Neonatal Bladder Perforation from Routine Catheterization

Neonatal Bladder Perforation from Routine Catheterization Neonatal bladder perforation from urinary catheterization is a rare complication, with few reported cases in the literature. The complication often requires immediate surgical repair, so a high index of suspicion is required to make an early diagnosis. Neonates present with ascites, oliguria and acute renal failure with hyponatremia and hyperkalemia. The diagnosis can be confirmed by voiding cystourethrogram. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Current Urology Karger

Abstract

Neonatal bladder perforation from urinary catheterization is a rare complication, with few reported cases in the literature. The complication often requires immediate surgical repair, so a high index of suspicion is required to make an early diagnosis. Neonates present with ascites, oliguria and acute renal failure with hyponatremia and hyperkalemia. The diagnosis can be confirmed by voiding cystourethrogram.
