Technical complications requiring frequent surgical revision of the most commonly used penile component prosthesis have led to the development of a new inflatable device that has been implanted in 202 patients. This hydraulic device provides excellent functional qualities; no connector separations, aneurysms, or ruptures have been encountered in these patients. Reoperations became necessary in 8 per cent of these patients. Cosmetic and functional results are good, and patient acceptance has been excellent.
