  • Patent number: 11549598
    Abstract: According to an aspect, an inflatable penile prosthesis includes a fluid reservoir configured to hold fluid, an inflatable member, and a pump assembly configured to transfer the fluid between the fluid reservoir and the inflatable member. The pump assembly includes a valve body, a pump bulb, and a deflation mode actuator. The valve body includes a bi-directional valve configured to move from an inflation position to a deflation position in response to an activation of the deflation mode actuator. The bi-directional valve in the inflation position is configured to open a fluid passageway in the valve body to transfer fluid from the pump bulb to the inflatable member. The bi-directional valve in the deflation position is configured to open a fluid passageway in the valve body to transfer fluid from the inflatable member to the fluid reservoir that bypasses the pump bulb.

  • Publication number: 20220211503
    Abstract: According to an aspect, an inflatable penile prosthesis includes a fluid reservoir, an inflatable member, and a pump assembly. The pump assembly includes a pump bulb, a valve body, a push valve movably coupled to the valve body, a first fluid port, and a second fluid port. The push valve includes a movable valve element configured to move between an inflation position and a deflation position within a bore of the valve body. The movable valve element in the inflation position defines a fluid passageway through the bore to transfer fluid from the pump bulb to the second fluid port. The movable valve element, when moved to the deflation position, is configured to change the fluid passageway through the bore to transfer fluid from the second fluid port to the first fluid port such that the pump bulb is bypassed.
