Özet

An ultrasound-guided dorsal penile nerve (DPN) block was performed for postoperative analgesia in a 6-year-old, 19 kg, American Society of Anesthesiologists class II patient undergoing hypospadias surgery. The block was applied following the induction of general anesthesia. Anesthesia maintenance was provided with sevoflurane 2% in a 1:2 ratio of oxygen and nitrous oxide. The DPN block was performed using 0.2 mL/kg of 0.25% bupivacaine. Almost 24 hours of analgesia was provided following surgery.
