The Erection Connection #25: Revising a Mis-shapen Penile Implant

In the 25th episode of the Erection Connection, Dr. Christine demonstrates the rescue and revision of a penile implant on a patient who didn’t follow cycle his implant on a daily basis during the recovery period following surgery.

When a patient doesn’t regularly inflate and deflate an implant during recovery, a capsule can form which can restrict one of the inflatable cylinders on an implant. In this case, the patient’s erection became twisted. Dr. Christine surgically repaired the implant and the tissue surrounding it and set the patient on the road to recovery and restored intimacy.
