RE-AUDIT OF EARLY COMPLICATION ESPECIALLY IMPACTION OF DISPOSABLE DEVICE: IMPROVING OUTCOMES OF CIRCUMCISIONS WITH PLASTIBELL AND CIRCUMPLAST RINGS IN CHILDREN IN A COMMUNITY CLINIC

Javaria Akram

AIM: To evaluate the early postoperative complications particularly impaction of disposable devices ( Plastibell and Circumplast ) in children’s circumcision procedures under local anaesthesia between different age groups, size and types of rings, and different doctors in a community clinic.
MATERIAL AND METHODS
In our re-audit, the outcome of circumcisions (n=1449) was studied over a 1 year period (May 2016 to April 2017) performed under local anaesthesia, by trained doctors in a community clinic doing Circumplast Circumcisions (CC) (n=470) and Plastibell circumcisions (PC) (n=979). Data was collected prospectively and early postoperative complications especially ring impaction were compared between age of the child, size and types of device, and doctors who have performed the circumcision. Follow-up was arranged if required.
RESULTS
The mean age was 6.5±0.4 months (median 1.6). Overall complication rate was 6.7% (97/1449). There is no significant difference in overall complications rate in CC (7% n=33/470) versus PC (6.5% n=64/979) (p>0.5). Although ring impaction is significantly lower in Circumplast circumcision  (0.4% n=2/470) versus Plastibell circumcision (3.4% n=33/979) (p<0.05) but it has significantly improved from the previous audit (CC 3.2% n=7/208 versus PC 8.7% n=102/1179 – ESPU 2016). There is significantly lower incidence in ring impaction with Plastibell size 1.4 as compared to 1.3, 1.5 and 1.7. There is no impaction in 1.1 and 1.2 sizes. Ring impaction was significantly lower in infants versus over 1 year child (1.5% vs 10% n= 19/1280 vs 17/169, p<0.5) respectively. There is no significant difference in complications (8.5%, 7.1%, 6.5%, 5.8% and 5%) among the five doctors’ cases (p>0.5). Mean follow-up for 354 (24%) children were 14 days (median 6).
CONCLUSIONS
This concludes that no significant difference noted in overall early complications of circumcisions between age of the child, size and types of device used, and among different doctors. However, ring impaction was significantly lower in infants, Plastibell size 1.4 and Circumplast.

Circumcisions with Circumplast has reached to 1000 in number at Thornhill and London (Leyton and Croydon) clinic in October 2016

Circumcisions with Circumplast has reached to 1000 in number at Thornhill and London (Leyton, Oliver Road, and Croydon) clinic in October 2016.

Non-therapeutic male circumcision by the Circumplast device can be safely performed in a community clinic. This novel device decreases the risks of complication especially in children under 3 months of age.

Outcome of Circumplast and Plastibell at Thornhill Circumcision Centre

Javaria Akram

This cohort study will evaluate the early postoperative complications in Circumplast and Plastibell techniques, in a community clinic- Thornhill Circumcision Centre, for non-therapeutic male circumcision.

We reviewed the outcome of non-therapeutic male circumcision in children (n=1387) over a 1 year period (May 2014 to April 2015) in a community clinic - Thornhill clinic , performed under local anaesthesia, by trained doctors with the backup of a trained paediatric surgeon (figure 1-4). The technique was selected by doctors’ preference. Data was collected prospectively and early postoperative complications were compared between Circumplast and Plastibell circumcisions. Follow-up consultations were arranged if required.

The mean age was 18 ± 1.9 months (median 5.1) in Circumplast circumcision (CC) and 9.4 ± 0.6 months (median 1.5) in Plastibell circumcision (PC). Incidence of complications is significantly lower in CC (6.3% n=13/208) versus PC (13% n=154/1179) (p<0.05) (complications graph). Postoperative use of antibiotics was higher in CC versus PC (6.7% vs 3.8% n=14 vs 45) but not statistically significant (P>0.05). Mean follow-up consultations were 19 days (range 1 to 373) in CC and 20 days (range 1 to 305) in PC.

Outcome

Non-therapeutic male circumcision by the Circumplast device has a significantly lower risk of early postoperative complications in a community clinic, especially migration/impaction of the ring when compared to the standard Plastibell device.
