OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of standardized male circumcision with Shang Ring in reducing postoperative complications.
METHODS: We performed standardized male circumcision with Shang Ring for 351 males aged 4-58 (mean 31) years, 46 with phimosis and 305 with redundant prepuce, and observed the complications, including postoperative bleeding, infection, edema, and wound dehiscence.
RESULTS: The main complications included infection (5 cases, 1.42%), mild edema (9 cases, 2.56%), moderate edema (5 cases, 1.42%), and wound dehiscence (6 cases, 1.71%), but no postoperative bleeding was observed.
CONCLUSION: Using the standard protocol of circumcision with Shang Ring, well-trained male circumcision providers can significantly reduce postoperative complications and enhance the patient's satisfaction. Normalized training of the circumcision providers is essential for the popularization of standardized male circumcision with Shang Ring.
