Treatment Options and Outcomes of Penile Constriction Devices

Abstract: Purpose: To study the effect of penile constriction devices used on a large series of patients who presented at our emergency facility. We explored treatment options to prevent a wide range of vascular and mechanical injuries occurring due to penile entrapment. Materials and Methods: Between January 2001 and March 2016, 26 patients with penile entrapment were admitted to our facility and prospectively evaluated. Results: The time that elapsed… Show more

“…Prolonged reduction of venous return may eventually result in distal penile edema from the entrapment site, blocked the arterial supply, and eventually damages the sensitive soft tissues of the male external genitalia. 3 After several hours of compromised circulation, penile strangulation may eventually lead to ischemic necrosis, urinary retention, fibrosis of the tissue, even multiorgan failure due to septic shock. 4 Bhat et al have developed a grading system to describe the severity spectrum of penile entrapment ( Table 1 ).…”

“…4,6,7 These objects are inserted with various intentions ranging from treatment of erectile dysfunction, autoerotic intention, psychiatric disorder and sexual violence. 8 Different types of injuries can be produced by a metal ring through a combination of vascular and mechanical means. Initially, there is obstruction to lymphatic and venous drainage which leads to increase in hydrostatic pressure and tissue edema.…”
