The authors of a study circumcision complications issue a particular warning against the Plastibell circumcision device, used on nearly 60% of the boys in their survey who required emergency treatment, pointing out that is not as safe as claimed by the circumcision providers and “specialist circumcision clinics” that commonly use it. They identify 4 recent studies detailing complications arising from the device and comment: “While it is reported to be a quick and simple method preferred by many providers, these studies have revealed method-dependent concerns. This includes concern about what is the appropriate length of time for the device to be retained, an increase in infection and increase in analgesia requirement post-operatively. We identified that 54 boys (%) were circumcised by this method in the community. There was particular concern and poor understanding about the appropriate length of time the Plastibell ring should remain in situ, which could be addressed in improved information for parents.”
