Penile Implant : A boon for erectile dysfunction

We recently operated a 56 -year old patient with erectile dysfunction.He was a known case of Coronary Artery Disease with hyperlipidemia and was on anti-platelet agents.He was a non-responder to PDE-5 inhibitors and Vacuum Erection Device so was taken up for Penile Implant.A three piece penile implant of Mentor Coloplast was implanted with a penoscrotal incision and the reservoir was implanted in retropubic space.
The whole surgery took 1 1/2 hours with minimal blood loss.The ecosprin medication was stopped 1 week prior to surgery.
The patient was started on prophylactic antibiotcs and as a routine scrubbing of the genital area with Betadine scrub was started 5 days prior to the surgery.
The post-operative period was uneventful and the patient was discharged 2 nd post-operative day.
