Only a few cases with mechanical failure has been reported with the malleablepenile prosthesis. A 66 year old man, using the AMS 650® (American Medical Systems, Minnesota) malleable penile prosthesis for five years, was admitted with complaining a difficulty in sexual intercourse in the last weeks. Preopera-tive radiology and surgical exploration demonstrated a fracture in both rods. The malfunctioning penile prosthesis was removed, and a new AMS 650® malleable penile prosthesis was implanted. At 12 months follow-up no trouble with the new prosthesis was occurred.
