Adult circumcision with glue and stitches under local anaesthesia in our Thornhill clinic over 2 years ( Presented as a poster at London Healthcare Conference 2017)
Thornhill Clinic, 1-3 Thornhill Road, Luton, Bedfordshire, England
The widespread acceptance of adult local anaesthesia circumcision in the community remains debatable. We report outcomes (Glue and Stiches) from a dedicated GP clinic over two year period. Patient demographics, indications and postoperative complications were recorded prospectively.
Of 372 circumcisions (glue n=269 and stitches n=103), 230 (62 %) patients had medical indications including 63 (17%) balanitis xerotica obliterans and 11 (2.9%) had minor complications (infection n=6, bleeding n=2 and redo n=3) with no significant difference between the two groups.
Circumcision performed in adults remains a safe surgical option under local anaesthesia in dedicated GP surgeries. This could help ease pressure on local urology departments.
