How about Diabetics? – Penile implant
Diabetics are prone to infection and/or long healing process. Is this condition troubling in the prosthesis procedure?
In our hands diabetic men have fewer infections than non-diabetics. The reason for this observation is unknown. One explanation is perhaps that diabetics have decreased blood flow to the penis and therefore bleed less during surgery. Collection or accumulation of blood (hematoma) in the cavity of the scrotum increases the risk of infection and this is less likely to occur in patients with poor circulation.
