Alloplastics in the Treatment of Erectile Dysfunction

  • U. Jonas


In contrast to other mammal species such as the whale, dog, bear, gibbon, or otter, the human male does not have a penile bone inside his penis to enforce erection. Despite earlier surgical efforts to treat erectile impotence by the resection of the dorsal vein of the penis it seemed logical that Bogoras in 1936 used a part of rib cartilage in order to reinforce rigidity in the penis. However, the rib cartilage and bone implants were reabsorbed after several months and therefore the effect abolished [7, 22, 24].
