  • Penile incarceration is a rarely seen injury that requires urgent medical attention and may provide a challenge to even the most experienced emergency and urologic personnel. Described is a novel method of liberating the penis from a nonexpandable metal ring through a combination of multiple puncture wounds and manual compression after failure of other well-described techniques. Included is a treatment algorithm to guide progression of management options in difficult cases.
