Your doctor is your best source for information on the risks and benefits of an AMS Penile Prosthesis. Talk to your doctor for a complete listing of risks, warnings and important safety information.
These AMS Penile Prostheses are intended for use in the treatment of male erectile dysfunction (impotence). Implanting a penile prosthesis will damage or destroy any remaining ability to have a natural erection, as well as make other treatment options impossible.
Men with diabetes, spinal cord injuries or skin infections may have an increased risk of infection. Implantation may result in penile shortening, curvature or scarring. Some AMS 700™ Inflatable Penile Prosthesis devices contain an antibiotic (InhibiZone™ Antibiotic Treatment). The device may not be suited for patients who are allergic to the antibiotics contained within the device (rifampin, minocycline or other tetracyclines).
Additional information is provided in the product Patient Manuals, available through your doctor.
