PREOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: Elective circumcision. POSTOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: Elective circumcision. OPERATION: Circumcision. ANESTHESIA: General, with caudal supplementation. CLINICAL INDICATIONS: presents for circumcision. The patient is a nearly 2-year-old male who PROCEDURE: The patient had uneventful circumcision, sleeve style, as an outpatient. After appropriate counseling, the patient was brought to the operating room and prepped and draped for surgery. After anesthesia, intravenous antibiotics, caudal nerve block and after prepping and draping maneuvers, we placed a 5-0 Prolene in the glans, took some adhesions down and went ahead and reprepped the patient. An incision was made 5 mm below the coronal margin. The skin was taken down to the midshaft of the penis and then pulled over the head of the penis. A sleeve circumcision was performed by making another circumferential incision, then using the cautery to take down the vascular supply to the foreskin. Bleeding was taken care of with 0.5 and the cautery, then the circumcision was sewn up circumferentially with interrupted 6-0 PDS suture. There was some excess frenular tissue which was excised and also primarily sewn up. The procedure was then completed, and Xeroform gauze and Tegaderm were used for a dressing.
