Report on the surgery performed on October 19, 2016, in Montreal’s Centre Métropolitain de Chirurgie (metropolitan surgery center), in which an FTM patient received a ZSI 475 implant for biological men. Dr. Brassard and Dr. Bélanger directed the procedure.
Our ZSI 475 FTM and ZSI 100 FTM implants are still not registered in Canada.
Dr. Brassard, whom ZSI has interacted with on numerous occasions in international conferences and in his clinic, was interested in the quality of our implants, for use with FTM patients as well as biological men. He appreciated the rigidity (similar in the two implants) and the silicone structure of the proximal part of the ZSI 475 implant, which attaches easily to the FTM patient’s pubic bone.
ZSI’s technical support team was present during the insertion of the ZSI 475 in the FTM patient, in order to provide any necessary support. The mood was good in the operating room. Completed without problems and with good attachment, the insertion fulfilled the expectations of the patient and the doctors.
The ZSI 475 penile implant for biological men is delivered with all available sizes in a single box (photo). Before the insertion, Dr. Brassard selected one size before finally settling on another more suitable for the patient. Because all the implant sizes come in one box, Dr. Brassard was able to choose the ideal size for the patient without having to open other boxes and thus generate additional cost. Other products available on the market arrive in as many as 14 different boxes, which doctors must open to assemble the implant. If they open additional boxes, they generate additional cost. ZSI resolves this problem by providing all available sizes of the implant in a single box.
ZSI’s ongoing quest to improve its products is the reason for the company’s success.
ZSI is the only European manufacturer of artificial urinary sphincters and of malleable and inflatable penile implants, as solutions for male urological problems (incontinence), sexual complications (Erectile Dysfunction), and gender identity procedures (prostheses for trans men and women).
