Circumcision and complications in patients with haemophilia in southern part of Turkey: Ã‡ukurova experience.
Summary of "Circumcision and complications in patients with haemophilia in southern part of Turkey: Ã‡ukurova experience."
Summary.â€‚ Circumcision is the oldest and most frequent surgical procedure in the world and especially in Turkey as is seen in the other Islamic countries because of religious and traditional pressures. In this study, we aim to report the experience of circumcision at Ã‡ukurova University in a total of 76 patients with haemophilia between 1990 and 2011. We retrospectively reviewed medical records of 69 haemophilia patients without inhibitors and seven haemophilia patients with inhibitors who had been circumcised. Before the year 2000, factor concentrates were given before and after circumcision for 6-7â€ƒdays. After 2000, we used fibrin glue together with factor concentrates for only 3â€ƒdays. By-passing agents were used for circumcision in haemophilia patients with inhibitors. Twelve of 69 patients without inhibitors were referred to our centre with bleeding after the circumcision before diagnosis of haemophilia. Nine of these twelve patients had severe life threatening bleeding and three of them had moderate bleeding. Sixty-four patients with haemophilia were circumcised in our centre under general anaesthesia except for three patients who were given local anaesthesia. Thirteen of 57 haemophilia patients (22.8%) without inhibitors had seven mild and six moderate bleeding complications. A few patients had significant bleeding, despite adequate factor replacement. Five of seven haemophilia patients with inhibitors had two moderate and three mild bleeding complications. Our experience showed that circumcision for patients with haemophilia should be carefully performed by surgeons together with paediatric haematologist, under appropriate conditions in haemophilia centres which has comprehensive coagulation lab.

Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
An ancient country in western Asia, by the twentieth century divided among the former USSR, Turkey, and Iran. It was attacked at various times from before the 7th century B.C. to 69 B.C. by Assyrians, Medes, Persians, the Greeks under Alexander, and the Romans. It changed hands frequently in wars between Neo-Persian and Roman Empires from the 3d to 7th centuries and later under Arabs, Seljuks, Byzantines, and Mongols. In the 19th century Armenian nationalism arose but suffered during Russo-Turkish hostilities. It became part of the Soviet Republic in 1921, with part remaining under Turkey.

A family of extremely venomous snakes, comprising coral snakes, cobras, mambas, kraits, and sea snakes. They are widely distributed, being found in the southern United States, South America, Africa, southern Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. The elapids include three subfamilies: Elapinae, Hydrophiinae, and Lauticaudinae. Like the viperids, they have venom fangs in the front part of the upper jaw. The mambas of Africa are the most dangerous of all snakes by virtue of their size, speed, and highly toxic venom. (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, p329-33)
