American Medical Systems Announces U.S. Launch of Conceal™ Low Profile Reservoir for Penile Prosthetics

MINNETONKA, Minn., Feb. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- American Medical Systems® (AMS) (Nasdaq: AMMD), a leading provider of world-class devices and therapies for male and female pelvic health, today announced the full U.S. launch of its new Conceal™ Low Profile Reservoir, an enhancement to the already market-leading AMS 700® three-piece inflatable penile prosthesis for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED).

The Conceal reservoir is compatible with all AMS 700 cylinder and pump configurations and offers the flexibility of a one-size-fits-all design that can accommodate 65-100ml of fluid, based on the specific needs of each patient. The flatter, low-profile design features the same great functionality and reliability as the current spherical reservoir, and Conceal is available with or without AMS' InhibiZone® antibiotic treatment.

In a highly successful limited launch, participating physicians reported being very pleased and excited about Conceal. Dr Lawrence Hakim from the Cleveland Clinic, Florida stated, "I am very satisfied with the performance of the new Conceal Low Profile Reservoir. In a single reservoir, I get all of the flexibility I need and I fully expect it to become my go-to reservoir of choice." Real-world benefits noted by physicians in the limited launch of Conceal included ease of placement, volume flexibility and eliminating the need to size the reservoir.

AMS' penile prosthetic solutions provide a permanent, surgical option for men who are unsatisfied with the results from other ED treatment options, such as oral medications, and have at least a 91 percent patient satisfaction rate. ED affects some 30 million men in the United States and is often brought on by prostate cancer treatment, diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease.

"With this new reservoir design, AMS continues to demonstrate our commitment to prosthetic urology and support to our physicians," said Whitney Erickson, senior vice president and general manager for Men's Health at AMS. "As a company, we remain dedicated to raising the bar for innovation in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, and our customers can rest assured that we will continue to invest in new technology to improve the treatment options for physicians and the quality of life for their patients."
