If the patient’s phalloplasty requires it, the cable can be removed from the ZSI 100 FTM implant to create a shorter implant, the ZSI 100 FTM SHORT. The surgeon makes this modification when placing the implant, making an incision in the silicone in a sterile environment. With the removal of the cable, the ZSI 100 FTM implant can be reduced in size to less than 13 cm, between 7 cm and 12 cm.
The ZSI 100 FTM SHORT implant is similar in appearance to the ZSI 100 FTM implant and gives the penis a natural shape in its erect position. The ZSI 100 FTM SHORT implant maintains its rigidity, but because the implant is smaller, the fold of the implant will be less moldable in the repose position. We recommend that users of the ZSI 100 FTM SHORT fold the implant’s upper section in order to maintain comfort.
A ZSI 100 FTM SHORT implant has already been placed, and the patient is satisfied.
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).
