  • Patent number: 9504573
    Abstract: A subcutaneous prosthesis for a penis provides two sides of an elongated cylinder, the sides hinged along a top longitudinal edges of the sides. One end of the prosthesis has a gauze sheath providing a means to secure the prosthesis from moving relative to the corpora cavernosa around which it is placed. When the penis is erect it grows in girth thereby causing the two sides of the cylindrical prosthesis to spread divergently and forcing a press-rib against the deep dorsal vein of the penis, thereby restricting blood flow.

  • Patent number: 5669870
    Abstract: An implant device improves the appearance of a penis that is misshapen, damaged or otherwise lacking in a natural anatomical appearance. A bellows like body being lengthwise expandable and generally flexible, is implanted between the penis shaft and the skin of the human penis. In the preferred embodiment, the body takes the shape of a double walled partial cylindrical sleeve, the walls having a bellows-like construction. A soft sponge material is positioned within the sleeve between the sleeve walls. When implanted, the body covers the shaft of the penis and extends in length between the glans penis and the base of the penis. One or more principally closed sacks is/are formed so that the device may receive a fluid from a fluid pressurization source. The present invention is well suited for patients that can achieve a natural erection, yet suffer from a penile malformity.

  • Patent number: 5662709
    Abstract: An implant device is disclosed for expanding the girth of, and improving the appearance of a testis. A pair of soft, flexible bodies are implanted within the scrotum and joined to the testes. Each of the bodies and the testis to which it is attached, take the shape of a sphere. When implanted, the body covers a portion of the testis not including the testicular cord.

  • Patent number: 5445594
    Abstract: An implant device is disclosed for expanding the girth and length of a penis. A soft, flexible body is implanted between the shaft and the skin of the penis. The body takes the shape of a partial cylindrical sleeve that has an outer, relatively elastic sheet member and an inner, relatively inelastic sheet member. When implanted, the body covers the corpus cavernosum of the penis and does not or only partially covers the urethra, and extends in length between the glans penis and the base of the penis. A principally closed sack is formed between the inner and outer sheet members for receiving a fluid under pressure from a fluid source. Spring-like ribs are embedded within the inner sheet member for preventing collapse of the inner sheet member when the body is deflated.
