BURDIZZO BLOODLESS CASTRATION PLIERS BIZARRE
Burdizzo Castration Pliers
ia a very heavy, manufactured in US in mid 50-ties from forged steel castration device which employs a large clamp designed to
break the blood vessels
leading into the testicles. Once the blood supply to
the testicles is lost, testicular necrosis. occurs, and the testicles shrink, soften,
and eventually deteriorate completely. When the device is used the operator
crushes the spermatic cords one at a time, leaving a space in between in order
to maintain uninterrupted blood-flow to the scrotum
The Burdizzo is used
primarily on farm animals such as cattle and sheepFor example, pampered cattle, used for Kobe beef, are often castrated by
this method because of the reduced risk of bleeding and infection.
Burdizzos have also been used bysome human males as a means of self-castration, often by those seeking a remedy
for a high sex drive, or those who, for
religious or personal reasons, seek to become eunuchs.
The Burdizzo has also been used by some transsexual women and other male-to-female transgender
persons, as an
alternative to the surgical procedure known as an orchidectomy. Because
an incision is not required,
castration byBurdizzo is usually bloodless and, according to some
research, has a lower risk of infection, compared with traditional methods.
However, because the
burdizzo was not originally designed for human use, and because fairly little
research has been done on burdizzo castrations in humans, many physicians and
others do not consider the burdizzo to be a safe castration method for humans.
While the risks of blood loss and infection are low, anesthesia is a must, as
the burdizzo causes blunt force causing trauma to the spermatic cords, which
are thickly wrapped in nerve fibers.
