Abstract

We present our experience with the new Mentor inflatable penile prosthesis for the treatment of organic impotence. Technical complications requiring frequent revision of the most commonly used inflatable prosthesis have led to the development of a new device, which we have used in 116 patients. This hydraulic device provides excellent functional qualities. No connector separations, aneurysms or ruptures have been encountered. Reoperations became necessary in 10.5 per cent of the patients. Cosmetic and functional results were good, and patient acceptance has been excellent.
