    • Selection of anesthesia to reduce anxiety, worry and fear in male circumcision


      Conclusion: The stress (fear, concern and anxiety) caused by the anesthesia method used during the circumcision procedure in the child can be detected using VPT and FIS. We concluded that circumcision performed with LA [Lokalanästhesie] may cause more stress in children than with GA [Narkose] as the VPT and FIS values were significantly higher. GA should therefore be preferred in children aged 4-12 years as it will cause less stress, despite the anesthesia duration and the possible risks.
      Und Kinder? Jungen unter 4 Jahren könne den Stress besser ab?

      Indeed, as the history of female circumcision suggests, if male circumcision were confined to developing nations, it would by now have emerged as an international cause celebre, stirring passionate opposition from feminists, physicians, politicians, and the global human rights community.
      If routine medical circumcision didn't exist today, no one would dare to invent it.
