Penile prosthesis offers durability, natural feel

Boston Scientific recently launched the Tactra Malleable Penile Prosthesis in the U.S. for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Approved by the FDA earlier this year, the prosthesis utilizes natural-feeling dual-layer silicone and includes a Nitinol core to optimize comfort, rigidity, and durability for effective penetration and concealment, the company says. The implant is manually lifted up for intercourse and manually pushed down when not in use. New design features of the Tactra Penile Prosthesis allow physicians to provide patients unable to take oral medications or who are ineligible/uninterested in an inflatable penile prosthesis with a device to help restore their sexual function with excellent rigidity and dependable concealment in a device that is easy to use and natural to the touch, according to Boston Scientific.
