Urologic Emergencies: Paraphimosis Abstract. Paraphimosis presents a rare but acute urological emergency whereby the foreskin becomes entrapped behind the coronary sulcus of the penis. Therapy is quick and feasible, even in an outpatient setting. In most cases compression of the preputial edema and subsequent reposition of the prepuce is sufficient. Rarely, surgical intervention in form of a dorsal incision of the constriction is required. With partial or full phimosis being the underlying condition, paraphimosis occurs predominantly in infants and toddlers. However, persistent or secondary phimosis can lead to paraphimosis in advanced age.
