Ontology: Penile Prosthesis (C0030850)

Definition (UMD) Prostheses designed for implantation in the penis to provide penile tumescence and permit sexual contact. These prostheses may consist of inflatable tubes that are implanted in the penis and a liquid (e.g., saline with or without radiographic opacifiers) with appropriate abdominal implantable hydraulic components (e.g., conducts, pumps, reservoirs) to provide rigidity by applying pressure to the liquid or rigid or semirigid plastic bars that are implanted in the penis. Penile prostheses are intended for patients who suffer from erectile dysfunction.
