Abstract

Urologic prosthetics have become increasingly complex and include an assortment of urinary catheters, penile prostheses, artificial urinary sphincters, and testicular prostheses. The majority of urologic prosthetics are constructed of silicone because it is relatively inert, easily sterilized, maintains its strength, and has not been linked to malignancy. Nevertheless, silicone causes some local tissue reaction and deteriorates with time; thus, it is not the ideal prosthetic material. This article provides the clinician with an overview of the most common of these prostheses, their function, and a guide for the management of associated acute urologic complaints.
