The implantation of the AMS 700 penile prosthesis is a surgical procedure used to treat impotence or severe erectile dysfunction. This prosthesis, manufactured by American Medical Systems (AMS), is designed to restore erectile function and improve the quality of sexual life for men who have not responded to other less invasive treatment options.
After implantation, the patient can activate the pump located in the scrotum to transfer fluid from the reservoir to the cylinders within the penis. This creates an artificial erection, which can be maintained until the patient releases the pressure on the pump. To return to a flaccid state, the fluid is removed from the cylinders and returned to the reservoir through a release valve.
To determine if the implantation of the AMS 700 penile prosthesis is the most suitable treatment, it is advised to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialist consultation.
