Abstract

© 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Injury to the penis resulting from zipper entrapment is a painful condition that presents a unique anesthetic challenge to the emergency physician and may even require procedural sedation for removal. In this case report, we describe successful removal of zipper entrapment from the penis of a 34-year-old patient after the application of an ultrasoundguided dorsal penile nerve block. We discuss the anatomy, sonographic features, and steps required for the nerve block procedure.
