The line of penile prostheses from Boston Scientific provides custom sizing and maximum performance.
Boston Scientific, partnered with American Medical Systems (AMS), offers three types of penile prosthesis:
- AMS 700™ Inflatable Penile Prosthesis
- AMS Ambicor™ Inflatable Penile Prosthesis
- Spectra™ Concealable Penile Prosthesis
AMS 700™ Inflatable Penile Prosthesis
The AMS 700™ is a popular prosthesis line. Its combination of features is popular among surgeons and patients. The prosthesis is available with or without pre-connected cylinders and pump.
The fit is low profile and optimized to be a sleek and flexible solution. The cylinder and rear tip extender (RTE) design offers reduced profile designed to make placement easy. The broad range of RTE lengths provides a custom fit for patients, available from 0.5 to 7.5 cm, in 0.5 cm increments.
With the MS (Momentary Squeeze) Pump™, there is a one-touch button to allow for easy deflation, and a lock-out valve that is designed to prevent auto inflation.
The InhibiZone™ antibiotic surface helps to effectively inhibit bacteria that is often associated with penile prosthesis infections.
AMS Ambicor™ Inflatable Penile Prosthesis
The AMS Ambicor™ is a pre-connected and pre-filled device. It is a two-piece prosthesis that eliminates the need for a separate reservoir for ease of placement.
Due to its high-pressure cylinder, it’s an option for erectile dysfunction patients who suffer from Peyronie’s disease. Length can be added for a secure and customized fit with the Snap-Fit™ Rear Tip Extenders (RTEs).
- Diameter options: 12.5 mm, 14.0 mm and 15.5 mm
- Length options: 14 cm, 16 cm, 18 cm, 20 cm and 22 cm
Spectra™ Concealable Penile Prosthesis
Spectra™ offers ease of placement, simplified sizing, rigidity, and superior concealment. Its options make it a top choice for surgeons and patients as well.
The spring and cable design is unique. It allows full ability for the patient to position the prosthesis with minimal spring back. For a rigid connection and secure fit, the Snap-Fit™ Rear Tip Extenders (RTEs) add length.
- Diameter options: 9.5 mm, 12.0 mm and 14.0 mm
- Length options: 12 cm, 16 cm and 20 cm
