OBJECTIVE To present our 8 year experience in the prevention of the obturator nerve reflex during transurethral resection of bladder tumors. METHODS This study was performed in Ataturk University Hospital between 1999 and 2007. We retrospectively reviewed the records of 89 patients with inferolateral bladder tumors, who underwent transurethral resection under epidural or general anesthesia and requested obturator nerve reflex inhibition. Epidural anesthesia was administered to 57 patients…

Transvesical blockade of the obturator nerve to prevent adductor contraction in transurethral bladder surgery.
TLDR
Local blockade of the obturator nerve during cystoscopy is an effective method to avoid its stimulation in TURBT.
Is Obturator Nerve Block Effective as Spinal Anesthesia in Preventing Adductor Spasms in General Anesthesia Without Muscle Relaxants?
TLDR
General anesthesia without muscle relaxant combined with ONB was found effective to prevent adductor muscle spasms as the spinal anesthesia in TUR-BT operations, and surgical complications can be reduced via general anesthesia without the muscle Relaxant method, although surgeons' satisfaction did not alter.
A comparison between blind and nerve stimulation guided obturator nerve block in transurethral resection of bladder tumor.
TLDR
Transvesical ONB is a safe and effective method of ONB before TURBT that is feasible by urologists and promising even without nerve stimulation and only by anatomic landmarks.
Role of Obturator Nerve Block in Turbt Dr
TLDR
Oturator nerve block with spinal anesthesia is a better option for TURBT than using Spinal anesthesia alone.
Obturator nerve block transurethral surgery for bladder cancer: comparison of inguinal and intravesical approaches: prospective randomized trial
TLDR
The data suggests that identification of the obturator nerve with ultrasound is easy and the block can be assessed by observing avoidance of bladder spasm, and plays an additive role on the quality of analgesia for bladder surgery.
Obturator Nerve Blockade vs. Neuromuscular Blockade for the Prevention of Adductor Spasm in Patients Undergoing Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumors: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
TLDR
The data and experience suggest that the ONB is relatively easy to perform and should be considered in patients with posterolateral bladder tumors, and both techniques are safe and efficacious for preventing adductor spasm.
Classic versus Inguinal Approach for Obturator Nerve Block in Transurethral Resection of Bladder Cancer under Spinal Anesthesia: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Compared to the classic approach, the inguinal approach for ONB appeared to be an easily performable, effective block with a high success rate, rapid onset, and good patient and surgeon satisfaction.

  • 2015
TLDR
It is found that ONB performed after spinal anesthesia was effective in preventing intraoperative complications due to adductor muscle spasm while performing TURBT.
Avoiding the Obturator Jerk during TURBT
TLDR
TURBT is a relatively common urological operation performed to remove tumors of the bladder, and anesthetists should consider the use of neuromuscular blockade or an obturator nerve block to reduce the incidence of obturators jerk and risk of bladder perforation.
A nightmare during endoscopic bladder tumor resection; obturator reflex
TLDR
This review aimed to form a review to reduce difficult situations and to minimize the adverse consequences caused by this reflex that becomes a nightmare in many surgical cases.

Obturator nerve block and transurethral surgery for bladder cancer.
TLDR
ONB for the prevention of adductor spasms is a useful technique for the Prevention of deep and uncontrolled cuts in the dorso-lateral part of the bladder wall during TUR-BT.
Life‐threatening haemorrhage following obturator artery injury during transurethral bladder surgery: a sequel of an unsuccessful obturator nerve block
TLDR
In order to attain profound blockade of the motor neuron fibres of the obturator nerve and thereby prevent the thigh‐adductor muscle contraction which can lead to life‐threatening situations, it is recommended to use a larger volume of a higher concentration of local anaesthetic with a longer duration in the obTurator nerve block for the transurethral procedures.
[A report on 107 cases of obturator nerve block].
TLDR
Obesity index was positively correlated with the depth of the obturator nerve as well as the pubic tubercle, however, no correlation was found between the obesity index and the difference of the Depth of the Oburator nerve and the depthof the pubIC tubercle.
[Pubic tubercle side approach to the obturator nerve block].
TLDR
The pubic tubercle side approach of the obturator nerve was useful and without complications in comparison with the traditional approach and a smaller dose of local anesthetic was used in spite of the higher success rate.
Electrovaporization of the prostate with the Gyrus device.
TLDR
The preliminary results with a bipolar electrode for electrovaporization of the prostate using the Gyrus suggest that it is a useful and safe endoscopic device and appears to be an effective treatment for BPH.
Treatment of Bladder Tumors and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia with a New TUR System Using Physiological Saline as Perfusate
TLDR
This article presents a new transurethral resection (TUR) system for use in endoscopic surgery that is both significantly safer and more cost effective by using an electroconductive solution (physiological saline) as the perfusate in lieu of conventional non-electroconductives solution (Uromatic).
The obturator nerve block
TLDR
The authors describe the topographic relation of the bladder wall to the passage of the obturator nerve in the minor pelvis and the technique of obTurator nerve block by local anaesthesia, which is demonstrated in 21 patients.
Interadductor approach to obturator nerve block for transurethral resection procedure: comparison with traditional approach
TLDR
The interadductor approach can provide faster identification of the obturator nerve than the traditional approach in terms of the insertion-adduction contraction interval (ICI), success rate, completion of the block, and plasma lidocaine concentration.
