The "elaborate and extremely careful" rescue mission was performed using an angle grinder. A man had to have his penis freed from 13 metal sex rings by firefighters. The "elaborate and extremely careful" rescue mission took place when the year-old's fetish went wrong.
An angle grinder was used to cut the titanium-based ring off after medical staff failed to remove it with standard equipment, according to a report in the Irish Medical Journal. Metal rings can be used to increase sexual pleasure and performance. But former nurse and sexual health expert Samantha Evans said to be safe people should "always use a silicone constriction ring and only for 30 minutes".
Penile strangulation by metal ring is a rare urological emergency situation which requires urgent decompression of the penis to avoid adverse effect. But sometimes, cutting of the ring to decompress the penis safely is a very difficult task particularly when the strangulating object is a hard metal object as in our case. Here, we present a case which was managed by cutting in a novel way with the help of dental micromotor with wheel shape bur.
Dr George Lee, a columnist for The Star Online, said that if the ring is left on for more than six hours, the man could end up impotent due to damaged nerves and blood supply. Necrosis means cell death. Such were the risks involved for the man who on Saturday had to be rescued by the Fire and Rescue Department from a ball bearing device that was stuck on his penis for more than 12 hours.
The Dublin Fire Brigade unit were called to the emergency department at the Mater University Hospital after medics tried unsuccessfully to remove the ring. The medics had failed to remove the device, which measured 5cm x 4cm x 1. These included an orthopaedic saw, bolt and bone cutters which failed to grasp or even indent the device due to the durability and size of the ring.
A man had to be treated by firefighters after 'strangling' his penis by getting a metal ring stuck around it. The unidentified male reportedly applied the titanium penoscrotal constriction ring to his manhood during sex. However, the device became stuck at the base of his scrotum, causing his penis to swell and leaving him in pain. He was found to have "penile strangulation", a rare condition that requires urgent treatment to avoid long-term problems.
