MAMANI ORTIZ, Yercin; MARTINEZ VERGARA, Jose Luis  and  CHOQUE ONTIVEROS, Maria del Carmen. LA CIRCUNCISIÓN MASCULINA COMO MECANISMO DE PREVENCIÓN DE LA TRANSMISION DEL VIH. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2009, vol.12, n.1, pp.39-44. ISSN 1817-7433.

The masculine circumcision aleatoriamente has been related to a minor risk of infections by the VIH in international studies of observation and in three clinical controlled tests(essays). The masculine circumcision also has related to a quantity of other benefits for the health.Though the masculine circumcision carries some risks, the serious complications are slightly common.Consequently, the masculine circumcision, together with other strategies of prevention, can play an important paper (role) in the prevention of the VIH in sites (places) similar to those of the clinical tests(essays).While the CDC continue with the creation of recommendations for the public health, the men in individual form can consider the circumcision to be an additional measure of prevention of the VIH. But it is necessary to to think that the circumcision carries risks and costs that must be born in mind close to the potential benefits; insertivas has turned out to be effective in the reduction of the risk of infection for the alone VIH in the sexual vaginal relations and offers only partial protection and must be considered only together with other verified measures of prevention (abstinence, mutual monogamy, limited (small) number of sexual pairs (couples) and suitable and constant use of condoms).

Keywords : HIV; circumcision; prevention.
