Penile prosthesis surgery has become the standard treatment for patients with erectile dysfunction refractory to medical management. Refinements in the both the surgical technique and device manufacturing have made this a safe and reliable treatment with excellent patient satisfaction. In this review, we will overview the basic medical and pre-operative considerations for patients undergoing penile prosthesis implantation. We intend to provide a simple and practical checklist for the implanter to reference when considering implantation of a penile prosthesis.
