The p-values reflect only the signicance of difference between the two operations. As usual, the authors are only concerned which operation is "better", not whether it should be done at all.
As a consequence of the discussion on whether the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks and the discrepancies in reported figures of complications, we evaluated our results from a paediatric surgical department. Patient file data from children who had undergone ritual circumcision in the period were retrieved.
Complications recorded until December were noted.
Circumcision in boys aged from 3 weeks to 16 years median five years were evaluated. A total of 16 boys 5. Acute complications included two superficial skin infections one week postoperatively and five cases with prolonged stay or re-admissions for bleeding the first or second postoperative day, whereof two underwent operative treatment.
Finally, two had anaesthesiological complications leading to a need for overnight surveillance, but no further treatment. Parents should be counselled and be required to provide informed consent that any health benefits of childhood circumcision do not outweigh the reported complication rate and that therefore they should weigh the health benefits against the risks in light of their religious, cultural and personal preferences.
Currently, the American College of OB-GYN ACOG have no paramenters for training learning and performing neonatal circumcision, managing complications of residents, who then go out and continue this practice. In my practice, as a pediatric urologist, I manage the complications of neonatal circumcision.
For example, in a two year period, I was referred newborns and toddlers with complications of neonatal circumcision.
None of these were 'revisions' because of appearance, which I do not do. Complications of this unnecessary procedure are often not reported, but of pediatric urologists in this country who have practices similar to mine Fortunately, neonatal circumcision is on the decline as parents become educated Until the time that the USA falls in step with the rest of the planet who does not submit newborns to neonatal circumcision, ACOG should assure that the training of obstetricians to perform this procedure is adequate, particularly in avoiding and managing complications of a procedure that is unnecessary, and that obstetricians learn to obtain proper informed consent from parents who have no idea of the problems that can ensue.

However, population-based estimates of MC-associated adverse events AEs are lacking. The word "meatal" does not occur in the text of the study, only in one of the references, which is then ignored. We used to data from SDI Health, a large administrative claims data set, to conduct a retrospective cohort study.
We compared the incidence risk ratio and the incidence rate difference for circumcised vs uncircumcised newborn males and for males circumcised at younger than 1 year, age 1 to 9 years, or 10 years or older. Room for a fudge-factor here - they can just say the significance is "not enough" over one and ignore the risk.
Garbage in still means garbage out, just more of it.
The incidence of total MC AEs was slightly less than 0.Before, we didn't know how to control pregnancy, we didn't have the education, and people in the area were having nine or ten children. We have 18 families and no one has more than three children.

Imagery - the author’s attempt to create a mental picture (or reference point) in the mind of the reader.
