Hey folks. This thread will be my attempt to categorize the best information we have on penile implants as the IPP section grows. We have members going through this procedure and sharing technical information that everybody should read in order to make informed decisions on which device to choose and why, along with many other questions. I feel that there is a need to index it all in one place. Wish me luck and patience. lol.

Implant Journals:
Below is an index to the forum's Implant Journal's.  It is a highly recommended resource to those considering and those recently receiving an implant.  While they seem to be extensive reading, they are well worth the time since every man is different and experiences vary.  Some have Erectile Dysfunction with or without Peyronies Disease.  Some have a deformity only and no Erectile Dysfunction.  Some had prior surgeries such as grafting or Nesbit procedure, then had an implant. Some had Titan implants and some AMS implants.  Their ages vary from 28yrs to 80yrs old at the time of implant.  They had varying periods of sexual dysfunction ranging from months to decades. Some had a scrotal approach, while some have a public approach.  Some psychologically adjusted to their implant immediately, and some had doubts during recovery. The biggest difference might be the variety of surgeons.

The biggest similarity is that every one of us wishes we had opted for the implant surgery even sooner.

This is still a work in progress. Only the best info will make it here. I really feel it helps out when the time for surgery comes. So we can confidently go through surgery and not have to worry about things like "what is the best inflation strategy post IPP recovery?" or "why should i choose a surgeon that makes the best effort possible to avoid RTE's?" .

If a journal link has not been added, please alert us.

Feel free to suggest links to be added.
