What is the AMS 700™?


    • Identification: The prominent pump bulb grips are intended to facilitate identification and inflation squeeze efficiency.
    • Inflation: Engineered for reliable and efficient inflation, regardless of pumping style.
    • Deflation: High-profile, one-press release button provides tactile feedback designed to help users confirm that deflation has started.

InhibiZone™ Antibiotic Treatment

    • Only antibiotic-impregnated inflatable penile prosthesis on the market
    • Creates a zone of inhibition effective against the bacteria commonly associated with inflatable penile prosthesis infection
    • The AMS 700 IPP with InhibiZone is the only penile implant on the market clinically proven to reduce the rate of revision due to infection

Furlow Disposable Insertion Tool

    • Sterile as packaged designed to reduce the risk of risk of device-related infection due to contamination as a result of improper reprocessing or incomplete sterilization
    • Sophisticated polymer handle and crossbar designed to enhance control and deliver next-generation ergonomics
    • Smooth shaft with new laser etched markings to reduce/eliminate chance of tissue catching during insertion

Conceal™ Low Profile Reservoir

    • Parylene coated to enhance reservoir durability
    • Optimizes fit to offer a sleek, flexible solution

Cylinder and Rear Tip Extender (RTE) Design

    • Reduced proximal profile designed to ease placement into proximal corpora even in difficult to dilate cases
    • Snap-Fit™ RTEs optimize fit and a secure, rigid connection
    • Broad range of RTE lengths provides custom fit for patients (sizing to the nearest 0.5 cm can be achieved, ranging from 0.5-7.5 cm)

MS (Momentary Squeeze) Pump™

    • One-touch button designed to facilitate deflation
    • Lock-out valve designed to resist auto inflation

What is the Tactra™ Malleable Penile Prosthesis?

Designed with proprietary dual-layer silicone, the Tactra™ Penile Prosthesis is a natural feeling malleable constructed around a Nitinol core to optimize rigidity, durability and concealment.

Tactra™ Cylinders

    • Proprietary dual-layer silicone construction for an authentic, natural feel
    • A dynamic Nitinol core provides optimal rigidity, durability and concealment
    • A soft, rounded silicone distal tip is designed to provide maximum patient and partner comfort and satisfaction
    • An articulating flex zone provides optimal concealability when the device is not in use

Axial Rigidity

A powerful Nitinol core gives the Tactra Penile Prosthesis the axial rigidity and column strength for a pair of cylinders to withstand 5.5 times the 1.1 pounds of pressure required for vaginal intromission.


Tactra™ cylinders are cycled from 0 to 90° bend for 100,000 operating cycles without mechanical failure; this is equivalent to twice the expected device life of 10 years.


    • Simplified cylinder sizing addresses the widest spectrum of patient anatomy
    • Cut-to-length sizing, single-box configuration contains cylinders and Rear Tip Extenders (RTEs) together
    • Consolidated device packaging configuration minimizes shelf space and allows greater accessibility for cases

Ease of Implantation

    • Laser-etched markings on cylinders aid in appropriate cylinder measuring, trimmable to corporal length intraoperatively
    • Insertion-fit RTEs provide a secure connection and stable foundation
    • Tactra may be implanted through multiple surgical approaches
