PrePex – The Only Male Circumcision Device Approved by the WHO
The PrePex device from Circ MedTech has received WHO prequalification. This means that it can now be used in 14 African countries. Despite advancements in technology, circumcision continues to be one of the most effective ways of preventing AIDS. This is despite the fact that it still affects tens to millions of people. 70% of new HIV cases in the world occur in Sub-Saharan Africa. This new technology can dramatically reduce AEs and shorten the time required for surgery.
To facilitate equitable access to male circumcision devices, the World Health Organization established the Prequalification Programme for Male Circumcision for HIV Prevention. This accreditation indicates that the device has met international standards in the manufacture, quality management, and clinical studies. Although prequalification is not a substitute for local regulatory processes, it does pave the way for the procurement of devices by WHO member states and United Nations agencies.

The Plastibell, a sterile device, was invented in 1950 by Hollister Inc. It is a clear, plastic ring with handles. There are six sizes available, corresponding to the size of the glans. The Bell should fit about 2/3 of the penis. It should be snug enough to stop blood from leaking into your foreskin. A smaller bell may lead to tissue necrosis.

The Shang Ring has been well-accepted by study participants, causing minimal disruption of sleep and work. Although there was some discomfort, it did not affect the patient’s quality of life. The Shang Ring was praised by most subjects as a useful device that they would recommend to others. Further research is needed in order to determine the effectiveness and safety of the Shang Ring. This is a significant step forward in male circumcision. Safety approval is available for the newest generation of male girdle.

The Plastibell circumcision device is built on a steel circumcision rings that Cecil Ross patented in 1939. The Plastibell was the first to commercialize Ross’s device. It is also the progenitor all subsequent “in situ” devices. A plastic ring, which is about the same size as a golf ring, is placed under the foreskin below the corona. A tourniquet-like ligature device secures the ring to the remaining foreskin, which detaches and necroses. It can be surgically removed in between four and seven days.
