How it Works

The AMS 800 System is filled with saline and uses the fluid to open and close the cuff surrounding the urethra. When you need to urinate, you squeeze and release the pump in the scrotum several times to remove fluid from the cuff. When the cuff is empty, urine can flow out of the bladder. The cuff automatically refills in a few minutes squeezing the urethra closed to restore bladder control.

The Procedure

The AUS procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis or may require a short hospital stay. Small openings are made near the scrotum and below the abdomen to insert an inflatable cuff, a pump and a small balloon (pressure regulating balloon). The surgery is performed under anesthesia. Four to six weeks after surgery, you will return to the urologist’s office to have the AUS activated.33


As with any medical procedure, complications can occur. Requires manual dexterity; some risks include, but are not limited to, device malfunction or failure which may require revision surgery, wearing away/loss of tissue (device/tissue erosion), inability to urinate (urinary retention), infection and postoperative pain.33, 49-51 Click here for additional safety information. Caution: U.S. Federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
