Laparoscopic repair of ruptured bladder by Dr. Iraniha
This is a 65 years old male who presented to the emergency room with abdominal pain and distention and his ct scan showed urinary obstruction due to enlarged prostate with extremely distended bladder. Initially the urinary obstruction was relived with insertion of a Foley catheter and patient was treated with antibiotics. In spite of medical treatment he got worse and a repeat ct scan showed dilated loops of small bowel consistent with bowel obstruction. Therefore, he underwent an emergency diagnostic laparoscopy and found to have significant infra-abdominal infection with peritonitis, multiple intra-abdominal abscesses and extensive adhesions causing small bowel obstruction due to ruptured bladder. This rare condition was due to significant bladder dissension and urinary infection secondary to enlarged prostate and urinary obstruction. The abscesses were drained, the adhesions were mobilized and bladder was repaired.
