Abstract

Priapism following neuraxial anesthesia or general anesthesia is a rare but problematic event which may result in delay, complication or even cancellation of scheduled operations in urological endoscopic procedures. We present a case of successful management of intra operative priapism in a 32 years old male under spinal anesthesia posted for Ureteroscopic Lithotripsy (URSL) of bilateral ureteric stone. Different therapies for management of intra operative priapism have been quoted in the past like intracorporeal injection of vasopressors, dorsal penile nerve block, intravenous glycopyrrolate, intravenous ketamine/dexmedetomidine etc. In this case we treated with intravenous glycopyrrolate and intracorporeal injection of ultra low dose phenylephrine.

Keywords: Priapism, Spinal anesthesia, Phenylephrine, Glycopyrrolate.
