Aim: To compare patient and partner satisfaction rates after implantation of malleable and two piece inflatable penile protheses in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Material and Method: The modified Erectile Dysfunction Inventory of Treatment Satisfaction (EDITS) questionnaire was administered six months after implantation of penile prostheses in 65 patients. 40 patients with malleable (Promedon-Tube) prostheses and 25 patients with two- piece inflatable (Ambicore) prostheses between February 2008 and May 2016 and the results were analyzed. Results: The percentages of patients with malleable penile prostheses and partners who reported they were very satisfied with their prostheses were 77.5% and 87.5% respectively. For patients with two-piece inflatable penile prostheses and partners these percentages were 88% and 96%. There was no statistical significance between patients and partners in terms of satisfaction. There was no statistically significant difference between patients using the two different penile protheses in terms of answers to the modified EDITS questionnaires. For patients and partners the overall satisfaction percentages were 80 % (52/65), and 89.2 % (58/65) respectively. Discussion: Both penile prostheses provided high patient and partner satisfaction
