Reconstructive surgery using urological prostheses.


Urological prostheses have been available and widely used for the past two decades. The use of penile prostheses, artificial urinary sphincters, and testicular implants for genitourinary reconstruction for erectile dysfunction, incontinence, and orchiectomy have been successful, widely used and of low morbidity. More recently designed devices, innovations in implantation techniques, and improved intraoperative and postoperative care have resulted in the successful worldwide use of these prosthetic devices.
