AMS 700™ Penile Implant

The AMS 700™ Penile Implant is the most popular inflatable prosthesis provided by Boston Scientific. Why? It most closely mimics a natural erection, provides rigidity when inflated and a natural, flaccid appearance when deflated.

  • Currently, the ONLY penile implant on the market with cylinders that expand in GIRTH and LENGTH
  • The AMS 700 LGX expands in both girth and length.1
  • Firm, rigid erection that lasts as long as desired
  • Natural flaccid appearance when deflated


  • Controlled expansion provides maximum rigidity and optimizes girth expansion
  • Firm, rigid erection that lasts as long as desired


  • All the benefits of the AMS 700 implant series, including girth expansion for patients who may require narrower cylinders (e.g., those with scarred corporal bodies)
  • Controlled expansion provides maximum rigidity and optimal girth expansion
  • Firm, rigid erection that lasts as long as desired
  • Natural flaccid appearance when deflated



  • Only penile implant with InhibiZone™ Antibiotic Surface Treatment2
  • InhibiZone treatment has been proven to reduce the risk of implant infections3
  • Historically, infection rates with penile implants are low – 3 out of 100 men (3%) will experience an infection; however, some men may be at higher risk for infections4
  • InhibiZone treatment has been proven to reduce infection rates to 1.1% or 1 out of 100 men4


  • Operate with one-touch button for deflation
  • Lock-out valve designed to reduce auto-inflation


  • Once activated, maintain an erection for as long as desired
  • Broad range of lengths provide custom fit for patients


  • Parylene coated to enhance long-term durability5
  • A permanent treatment option for ED

*Available without antibiotics for those with tetracycline allergies.


The AMS 700 Implant includes a pair of cylinders implanted in the penis, a pump placed inside the scrotum, and a reservoir of saline placed in the lower abdomen. Squeezing and releasing the pump moves fluid into the cylinders, creating an erection. Deflate the device by pressing the deflate button on the pump. The penis then returns to a soft, flaccid and natural-looking state.


The implant procedure is usually done in a hospital setting. The duration of your expected hospital stay should be discussed with your physician. A small incision is made in the scrotum or above the pubic bone and a surgeon inserts all components through this opening. The surgery is performed under anesthesia. You may experience pain and soreness at the surgical site. It generally takes a few days to return to your regular routine of light activity. Physicians typically say wait usually about 6 weeks before intercourse.


As with any medical procedure, complications can occur. Side effects include, but are not limited to:2,5 natural or spontaneous erections as well as other interventional treatment options will no longer be possible; infection, in which case the implant may have to be removed; pain (typically associated with the healing process); mechanical failure of the implant.
