The Circumplast

Image, the Circumplast

The Circumplast® circumcision device is of Australian origin, with quality control for the purposes of CE accreditation overseen by TÜV Rheinland. It claims to be a low-cost, simple-to-use device with the special advantage that the ring cannot migrate proximally and thus dig into tissue that should not be affected by the circumcision procedure. Such migration has, over many years, been reported as a potential problem with the nominally similar Plastibell device in cases where that design has been used for tight styles of circumcision. The Circumplast® device received FDA clearance for sale and use in the USA on September 18th 2015.

Circlist Editorial comment:

It is interesting to note the advice that the frenulum should be removed prior to fitting the ring. It is often felt that this makes for a more comfortable and effective result. Frenulum removal should also help the ring to seat evenly, something often overlooked in commentary about fit-&-wear devices generally.
