Abstract

  • We present a case of small intestine injury resulting from suprapubic catheter insertion. This case is of particular interest for three reasons. Firstly, the presentation of the injury was delayed by three months, until the time of the first catheter exchange. Secondly, the injury was managed conservatively, without surgical exploration. Finally, the injury occurred using a newer, Seldinger-type suprapubic catheter insertion kit.
