Abstract

The following set of guidelines will investigate and provide evidence regarding the benefits of neonatal MC, its potential complications and the care of the normal foreskin in early childhood, adapted for the Canadian population and healthcare system. A more comprehensive version of this guideline describing the detailed evidence to support the proposed recommendations and including sections on MC trends, indications of pediatric MC, cost analyses, and training implications is provided in the online version of this guideline (available at cuaj.ca). The evidence presented is classified according to the Oxford system of evidence-based medicine, with a summary using the GRADE system.
