Neonatal circumcision: a ten-year overview: with comparison of the Gomco clamp and the Plastibell device



Pediatrics 58(6): 824-827



The records of 5,882 live male births were reviewed to ascertain the incidence and nature of complications following neonatal circumcision. Approximately one half of the patients were circumcised with the Gomco and half with the Plastibell. The incidence of complications was 0.2%; most frequent were hemmorrhage, infection, and trauma, there were no deaths; and no transfusions were given.
