Authors: Julio Slongo, Aram Loeb, Justin Parker, Rafael Carrion

Key Words: Infected, Prosthesis, Salvage, Inflatable, Semi Rigid

The video presents a case of a 40 years old gentleman who developed infection of an inflatable penile prosthesis after one month of insertion. The technique used by our service for salvage of an infected inflatable penile prosthesis and insertion of a semi rigid prosthesis is demonstrated in this video. All the surgical steps are well documented and described, demonstrating the procedure in the smallest details. A single standard penoscrotal approach is used, with distal corporotomies. Special attention is given to the surgical preparation and the salvage washout steps, which are described in detail, enhancing the viewers understanding of the procedure.
