I have audited 172 adults circumcision in one year - Jan 2013- Dec 2013 at Thornhill Clinic, Luton
Medical due to phimosis - Balanitis Xerotica Obliterans (BXO) n=20
Infection n=6 (3.4%) treated with antibiotics
Minor bleeding n=5 (3%) conservatively treated
Wound gap n=2 (1%), topical antibiotics
Overall, Circumcision with Glue is better than stitches because of less pain, less infection and less scaring. Glue is waterproof so that patients can have a shower next day.
