Introduction: Insertion of penile prosthesis for treatment of irreversible erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common and well-established treatment in the western countries. Even in the times of the newly available oral medications, penile prostheses continue to have such a nonoptional place in the management of severe ED. In this study, we have assessed the satisfaction among semiurban Indian couples following insertion of the semirigid penile prosthesis. Materials and Methods: Between January 2000 and December 2015, 78 men with ED underwent semirigid penile prosthesis implantation (PPI) at our hospital. The satisfaction of patients and partners was evaluated using the ED Inventory of Treatment Satisfaction (EDITS) questionnaire and EDITS partner survey. Results: The mean age of the patients was 44.84 ± 7.30 years. The mean duration of time with ED in the preimplantation period was 38.69 ± 12.44 months. The satisfaction of patients and partners as assessed by EDITS questionnaire and EDITS partner survey was 80.66 ± 4.49 and 75.66 ± 6.57, respectively, at 12 months after surgery and 71.73 ± 8.10 and 65.6 ± 6.49, respectively, at 24 months after surgery. Conclusions: This study showed a high degree of satisfaction among patients as well as their partners with semirigid PPI. More than 80% of the men reported being very satisfied with their penile implantation surgery.
