which leads to amplification and causing an erection. After practice, the man presses the deflation valve at the base of the pump, which causes the fluid to return to the reservoir, emptying the penis and returning it to its natural flaccid state.
Is it noticeable?
The surgery leaves a scar where the lower shaft of the penis meets the scrotum. Or in the lower abdomen just above the penis, but it’s hard for other people to tell that the man has an inflatable penis.
What is it like to have sex with a penis implant?
The stent makes the penis hard and thick when it is inflated. But most men rate their erections as less than normal. So newer models have cylinders that increase the length, thickness and hardness of the penis. The penis implant does not alter the sensation on the skin of the penis or a man’s ability to reach orgasm or ejaculate. But this process is not reversible, as if the implant is removed, the man will not have a normal erection again. Once the penis implant is placed, men cannot achieve an erection without blowing through the pump.
How effective is the implant?
About 90%-95% of inflatable penile supports provide an erection suitable for sexual intercourse. Satisfaction rates are high with 80%-90% of men satisfied with the results and saying they would choose surgery again.
Is the implant safe?
No surgery is completely free from potential complications, but complications associated with penile implants include:
- Uncontrolled bleeding after surgery may lead to a repeat operation.
- Scar tissue formation.
- Erosion (tissue around the implant may break) requiring removal.
- mechanical failure.
