OBJECTIVE To determine the efficacy of intracorpus spongiosum anaesthesia during minor procedures on the glans and anterior urethra in the outpatient clinic. METHODS Sixty-nine consecutive male patients underwent various procedures on the glans penis or anterior urethra under intracorpus spongiosum anaesthesia, which was performed by injection of 3 mL of 1% lidocaine into the glans penis. The effect of this anaesthetic technique was assessed by questionnaire using a pain scale. RESULTS… 
The safety and efficacy of optical urethrotomy using a spongiosum block with sedation: a comparative nonrandomized study.
Optical urethrotomy using a spongiosum block with sedation is as safe and effective as using regional or general anesthesia, particularly in patients who are more ill, and the shorter operative time in the local anesthesia group could also make it cost-effective.
A randomized controlled trial comparing combined spongiosum block and intraurethral lignocaine with intraurethral lignocaine alone in optical internal urethrotomy for urethral stricture.
Spongiosum block with intraurethral lignocaine has a better anesthetic effect than intraure thirdral lIGNocaine alone for performing optical internal urethrotomy in anterior urethral stricture patients.


Optical urethrotomy for anterior urethral stricture under a new local anesthesia: intracorpus spongiosum anesthesia.
Under intracorpus spongiosum anesthesia, optical urethrotomy can be routinely performed in an outpatient setting and is a safe, effective, simple, and inexpensive procedure for treatment of anterior urethral stricture.
Urethral meatotomy in the office using topical EMLA cream for anesthesia.
Urethral meatotomy in an office setting with EMLA cream for anesthesia is generally painless, well tolerated, successful and cost-effective versus operative meatotomy.
Urethral Meatal Dilatation Using Topical EMLA Cream for Anaesthesia
This is a useful technique for anaesthetizing children undergoing prolonged surgery and merits further investigation, according to the surgeon who has used this technique for 19 patients undergoing major ear surgery.
Transurethral urethrotomy under vision.
The technique for urethral strictures distal to the prostate and for vesical neck contractures is described and postoperative treatment is emphasized and discussed.
Randomised double blind trial of EMLA for the control of pain related to cryotherapy in the treatment of genital HPV lesions.
EMLA can provide efficacious topical anaesthesia before cryotherapy for the treatment of external genital HPV in the outpatient setting and report significantly lower scores than those in the control group.
Direct vision internal urethrotomy using topical anesthesia.
A consecutive series of 18 patients underwent attempted direct vision internal urethrotomy (DVIU) under topical lidocaine anesthesia, and 12 of 15 patients reported either minimal or no discomfort.
Transurethral urethrotomy under vision
This work presents a new surgical procedure for the treatment of urethral strictures with the Sachse urethrotome, which is less painful than blind internal ureth rotomy and less extensive cases can be done in the office with the patient under local anesthesia.
Eutectic mixture of local anesthetics (EMLA): what is it? What does it do?
EMLA cream contains a eutectic mixture of local anesthetics, lidocaine and prilocaine, suspended within an oil-in-water emulsion, which stimulates the transdermal spread of the active ingredients.
The use of the diode laser for treating urethral strictures
Evaluation of the efficacy of the diode laser as a new tool for treating urethral strictures and its applications in medicine and surgery is evaluated.
