HOW IT WORKS
The AMS Ambicor Implant is a fluid-filled device that includes a pair of cylinders implanted in the penis and a single pump located in the scrotum. Squeezing and releasing the pump moves fluid to the cylinders, creating a rigid erection. Deflate by bending the cylinders at the base of the penis.
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. Typically, it takes a few days to return to your regular routine of light activity. The full healing time before using your implant is usually about 6 weeks.
As with any medical procedure, complications can occur. Side effects include, but are not limited to:2 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.
