Glycine (Glycine irrigation solution) is indicated as irrigating fluid of choice in:

  • • Bladder irrigation during urological surgery
  • • Endoscopic procedure within the urinary tract
  • • Transurethral resection of prostate
  • • Urinary bladder surgery

Dosage & Administration

The total volume of solution used for irrigation depends on the judgment of the attending surgeon. Height from the operating table of 60 cm (approx.2ft) is likely to cause increased intravascular absorption of glycine. Administration Procedure:

  • 1. Check infusion set and infusion solution prior to use
  • 2. Pull moderately to tear off the protective cover of the Eurohead
  • 3. Hold lightly the Eurohead but not the bag
  • 4. Open the flow regulator fully and hold the giving set on the top white area, but not the membrane venting region
  • 5. Insert the spike of the administration set to the Eurohead and fit the connector of the administration set firmly to the needle
  • 6. Gradually allow the fluid to flow down to the needle tip and close
  • 7. Remove the protective cover of the needle
  • 8. Locate the veinpuncture site and clean the site with an antiseptic solution, and then insert the needle
  • 9. Securely tape the puncture site
  • 10. Securely tape the wings and tubing
  • 11. Start infusion while adjusting drip speed


Patients with cardiovascular disease should be evaluated after transurethral resection of prostate using glycine. Care should be exercised if the liver or kidney is impaired. Aseptic technique is essential while using glycine. Unused portion should be discarded. Do not use if the bag is leaking, solution is cloudy, contains particles or after expiry date
