The incidence of segmental testicular infarction (STI) is very low. Such a disorder most often affects young men. The most common symptom is sudden testicular pain. We report 6 cases of men diagnosed with STI. Clinical examination, blood test, urine analysis, and ultrasound examination with colour Doppler were performed. Furthermore, tissue sonoelastography or MRI was performed in selected patients. All men underwent surgical exploration. In all but one man, the affected testis was preserved. Although STI is a rare condition, it should be taken into account if testicular pain prior to suspicious ultrasound imaging occurs...

Chinese Shang Ring adult male circumcision (SC) is a safe and effective procedure which is easy to learn and to perform. By a specially designed small device, male circumcision (MC) can be performed in 5 min. Compared with conventional adult MC (CC), SC has shorter operation time, less blood loss, less pain score, higher appearance satisfaction rate, and lower complication rate. SC was first developed in China. As recent studies have demonstrated that MC reduced the risk of acquiring human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection via vaginal intercourse in African countries, SC was introduced into Africa to fight HIV...
