1- Straight hemostat is applied to the posterior midline of the foreskin to provide hemostasis as well as mark the incision.
2- The clamp is removed & a dorsal slit is created. 2 hemostats will be placed on the skin edges of the tip of the dorsal slit & traction applied to straighten out the skin folds to facilitate the surgeon performing the next step. #15 blade is used to make incision.
3- A circumferential freehand cut around the shaft is carried out as far back as the surgeon determines appropriate. If 2 incisions were made, the surgeon will cut around the shaft to remove one piece of tissue & perform the second cut to remove the other piece of tissue.
4- If frenulectomy is to be performed, it may be accomplished at this time. Scissors or cautery may be necessary.
5- Raw edges of the small remainder of the foreskin are pulled together and sutured, leaving the glans and frenulum exposed. Provide Chromic Gut suture on short needle holder & Adson tissue forceps with or without teeth. Suture will be run through bacitracin ointment.
6- Nonadherent dressing is loosely applied to the distal penis.
