Histo pathological changes that occurs in thermo cautery circumcision and the range of damage prepuce from thermal effect in comparison with scalpel circumcision


Circumcision is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures worldwide. It is known that more than one million children are circumcised annually in the USA alone . Moreover, the WHO has begun to recommend circumcision on the basis of studies indicating its positive effects on human health and especially its role in protection from AIDS . Because of this, thousands of people have been circumcised by many migratory circumcision teams, especially in Africa.

Considering that 1 200 000 children are born annually in Turkey and 51% of them are male, on the basis of data from the Turkish Institute of Statistics, it may be speculated that about 60 000 circumcisions are performed annually in Turkey.

However, the circumcision procedure cannot be performed in health institutions as a routine procedure because of health regulations. When the Social Security Institute incorporated circumcision into the social insurance coverage in 2007, it led to circumcision being performed in the health institutions. Health institutions that were already burdened cannot meet the demands for circumcision. Thus, the search has begun for faster and reliable circumcision techniques with fewer complications. The present study aimed to compare bipolar thermal cautery-assisted circumcision technique, considered to be capable of meeting such demands, with the classical circumcision technique.

Aim of Work This study is aiming to assess the outcome of using thermo cautery in circumcision

Surgical Steps:

small skin incision over prepuce by thermo cautery

stitching if there is bleeding

Insertion of a urinary catheter if suspect uretheral injury
