AMS 700 CX is the customised penile prosthesis from Boston Scientific for the people suffering from ED. It is the most popular amongst the both surgeons and patients because of the highest satisfaction rates.
AMS 700™ is a popular brand for 3-piece penile prosthesis that comprises of:
1) Two cylinders
2) A pump
3) A reservoir
All the three components are interconnected and help in aiding erection and perform sexual activities. The pair of cylinders is placed inside the penis and the pump is placed in the scrotum. The reservoir is surgically placed in the abdominal cavity and is filled with the fluid that helps in mimicking erection. As and when the patient presses the pump, the fluid from the reservoir rushes to the cylinders causing inflation in them. Because of the expansion of the cylinders, the penis achieves a hard and rigid erection and the patient can enjoy uninterrupted sexual intercourse. In order to deflate the cylinders, the patient has to press the deflate button on the pump in the scrotum. The fluid from the cylinders would move back to the reservoir and the penis would return back to the flaccid state.
In case of AMS 700 CX, on pressing the pump placed inside the scrotum, it provides controlled expansion of cylinders. This helps in optimizing girth and offers additional benefits of penile enhancement.
The AMS 700 implants provides the following benefits:
Natural Behavior - With AMS 700, the patient experiences the closest natural experience of penis erection with the help of a prosthesis. The customer satisfaction rates of AMS 700 is high because of the excellent concealment, success rates and rigid erection.

Ease of use - The AMS 700 penile implant is a customised device specially designed to use conveniently. The prosthesis comprises two cylinders and a pump that is placed inside the scrotum. By gently pressing the pump, the patient is able to achieve a rock hard erection and can enjoy sexual activities.
Global Warranty - Irrespective of which country you reside and got implanted in, AMS 700™ penile implant provides you worldwide warranty. In other words, after getting your implants done you can fly back to your country and claim the warranty (if required).
Less Infection rates - Penile implants can cause infection, so prevent that AMS 700™ comes with an optional InhibiZone™ Antibiotic Surface Treatment.
Costs - The AMS 700 CX is one of the most advanced and successful 3-piece penile implants available in the world and is considered to be a gold standard for permanent treatment of erectile dysfunction. The cost of the AMS 700™ penile implant surgery depends on the experience of the penile surgeon as well as the hospital. The cost ranges from 15000 USD to 16000 USD.
The surgery is performed by an experienced urologist under local anesthesia. A very small incision is done in the scrotum orust above the pubic bone, through which all the components of the implant are inserted. Usually the surgery lasts for around 1 hour to 90 minutes. The patient is required to stay at the hospital for 2 days for checkups and post operative care. For international patients, it is suggested to stay in a nearby hotel for 2 more days for follow-up. There can be some pain and soreness at the surgical site, but that will be healed soon. If no symptoms of infection persist, the person is given fit to fly by the doctor and can go back to his native country. For domestic patients, routine check-ups would be done in order to keep a check on the implant function & condition. The patient can engage in normal sexual activity in around 4 to 6 week’s time.
The surgeon has two choice while implanting the AMS 700™ CX implant :-
Penoscrotal approach - A small incision is made in the scrotum, and the pre connected components of the implants are inserted and put in place.Implant placed with preconnected cylinders and pump. The chances of damage to the dorsal nerves is quite less with this approach, and hence ensuring no sensory loss.
Infrapubic approach - A small infrapubic incision is made just above the pubic bone. This approach allows the surgeon to implant the reservoir quickly and under direct supervision through the same incision. Thus an extra incision in the scrotum can be avoided by the Infrapubic approach and hence it is more minimally invasive. With this approach the cylinders and pump are not pre connected and connected later on.
While both of the above techniques are safe and successful, it really depends on the approach the surgeon is more comfortable with. As a matter of fact most of the surgeons prefer the Penoscrotal approach for perfect placement of the implant.
