Circumcision Clamps

Potential for injury from two commonly used circumcision clamps, the Gomcor/gomco-type and Mogenr/mogen-type clamps. Both are widely used during circumcision to remove the foreskin while protecting the glans penis. FDA received 105 reports of injuries involving circumcision clamps between July 1996 and January 2000. These have included laceration, hemorrhage, penile amputation, and urethral damage.
