The permanent solution to your Erectile Dysfunction - Penile Prosthesis

Updated: Oct 30, 2019

For men who have erectile dysfunction resistant to oral medications and injection therapy, Penile Prosthesis allows a permanent solution to this debilitating and often psychologically distressing condition. In addition, some men who want to maintain spontaneity can go straight to a prosthesis after lozenge failure.

Studies indicate 93.8% of men were moderately or completely satisfied with their penile prosthesis choice. EDSA implants both major types of penile prosthesis, AMS & Coloplast. The choice of implant is primarily dependant on each patient’s anatomy.

What is the device? And how does it work?

The Coloplast Titan® and Titan® TOUCH (one touch release) inflatable penile prostheses used by Dr Elmes are self-contained, fluid-filled system made from Bioflex and silicone. Bioflex is a supple, yet durable, biopolymer material. It was designed to emulate the look and performance of a natural erection. The implant provides voluntary control over the erect and flaccid states of the penis with a one-touch release. The Titan OTR is designed for ease of patient training, easier product deflation and a quicker return to a flaccid state.

Titan OTR is offered in both standard and narrow-base cylinder styles, peno-scrotal or infrapubic approach, and lengths ranging from 10-28cm depending on style.

The Titan OTR penile implant consist of:

· A reservoir (placed in the abdomen)

· Two penile cylinders

· A pump

Each part is connected by silicone tubing. The Titan OTR is MRI Conditional and latex free.

High patient satisfaction

Both Titan implants have significant enhancements compared to previous models, and have high patient ratings for their rigidity, girth and ease of concealment. Other features that make the Titan implants easy to use include:

- Bioflex material for unmatched cylinder strength

- Patented Lock-out™ safety valve designed to prevent auto-inflation 

- Hydrophilic coating increased absorption of aqueous solution to aid in surgical placement 

- One Touch Release (OTR) for easy deflation of the device 

- Zero degree angle proximal base input tubing for ease of surgical placement 

- Soft-moulded tip designed for suitable anatomic positioning
