Abstract Penile strangulation is a rare injury that requires urgent management. Non-metallic, thin objects are easy to remove but can cause severe injury. Metallic objects are difficult to remove but the injuries are usually less severe. Penile ulceration and oedema in children may well indicate the presence of a strangulation object. We describe a new hammer and chisel method for removing such objects.
