MTP 82: Mechanical Failure of Penile Implants

Dr. Paul PeritoMeet the Penis, penile implant

This episode of MTP answers a long-standing and frequently asked question: What happens when a penile implant fails? As Dr. Paul Perito explains, penile implants have a 1-2% annual failure rate, placing them in the higher-performing echelon of stable and secure medical devices.

As long as a patient undergoes the procedure at a dedicated clinic, they should be able to have a reliable and functional implant, which, in the event of a mechanical failure can be replaced or revised quickly and easily.
