Abstract BACKGROUND: Penile incarceration or strangulation is a urologic emergency. OBJECTIVES: Several techniques to remove metallic objects strangulating the penis are described in the literature. The method utilized depends on the severity of the incarceration and the tools that are readily accessible. Prompt action and resourcefulness, with expeditious removal, prevents organ ischemia and vascular or mechanical sequelae. CASE REPORT: We describe a case in which a Dremel Moto-Tool was used to remove a lead pipe strangulating a penile shaft, after failure of the string technique. CONCLUSION: A hospital-based Emergency Medical Services and Rescue program is a valuable resource to provide the tools needed for management of penile strangulation. Features of safe removal, including protecting the tissues from heat damage and mechanical injury from the cutting blade, are described. Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
