Paper Abstract

Eight-hundred-sixty cases of circumcision using CO2 laser are reported. The age of patients ranged from 9 - 65 years, with a mean age of 23.8 years. The technique was simple and can be quickly accomplished by a single operator. After local anesthesia the glans penis was protected by a protector. Then, circumcision was performed with a CO2 laser -- HeNe laser combined machine. There was an HeNe laser aiming system in this machine thus the surgeon had a three-dimensional visible indicator of the incision. The focusing CO2 laser beam was used for cutting the prepuce during the operation. There was almost no operative bleeding. All the patients needed no antibiotic postoperatively. Complications were minimal and satisfactory results were achieved.
