Ischemia of the glans 24 hours after circumcision: A case report and therapeutic solution.

Urologia 2018 Nov 26;85(4):174-176. Epub 2018 Mar 26.

Department of Urology, Advanced Urotechnology Centre, IRCCS Istituto Auxologico Italiano, Milan, Italy.

Introduction:: Circumcision is a common surgical procedure, typically performed under local anesthesia and somehow also as outpatient clinic. Although complications are rare and most frequently related to the procedure itself, ischemia of the glans may occur as a major complication and can be related to local ischemia following dorsal penile nerve block.

Case Description:: We describe the case of a 33-year-old patient who underwent circumcision at our institution and, 24 h after the procedure, developed an acute ischemia of the glans; a re-intervention was performed in emergency setting to ensure a large, not-tightened circular suture under the glans, and low-molecular-weight heparin and antiplatelet therapy was introduced to achieve anti-coagulative/antiaggregant effects.
