Over the years, We have received numerous questions regarding our Disposable Circumcision Stapler, and some of the most frequently asked questions are "What is a Disposable Circumcision Stapler?" "Why should we use it, provided that we already have the conventional method?". Today's blog is dedicated to these two questions.
First, "What is a Disposable Circumcision Stapler?". To answer the question, we need to start from the very beginning. According to the WHO, significant evidence exists that male circumcision delivers health benefits, such as a decreased risk of urinary tract infections, STD, and invasive penile cancer, as well as HIV. It also offers protection against penile cancer and a reduced risk of cervical cancer in female sex partners. It is estimated that 30% of the men are circumcised globally. With these evident benefits combined with religious and historical reasons, a huge circumcision market emerges. The safety and efficacy of the circumcision procedures then become the main focus in today's world. Therefore, Disposable Circumcision Stapler is developed in needs, greatly improving safety, efficacy, and efficiency of the circumcision procedures. The device include a plastibell,the same as we see in the market, to protect the penis and staples used for suturing. When the device is fired with handles, the circular blade inside the sheath will cut the foreskin; simultaneously, staples will suture the wound. These processes are all done in a single firing without any other devices needed. In short, Disposable Circumcision Stapler is a one-step, foolproof device for circumcision procedures that can achieve excellent postoperative results with minimal procedural time.

Second, "So, what are the concrete reasons that we should use Disposable Circumcision Stapler?". There have been studies about the comparison between the circumcision staplers and the conventional methods. According to the research, "Adult male circumcision with a circular stapler versus conventional circumcision: A prospective randomized clinical trial",
"the operative time, pain score, blood loss volume, healing time, treatment costs, and postoperative complications were compared between the two groups. The operative time and blood loss volume were significantly lower in the stapler group than in the conventional group (6.8 ± 3.1 vs 24.2 ± 3.2 min and 1.8 ± 1.8 vs 9.4 ± 1.5 mL, respectively; P<0.01 for both). The intraoperative and postoperative pain scores were significantly lower in the stapler group than in the conventional group (0.8 ± 0.5 vs 2.4 ± 0.8 and 4.0 ±0.9 vs 5.8 ± 1.0, respectively; P<0.01 for both). Additionally, the stapler group had significantly fewer complications than the conventional group (2.7% vs7.8%, respectively; P<0.01). "
In other words, circumcision staplers shorten the operative time of surgeons by 75% and reduce the pain of patients by 67%. The blood loss volume and healing time are also significantly reduced, and fewer postoperative complications are observed. In addition to these benefits, Disposable Circumcision Staplers are easier to operate and offer smoother stapling appearance as compared to the more nodular appearance found in the suturing and clamping method.
(Note that Clamping method includes Alisklamp and Smartklamp).
These benefits do not come with nothing. It is reported that staplers have higher cost than clamps. According to the research,"(US$356.60 ± 8.20 vs US$126.50 ± 7.00, respectively; P<0.01)". This is, however, not necessarily the case. At Changzhou Haida Medical Equipment Co., Ltd, we promised to offer premium medical instruments at a discounted price.
To conclude, Disposable Circumcision Stapler is a product developed to meet today's clinical needs. It shortens the operative time of the procedure, reduces the pain of patients, has fewer complications, and is much easier to operate for surgeons. With the price lowering gradually, it is safe to conclude that Disposable Circumcision Stapler is the future for circumcision procedures.
