An Illinois man suffering from dementia was hospitalized after binding his genitals with rubber bands until his penis began to rot.
“Strangulation cases like this are thankfully rare,” Dr. Fardod O’Kelly, a urological surgeon at Beacon Hospital in Dublin, Ireland, told the Daily Mail of the grisly case, which was reported in the medical journal Urology Case Reports.
The 81-year-old male had initially reported to the hospital after suffering from diabetic ketoacidosis — a potentially deadly reaction to low levels of insulin stemming from his uncontrollable diabetes. It was there that the Chicago native’s wife revealed that he’d wrapped his scrotum in rubber bands and refused to remove them for three days.
However, when asked about his testicular tourniquet, the man seemed confused.
Nonetheless, a subsequent examination revealed that the patient’s phallus was indeed severely swollen and had turned yellow and purple, signifying that it had begun to die.
Doctors deduced that the man’s unconventional hog ties had staunched the blood flow and damaged his member, which, when coupled with his poor circulation from his underlying diabetes, had resulted in “a necrotic or gangrenous state,” per the case study.
In order to prevent further degradation, doctors burned out the dead flesh with a hot wire and excised it with scalpels. They also inserted a catheter into the unfortunate soul’s urethra to drain the reservoir of urine that had pooled because the patient’s groin garrote had prevented him from peeing.
With the help of antibiotics, the patient recovered within five days. However, he failed to appear at his follow-up appointment two weeks later, according to the medical report.
Nonetheless, the phallic asphyxiation sufferer should thank his lucky stars as doctors projected that he could’ve lost his member had he left the “ball gag” on any longer, the Daily Mail reported.
“An organ like the penis could probably tolerate this for a couple of hours (if you don’t pass out with the pain), however eventually the pressure becomes too great and the arteries become compressed as well,” O’Kelly claimed. “This is important as the arterial compression means no blood flow in, and that means no oxygen supply, so the organ begins to die.”
The urologist added, “In theory, if you left it long enough the penis could fall off, but I’ve never seen that happen.”
This is unfortunately not the first case of phallic strangulation, a practice generally associated with psychiatric disorders and sexual deviancy. Last year, a Ukraine man had to be hospitalized after his wife fastened a “chastity nut” to his penis to stop him from sleeping around.
