Abstract:   (1011 Views)
  • Very different objects have been reported as foreign bodies in the urinary bladder, which encompasses everything available in the environment, and each one presents a new challenge to urologists. Herein, we report the case of a 21-year-old male patient presented with lower urinary tract symptoms. Two months before his presentation, he had introduced a 110 cm soft electrical wire to his urethra, which migrated into the bladder. Although it has been said that most foreign bodies in the bladder could be endoscopically removed, an attempt to remove this wire by cystoscopy was unsuccessful, and suprapubic cystostomy was performed for the removal. Therefore, it is recommended to consider suprapubic cystostomy the choice of treatment instead of the endoscopic procedure in the case of long and knotted wires to avoid injuries to the urethra.
