The combination of a neourethra and erection prosthesis in a single neophallus in the female-to-male transsexual remains a challenge. No good data are available on this subject.

From March 1996 until October 2007, 129 female-to-male transsexuals with a neophallus underwent the implantation of an erectile prosthesis. The mean follow-up was 30.2 mo (range: 0–132 mo).

Despite high complication rates, implantation of a hydraulic erectile prosthesis remains the best option for achieving the possibility of sexual intercourse in female-to-male transsexuals.
