The objective of this study was to evaluate the modern utilization of penile prosthesis surgery based on data derived from national claim databases and contrast to an analysis of patients similarly treated at an academic center during a contemporaneous period. A retrospective claim analysis utilizing a national database (MarketScan, Thomson Reuters) was performed for Commercial insurer and Medicare databases between January 2000 and March 2011. A retrospective analysis of contemporaneous penile… Expand
30-day adverse event rates following penile prosthesis surgery: an American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program based evaluation
TLDR
Surgery for penile prosthesis appears to be a safe operation despite the routinely advanced age of the patients requiring it, and this data can be used in the clinical setting for a more informed patient-physician discussion and patient expectation management. Expand
Commercial Insurance Coverage for Inflatable Penile Prosthesis at a Tertiary Care Center
TLDR
While some patients seeking inflatable penile prosthesis can receive insurance coverage, a large percentage are not able to receive coverage despite having a medical necessity for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Expand
National practice patterns of treatment of erectile dysfunction with penile prosthesis implantation.
TLDR
Although specialists and high volume surgeons perform a disproportionate number of implant surgeries, low volume surgeons place most penile prostheses in the United States. Expand
An assessment of current penile prosthesis reimbursement guidelines for insurance plans nationwide
TLDR
Insurance coverage criteria for PP placement were highly variable by state and plan, and coverage is provided for PP implantation in most cases for ED of organic etiology following failure of pharmacologic therapy when contributing comorbidities are optimally managed. Expand
Genitourinary Prosthetic Use among Prostate Cancer Survivors Treated with Radical Prostatectomy
TLDR
Overall treatment with genitourinary prosthetic surgery for incontinence or erectile dysfunction was rare following radical prostatectomy, however, diabetic and older men demonstrated a greater likelihood of device placement. Expand
Trends in Penile Prosthetics: Influence of Patient Demographics, Surgeon Volume, and Hospital Volume on Type of Penile Prosthesis Inserted in New York State.
TLDR
There has been an increasing trend in inflatable PP surgery for the management of erectile dysfunction during the past 14 years, and major influences in choice of PP inserted include racial and socioeconomic factors and surgeon and hospital surgical volume. Expand

TLDR
Penile prosthesis remains as an important, viable, and effective treatment for male erectile dysfunction that does not respond to other less invasive approaches or when these approaches are contraindicated or not acceptable to the patient. Expand
Analysis of Hospital Readmissions After Prosthetic Urologic Surgery in the United States: Nationally Representative Estimates of Causes, Costs, and Predictive Factors.
TLDR
Analysis of readmissions can provide better care for urologic prosthetic surgeries through better preoperative optimization, counseling, and resource allocation, and show that comorbidity status is important for surgical candidacy. Expand

TLDR
The number of penile prostheses in France doubled between 2006 and 2013, and three regions were particularly active as far as this surgery is concerned (Île-de-France, Languedoc-Roussillon, Rhône-Alpes). Expand
Time course and predictors of use of erectile dysfunction treatment in a Veterans Affairs medical center
TLDR
It is concluded that men who will ultimately use more invasive ED treatments, such as men with more co-morbidities, tend to have a prolonged treatment course, which may be incorporated into a shared decision-making model for more efficient treatment of ED. Expand
