New Study Finds Six Men Per Day Go To The Emergency Room Due To Zipper Injuries
Next time you just casually zip up your pants you better watch out for your private parts. A new study suggests that men end up going to the emergency room around six times a day due to zipper accidents. Writing that last sentence even made me say out loud “ouuuuucccchhh”.
A team of dedicated University of California, San Francisco urologists have just finished a new study that has been published over the past year with the main focus of accidents involving the genitals. They took a look at the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System, which is a sampling of U.S. hospital emergency departments. Researchers found that more than 142,000 adults went to the ER between 2002 and 2010 for these types of injuries.
Q: What were some of the more common injuries you found?
A: We found the number one cause for penile injuries in adults was actually a zipper. It wasn’t insignificant; almost 18,000 folks, both adults and children had showed up in the ER (between 2002 and 2010) with zip-related injuries. This is important for (physician) training because the next generation of doctors needs to know how to release the zipper from the penis. They need to learn mechanically how you unwedge it from the penis without damaging it.”
So next time you just zip up nice and fast, how about taking it a little easier there. You can read more about the study from 23 ABC News by Clicking Here.
