Melbourne: A group of surgeons in Taiwan have been studying the effects of electricity on penises by conducting the experiments on themselves.The researchers conducted the study, titled "Determination of Human Penile Electrical Resistance and Implication on Safety for Electrosurgery of Penis", to find out the effects electricity had on penises. Pioneered by Dr William T Bovie in 1914, it`s a relatively safe and hygienic method of cutting tissue using highly concentrated electric currents.According to News.com.au, Dr Vincent Tsai, from the Institute of Biomedical Engineering in Taiwan, said it is not uncommon for patients to choose electrosurgery for penis operations such as circumcisions and the removal of hypospadias.
"We would like to remind our colleagues that we should be careful when doing ES on patients`` penis," the Herald Sun quoted him as saying."Potential and subclinical injury to erectile tissue caused by electrosurgery on the penis cannot be underestimated," he added.He suggested surgeons consider using less power and for shorter lengths of time, or just switching to modern laser therapy.And despite the alarming potential, Dr Tsai said no penises were harmed during the course of the experiment.
