Relationship between premature ejaculation and postcircumcisional mucosal cuff length.


OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to investigate the effect of circumcision conditions on postcircumcisional mucosal cuff length (MCL), and to determine the relationship between premature ejaculation (PE) and MCL. MATERIAL AND METHODS Circumcision histories and penile measurements were taken for 200 circumcised men. They were asked to complete the Premature Ejaculation Diagnostic Tool (PEDT) questionnaire, and to measure and report intravaginal ejaculation latency time (IELT). RESULTS The mean age of all participants was 35.1 ± 8.5 (19-46) years. The mean MCL, penile skin length and total penile length of all participants were 14.6 ± 3.4 mm, 122 ± 11.8 mm and 136.6 ± 13.9 mm, respectively. Mean age at circumcision was 6.5 ± 5.8 years. Only 26 (13%) of the participants had been circumcised by a surgeon, and they had significantly shorter MCL than those who had been circumcised by others (p = 0.041). All 200 men enrolled in the study completed a PEDT, but only 141 of them measured correctly and reported their IELT. The mean PEDT score was 5.6 ± 5.9 and IELT was 3.8 ± 1.9 min. There was a strong and a negative correlation between PEDT scores and IELT (p = 0.000, and r = -0.785), but no correlation was shown between the mean penile measurements and PEDT and IELT scores of volunteers (p > 0.05). CONCLUSIONS Although the MCL did not change according to the place where it was performed, it was shorter in patients who had been circumcised by surgeons. The study results also demonstrated that there was no relationship between MCL or penile length and PE in terms of PEDT score and IELT in circumcised men.
