    DESCRIPTION OF INVENTION

A DISPOSABLE CIRCUMCISION DEVICE

INTRODUCTION

    Circumcision is one of the commonest surgeries performed all over the world. It is generally performed either in a surgical theater, at home or as in some countries even at the roadsides or in the bush etc.

    Circumcision methods vary in different regions and problems e.g. infections, accidental amputations of the glans penis, bleeding etc. continue to occur. This happens even in circumcisions performed in an operating theater. This research identified that most of these problems continue to occur because in all the circumcisions methods or devices invented so far, the surgery is of invasive type.

    This invention enables circumcisions to be performed not only safely and easily but also

    ----- for the first time in surgical history ----- enables circumcisions to be performed just

    as aseptically, at home, on the roadsides or out there in the bush, as in an operating theater. These problems are prevented because the surgery performed by this device is of non-invasive type.

THE INVENTION

    This is a pre-sterilized disposable device and is meant for Single Use only. It is of unitary construction and does not require to be assembled before use, so that even a para-medic can use it with ease, with minimal training.

    Based on a concept of non-invasive surgery ----- described for the first time ever, in surgical history (confirmed by The Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland ) ----- by the inventor himself, this device does not create an open wound. Hence it does not require any sutures, ligatures or bandages.

    Summary

; World Wide patent protection until year 2010 or later.

    ; Tara KLamp is designed for Single use only.

    ; Tara KLamp is a direct replacement to current method of circumcision.

    ; Tara KLamp device can be used for infant and adult -- All Sizes.

    ; Tara KLamp is a time saving device for circumcision as compare to other methods. ; Tara KLamp is invented by a doctor who has done many circumcisions in his

    medical career.

    ; Tara KLamp has been certified to conform to Islamic religious circumcision by the

    Prime Minister’s Department in Malaysia.

    Conclusion

    The use of Tara KLamp can be encouraged on a national scale as part of the primary health care program of a country as this method is practical and inexpensive. As it addresses problems such as bleeding, infections e.g. Hepatitis, HIV etc. and deaths associated with circumcision, it has enormous implication in circumcision surgery, both to individuals and nations throughout the world.

    Circumcision Procedure

    using the Tara KLamp Disposable Non-invasive Circumcision Device

    The penis is first cleansed with sterilizing fluids. Use surgical marking pen to mark the level on the skin of the prepuce where the circumcision is to be performed. This is the level where the clamp is to be applied. This prevents too much pulling of the prepuce and

    thus avoids removal of too much tissue.

    Gently retract the prepuce. Free any adhesions, if they are present.

As shown, apply Vaseline:-

    a) to the inner and outer surfaces of the lower

    end of the tubular part and

    b) to the inner and upper part of the ring.

    This prevents the tissue from sticking to the device over the next few days.

    Place the tubular part of the clamp over the glans, so that the glans is covered by the tube.

    The prepuce is now pulled over the rim of the tube. Adjust the prepuce over the tube so that the level which has been marked earlier is just above the rim of the tube.

    After adjusting the level of the prepuce, hold the prepuce firmly with the fingers.

    A grip-like pressure is applied on the two arms. As this pressure is increased, the two arms are brought closer to the locking mechanisms on the tube.

    Resistance to further movement of the arms is felt when the arms come in contact with the locking mechanisms on the device. Apply further pressure on the arms until two clicks are heard and felt. This means that the arms are already locked and the necessary occlusion has been obtained.

    With the tissue cutter provided, the prepuce that is distal to the clamping ring is cut away at the angle between the tube and the clamping ring.

    Although there is no bleeding, the tube is cleaned with a clean gauze and ointment is applied at the cut edge. Apply the ointment a few times daily, during the next few days. The device is allowed to remain on the penis for the next few days. Urine is easily voided through the distal opening.

Subject: Circumcision Surgery : A safe and easy method by non-invasive

     means

    Circumcision is one of the most commonly performed surgeries all over the world. Techniques or methods in circumcision surgery vary in different regions and in different cultures and as a result, many problems e.g. infections, accidental amputations of the glans penis, bleeding etc. still continue to persist.

    As a compelling need to address these problems was felt, a research effort on circumcision surgery was initiated on two fronts in Malaysia, over two decades ago. Initially, a study in depth, to look into the current state of circumcision surgery, was undertaken. This was to study :

    A. The surgical aspects of all known circumcision procedures

    B. Whether the various problems could be prevented by another surgical technique.

    Interestingly, the above study revealed that a potentially safer and aseptic circumcision could be attainable, if the surgery was performed by using the body’s ability to reject

    non-viable tissues by non-invasive means. This was however, hampered by lack of any established knowledge or information in general surgery, on absolute non-invasive

    surgical techniques, that could be used. A further effort was then directed to explore this possibility as follows:

    A. To describe a safe concept for non-invasive surgery based on sound surgical

    reasoning,

    B. To design a circumcision device based on this concept.

    As a result, use is made of the ability of the body to reject non-viable tissue, as a clinical tool. The procedure for successful use of this ability, which I term as CLINICALLY

    INDUCED, COMPLETE AND TOTAL NON-INVASIVE ASEPTIC OCCLUSION

    is dependent on the concomitant use of a number of factors which do not involve the use of any invasive means or substances.
