Introduction of the Benefits and Usage of the Circumcision Stapler

The circumcision is one of the earliest surgical procedures performed in men, with a history of more than 5000 years.

The specific procedure of circumcision stapler:

  • Measurement: Measure the size of the glans with a ruler and select the appropriate circumcision instruments set specification.

  • Prepare the skin: Routine skin preparation, disinfect with iodine on a towel.

  • Anesthesia: Routine local anesthesia, sacral anesthesia, general anesthesia for uncooperative children, waiting for anesthesia to take effect.

  • Treatment of complications.

  • Place the glans.

  • Determine the cutting position.

  • Put on the main shell.

  • Complete the cutting and suturing.

  • Exit the circumcision stapler.

  • Stop bleeding.

  • Double-layer bandage.

Advantages and benefits of using circumcision stapler:

  • Generally, no suture is needed. The circumcision stapler releases the closure staples while applying pressure to the incision, and the density of the closure staples is sufficient to align the incision and stop bleeding, so there is generally no need for suture.

  • The operation time of staple circumcision is short, usually only 5 to 10 minutes, while traditional surgery requires 20 to 30 minutes. The shortened operation time reduces the patient's pain, anxiety, and tension.

  • There is less bleeding because the circumcision stapler releases the staples at the same time as cutting to stop bleeding, so it combines the step of cutting with scissors and finding bleeding spots to stop bleeding in traditional surgery, significantly reducing the amount of bleeding.

  • No electrocautery is needed during the operation. Traditional circumcision usually uses electrocautery, and some studies have found that high-frequency electrocautery and laser knives used during surgery may cause serious postoperative complications. Although the probability of this occurrence is extremely low, it is also a dangerous factor to be alert to. The circumcision stapler successfully avoids this dangerous factor at the closure site.

  • The appearance of circumcision stapler is clean and beautiful, and the postoperative scar is small. Since the traditional surgery requires the use of tissue scissors to manually cut the inner and outer foreskin plates, the edges are often not particularly tidy. However, the circumcision stapler directly cuts off the excessively grown tissue with a circular mold at the closure site, ensuring the neatness of the foreskin edge and shape. The sutures are evenly distributed between the closure staples, the incision is perfectly aligned, the healing is better, and the postoperative scar is smaller.

  • Wounds recover quickly, and complications are rare. Due to the short operation time, less bleeding, relatively less tissue damage, and dense suture staples, the risk of postoperative bleeding, infection, and edema is lower than that of traditional surgery. The sutures and staples begin to fall off gradually after about 7 days, and they generally fall off within 2 to 3 weeks. Only a few patients need to come to the hospital to remove the suture staples.

  • Only one surgeon can complete the operation of circumcision stapler, and the operation is simple and convenient.
