Circumcision can be performed with the Gomco circumcision clamp, the Mogen circumcision clamp, or the PlastiBell
The surgical techniques used today include the PlastiBell
, Gomco clamp, Mogen clamp, Smart clamp, Tara clamp, Shang Ring, and thermocautery.
For neonatal circumcision, devices such as the Gomco[R] (Yellen clamp), Plastibell
Objective: The objective of the study is to compare circumcision by plastibell
and open method in terms of bleeding, infection and cosmesis.

In contrast, the Plastibell
(like the PrePex device) induces gradual necrosis; however, whereas the PrePex device employs an Elastic Ring, the Plastibell
employs a string tied tightly around the foreskin to press in against a bell-shaped component that fits over the glans.
Commonly used circumcision techniques include the use of the Gomco clamp, Plastibell
, Mogan clamp, and a variety of freehand methods.
Available techniques for neonatal circumcision include the Plastibell
method and the Gomco and Mogen clamps (30).
Using the same principle as the Plastibell
used in circumcising neonates, the devices sandwich the mucosal and skin layers of the foreskin between concentric inner and outer rings, allowing for sutureless circumcision.
Penile injuries from proximal migration of the plastibell
Despite the fact that the Mogen clamp "may provide a less painful procedure, compared with the Gomco clamp or the Plastibell
method," use of the Mogen clamp was taught in only 38% of the programs, vs.
