DANISH RESEARCHERS SHOCKING STUDY: CIRCUMCISION SCARS THE PEE HOLE "URINARY STRICTURE DISEASE (USD) Meatal stenosis is markedly more common in circumcised than genitally intact males, affecting 5–20 per cent of circumcised boys. "By using comprehensive epidemiological data from the Urologic Diseases in America Project, researchers estimated that male USD in the United States is the cause of more than 5000 inpatient visits and approximately 1.5 million office visits per year at an annual cost of approximately US$ 200 million.57 To the best of our knowledge, our study is the first to report on the potential impact of circumcision on the burden of USD beyond the first few days or months of life. "In conclusion, our two-part epidemiological investigation corroborates longstanding clinical knowledge that non-therapeutic circumcision puts boys at markedly elevated relative risk of USD. These findings, combined with clinical evidence that somewhere between 5% and 20% of circumcised boys will eventually develop meatal stenosis, call for a thorough assessment of the burden of urethral troubles and other adverse outcomes after non-therapeutic circumcision of boys." ~Morten Frisch & Jacob Simonsen Published by Elsevier on behalf of Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. These findings are consistent with the report that Johns Hopkins Medicine removed from its website last spring after I posted it. " *** Johns Hopkins Medicine REMOVES INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE FROM ITS WEBSITE *** Fortunately the Internet remembers. "Pediatric urologist Ming-Hsien Wang had seen one too many parents with complaints about their child’s “office procedure” to correct meatal stenosis, a common complication of circumcision characterized by a difficult-to-aim urinary stream and painful, prolonged urination due to the development of scar tissue at the urethral meatus and frequent urinary accidents."
