This video demonstrates our technique placing an AMS Spectra penile prosthesis (American Medical Systems) using a subcoronal incision. We describe the advantages and disadvantages utilizing this efficacious technique. It is a quick and safe method of placing a malleable prosthesis, ideal for patients who would benefit from a smaller wound and shorter surgical time.

Dr. Brant: The subcoronal technique is an excellent approach for placement of malleable or semi-rigid prostheses when there is minimal fibrosis within the corpora. In cases requiring more extensive dissection, alternative approaches may be more appropriate, although the surgeon typically will need larger corporotomies.
