PURPOSE We determined the long-term mechanical reliability of the AMS 700CX/CXM inflatable penile prosthesis in men with organic erectile dysfunction. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 455 consecutive patients underwent implantation of an AMS 700CX/CXM inflatable penile prosthesis between April 1986 and July 2004. Using telephone interviews and mailed(More)
Penile prosthesis implantation, the oldest of the modern treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED), still plays an important role despite the advent of less invasive alternatives. For some men with ED, penile prosthesis implantation is the only effective or acceptable treatment. Penile prosthesis implantation remains a viable option in the contemporary(More)
CONTEXT Bladder diverticula often come to clinical attention when complications or malignancy occur, although limited information is available regarding histopathologic features and clinical outcomes. OBJECTIVE To identify the morphologic findings, neoplastic subtypes, and clinical outcomes by reviewing all bladder diverticula that underwent pathologic(More)
A prospective study was done to evaluate length expansion characteristics of the AMS Ultrex penile prosthesis cylinder intraoperatively and in the early postoperative period. A total of 50 patients 30 to 74 years old (mean age 55.2 years) underwent implantation of this device. Intraoperative changes in the pubis to mid glans distance between deflation and(More)
INTRODUCTION The field of erectile dysfunction (ED) is evolving and there is a need for state-of-the-art information in the area of treatment. Aim. To develop an evidence-based, state-of-the-art consensus report on the treatment of erectile dysfunction by implants, mechanical devices, and vascular surgery. METHODS To provide state-of-the-art knowledge(More)
To assess the efficacy of vacuum constriction devices (VCD) following radical prostatectomy (RP) and determine whether early use of VCD facilitates early sexual activity and potentially earlier return of erectile function. This prospective study consisted of 109 patients who underwent nerve-sparing (NS) or non-nerve-sparing (NNS) RP between August 1999 and(More)
From January 1956 to March 1987, 100 patients underwent a conservative (parenchyma-sparing) operation as curative treatment for renal cell carcinoma at our clinic. This series includes 56 patients with bilateral (28 synchronous and 28 asynchronous) and 44 with unilateral renal cell carcinoma; in the latter category the contralateral kidney was either absent(More)
The development of effective systemic therapy for the treatment of erectile dysfunction has resulted in a significant increase in the number of men presenting for treatment. Not all men with erectile dysfunction will respond to systemic therapy; those who fail may be candidates for penile prosthesis implantation if second and third lines of treatment also(More)
OBJECTIVES Fracture of the penis is an uncommon injury that results from trauma to the erect penis, usually during sexual intercourse. In some cases, the urethra is injured as well. To determine the outcome of immediate surgical management, we reviewed the cases of 8 patients with fracture of the penis who presented to the Cleveland Clinic from 1992 to(More)
