What is Phimostop?

Phimostop is a medical device designed to get the patient back to how they were before developing phimosis, without the need for circumcision surgery. Phimostop can also be purchased in pharmacies without a prescription. It is validated by the Ministry of Health and the subject of clinical research at the Tor Vergata University of Rome.

How does it work

Phimostop exploits the natural tendency of epidermal tissue to adapt, if subjected to prolonged, gentle, minimal and progressive dilating pressures. Phimostop acts through a series of progressive tuboids in soft hypoallergenic medical-grade silicone, anatomically shaped and free of side effects. By wearing the tuboids on the glans, without using excessive force and progressively replacing them, the scar ring is weakened and thinned, allowing for the growth of new elastic cells which replace the stiffened tissue in a short timeframe. The process is complete when the foreskin is able to descend to the base of the glans without squeezing it and moves freely, even when the penis is erect.

Instructions for use

Choose the tuboid suitable for your phimosis; this must be worn on the glans without applying excessive force or causing pain.

Clean your hands, the tuboids, the foreskin and the glans before use. Moisten the tuboid and the foreskin to facilitate the insertion of the tuboid and, if necessary, lubricate the opening of the foreskin with a lubricating cream (be careful not to lubricate the outer part of the foreskin).

Tube insertion 1-9:

  • Lower the foreskin as far as possible (without forcing it)
  • Insert a corner of the protruding base of the tuboid into the foreskin
  • Rotate the tuboid thus inserting the entire base
  • With your thumb and forefinger, pull up the skin (inner and outer) of the foreskin

Tube insertion 9-22:

  • Lower the foreskin as far as possible (without forcing it)
  • Place the tuboid base on the glans
  • With your thumb and forefinger, pull up the skin (inner and outer) of the foreskin

Secure the tuboid to the penis by lowering the tabs and applying the tape patch – cut to size – to each side of the foreskin.

Keep each tuboid on for at least 48 hrs, until the first stage of correction of the phimosis is detected, allowing you to move on to the next tuboid (see Usage timescales). If the insertion of the higher calibre tuboid causes pain, it will be necessary to return to using the previous tuboid for at least another 48 hrs.

Usage timescales

It is not possible to give an accurate estimate of the time required to complete treatment with Phimostop as each phimosis is different, due to the many factors that affect the timing of treatment, such as age, severity of phimosis (tight, non-tight) and the type of phimosis (congenital, acquired). Below is an estimate of the average usage timescales for each degree of phimosis.

Mild and moderate acquired phimosis (grade 1, 2 and 3 according to Kikiros et al.)

  • Wear the tuboid for at least 12 hours a day
  • Wear the tuboid for at least 48 hours before trying to move on to the next one

Severe acquired phimosis (grade 4 and 5 according to Kikiros et al.)

  • Wear the tuboid for at least 18 hours a day
  • Wear the tuboid for at least 72/96 hours before trying to move on to the next one

Mild and moderate congenital phimosis (grade 1, 2 and 3 according to Kikiros et al.)

  • Wear the tuboid for at least 18 hours a day
  • Wear the tuboid for at least 48/72 hours before trying to move on to the next one

Severe congenital phimosis (grade 4 and 5 according to Kikiros et al.)

  • Wear the tuboid for at least 18 hours a day
  • Wear the tuboid for at least 96 hours before trying to move on to the next one
