SINOPSIS

Despite the introduction of oral phosphodiesterase inhibitors, penile prostheses continue to be an important form of treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). Penile prostheses are associated with high satisfaction rates due to their ease of use, reliability, and ability to provide excellent rigidity. Advances over the last decade include steps to reduce mechanical failures and surface coatings to prevent prosthetic infections. These advances make the penile prosthesis an excellent option for the treatment of ED, particularly for men who fail oral therapy.
