In-Depth Analysis Highlights Testi10™ Testicular Prosthesis Safety Outcomes

Rigicon proudly announces the publication of a clinical study article titled “Short-term revision rate of Rigicon Testi10™ testicular prosthesis in adolescents and adults: a retrospective chart review” in the International Journal of Impotence Research.

The study evaluated the safety and reliability of Rigicon’s Testi10™ in 427 patients, including 382 adults and 45 adolescents, who underwent implantation between February 2019 and August 2023 by 132 physicians from 45 centers in 26 countries.

The Kaplan-Meier calculation of survival from removal or revision was an impressive 99.8% for all patients at 54 months of follow-up.

The study highlights the generally safe nature of testicular prosthesis implantation and the very rare incidence of revision surgery required for Rigicon Testi10™.

Testicular prosthesis implantation is a valuable solution for the physical, cosmetic, and psychological challenges associated with testicular loss, which can affect males of any age due to conditions such as congenital issues, undescended testes, tumors, torsion, infection, or trauma.

With this publication, Rigicon reinforces its commitment to innovation and improving the quality of life for patients through the development of advanced prosthetic urology solutions backed by clinical research.

About Testicular Prosthesis 

A testicular prosthesis is a medical device used to simulate the appearance and feel of one or both testicles after they have been surgically removed due to conditions such as cancer, trauma, or congenital anomalies.

This device is an option when non-surgical treatments or the use of externally worn prosthetics are not desirable or effective.

The testicular prosthesis is designed to replicate the weight, shape, and texture of a natural testicle, enhancing cosmetic appearance and psychological well-being. It is typically made from silicone, which is inert and biocompatible, minimizing the risk of rejection or allergic reactions.

The testicular prosthesis is considered a safe and effective option for patients seeking to restore the appearance of their testicles after surgery. It is the preferred method for addressing the aesthetic concerns related to an empty scrotum and can be customized to match the size and firmness of the remaining natural testicle if present.
