Abstract

Purpose: Circumcision is widely practiced in Korea. Circumcision has been popularly performed with mechanical devices such as the Gomco clamp, the Plastibell device and other modified devices. We investigate the effect of using a new device (the circumcision clamp). Materials and Methods: We conducted a retrospective study between December 2003 and February 2004 on 75 patients who wanted circumcision. 25 patients were operated on by performing conventional circumcision, and 50 patients were operated on by using the circumcision clamp. Results: The mean operation time for the new device group was shorter than that for the conventional circumcision group (p < 0.05). No significant difference of complications was noted between the conventional circumcision group and the circumcision clamp group. Conclusions: The new method with using the circumcision clamp has a benefit as it is designed to expose the glans and it saves operating time.
