NCT01565512

  Purpose

The indwelling urethral foley is a major source of discomfort following radical prostatectomy. Our hypothesis is that intra-operative dorsal penile nerve block with bupivacaine may decrease immediate post-operative foley discomfort.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Prevalence of pain/discomfort [ Time Frame: postoperative ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: November 2011
Study Completion Date: July 2014
Primary Completion Date: July 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: saline injection
saline injection
Drug: Saline
A total of 20 mL on injectable saline(0.9% NS) administered once by subcutaneous injection while patient is under general anesthesia at end of operation.
Active Comparator: Bupivacaine injection
penile block with bupivacaine
Drug: Bupivacaine
A total of 100 mg bupivacaine (20 mL of 5 mg/mL solution) administered once by subcutaneous injection while patient is under general anesthesia at end of operation.

Detailed Description:

Patients undergoing robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) will be randomized in a double-blind placebo controlled manner to undergo penile ring block injection at the time of skin incision closure. A visual analog scale (VAS) based questionnaire including newly developed foley discomfort scores will be administered at various time points post-operatively.
