Abstract

Purpose of Review: Inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) is a treatment for erectile dysfunction. IPPs have undergone improvements; however, post-surgical infections still occur. Furthermore, the type of pathogens infecting the implants has changed recently from Gram-positive to Gram-negative bacteria and fungi due to advances in antibiotic dips targeting the skin flora. To protect against infection, the AMS 700 is pre-coated with InhibiZone (mixture of Rifampin/Minocycline) and the Coloplast Titan, with several antibiotic dip options of differing efficacies. This review discusses strategies to decrease the infection rates in implant surgery, focusing on antibiotic dips. Recent Findings: Current research endorses the use of rifampin/gentamicin as the most studied combination; however, some studies have utilized different dips for additional coverage including the InhibiZone on the AMS 700. Summary: With the increasing prevalence of diabetes and Gram-negative organisms, there is a need to develop strategies for increased coverage against infections. Controlled studies with different antibiotic combinations are needed to identify the ideal cocktail to decrease infection.
