For me, this doesn't pass the smell test (not you 2435tjklAS, the AMS claims) . They advertise up to a 25% increase in length? C'mon man! Increase over what baseline? Flaccid? So if you have a 20cm implant installed you can expect to pump up to a 25cm implant? That's nearly 2" longer for us old school rubes. 25% of the distal portion of the implant? So if you're 10cm proximal and 10cm distal you'll have an additional 2.5cm of growth, or another inch on the business end of your penis?
It just don't make no sense.
Notice that they state the patient will have the "opportunity" to maintain or regain length, nothing about increasing length. That statement is a whole lot of nothing.
This study below, completed in 2018 (not 2010 like some AMS refers to in that ad) concluded this: "Implantation of the length expanding AMS 700 LGX cylinders are not sufficient for increasing stretched penile length." And their results after 12 months of the LGX being installed show "On average, there was a statistically significant decrease
in stretched penile length (Figure 2b; 12.5–11.2 cm, P = 0.0016). There was no change in depth of prepubic fat and flaccid penile length across visits. An increase in stretched penile length was seen in only 6 (23.1%) patients" (emphasis added)
Most interesting to me is that AMS and Boston Scientific PAID for this study from 2018, yet they refer to studies from 2010 claiming the LGX will result in up to 25% increase in length, and also claim that patients had a median increase of 3cm in length, are doctors implanting 12cm cylinders somewhere? If the average cylinder implanted is 20cm (I don't know that), then a median increase of 3cm would be 15%.
25% increase makes me think of Inspector Gadget and his go go gadget arms.
There are also many studies showing that the rigidity of the LGX is much lower than the Titan or CX. I can only assume due to this "stretchable" portion of the cylinders.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6337945/
