Various methods of circumcision are dorsal slit technique, plastibell
technique, Hollister bell technique, Guillotine method, Sleeve technique etc.
Urethral obstruction rarely happens after circumcision; some serious cases of urinary retention have been reported after using PlastiBell
device and in one case meatal obstruction led to septic shock, metabolic disturbances, and finally death in a neonate .
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.2,3 The diversity of circumcision techniques is the result of the search for more practical, cheaper, safer, and less complicated methods.
For neonatal circumcision, devices such as the Gomco[R] (Yellen clamp), Plastibell
The most frequently performed method of circumcision was an open method using a blade with no suturing and no general anaesthesia (69.6%, mean circumcision age: 11.9 [+ or -] 22 months) followed by Plastibell
circumcision (18.8%, mean circumcision age: 10.3 [+ or -] 25 months).
Objective: The objective of the study is to compare circumcision by plastibell
and open method in terms of bleeding, infection and cosmesis.
Neonatal circumcision: A ten-year overview: With comparison of the Gomco clamp and the Plastibell
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.
