A 45 year gentleman came with vascular impotence. He was a diabetic for 20 years on Insulin.He had peripheral vasculopathy too. He had very poor flow (Peak Systolic Velocity) on Doppler. After having failed on PDE-5 ; we gave him option of Vacuum Erection Device and self administered penile injection(papaverine).He opted for penile implant.Because of the financial reasons he chose single piece implant. We did AMS spectra implant on him.He was kept in the hospital for 48 hours and the surgery was done under spinal anesthesia.The penoscrotal incision was given and the surgery was executed by placing the cylinders in each corpora. The AMS spectra is better in terms of its superior concealment.( if one compares it with other malleable implants)
TECHNICAL iNFORMATION ABOUT AMS SPECTRA: The Spectra prosthesis consists of a pair of cylinders, each with a center malleable section of articulating polymer and metal segments. A cable extends through the center of these segments. The proximal and distal ends of the cable are each connected to a spring that is encased in a metal housing. The entire outside surface of the cylinders is made of silicone. The articulating segments, held together by the cable and spring assemblies, provide sufficient friction and rigidity for the patient to position the device for concealment or for intercourse. The Spectra Prosthesis cylinders are available in 9.5 mm, 12 mm and 14 mm diameters. Each Spectra cylinder is available in 12, 16, and 20 cm lengths. The total length can be adjusted by adding rear tip extenders (RTEs) to the proximal end of each cylinder. A range of RTE lengths is available and can extend the cylinder length from 0.5 cm to 7.5 cm for a total prosthesis length of up to 27.5 cm.
