Doctors Report Rare Case of ‘Penile Strangulation’

According to the Irish Medical Journal (IMJ), a recent report has emerged that doctors in emergency department of the Mater University Hospital in Dublin faced an unusual medical dilemma after a metal ring became stuck on a man’s penis.

It said the man had put on the “titanium-based ring” seven hours beforehand and attended the emergency department after suffering from intense “pain and swelling”.

The rare case of “penile strangulation” finally required a fire brigade crew to use an angle grinder to remove the ring, after the man was sedated.
