In our opinion, to spare the normal physiology of the urethra from injury during HoLEP due to large-diameter resectoscope, precalibrating the urethra before transurethral prostate surgery could minimize urethral mechanical injury, because meticulously dilating the urethra starting with an 18 Fr and progressing to a 28 Fr urethrotome reduces urethral injury compared to the solitary insertion of a 26 Fr resectoscope into the urethra.
Ultrasound scanning used for measurement of bladder volume instead of catheterization in post-operative urinary dysfunction could protect patients from discomfort and urethral injury, thereby decreasing medical expenses.
Most commonly associated injury was urinary bladder and urethral injury in 45 (34.7%) cases followed by solid organ injury (SOI) in 35 (26.9%), chest trauma with rib fractures in 24 (18.5%), haemodynamic instability in 19 (14.6%), lung contusion in 15 (11.5%) cases and other injuries observed were acetabular fracture, femur fracture, head injury and facial bone fractures.
Among them, sixty- two cases (29.81%) were kidney injuries, two cases (0.96%) were ureteral injury, six patients (2.88%) were bladder injury, 92 cases (44.23%) were urethral injury, 24 cases (11.54%) were penile injuries and 22 cases (10.58%) presented with injury to the scrotum/testiculus.
Therefore, we try to use home-made devices to simulate gun shooting and we have established animal models for urethral injury [Table 1].{Table 1}
Collectively, these studies indicate that training for Coude catheter placement decreases the incidence of urethral injury and is an appropriate procedure for specifically trained providers (Canales et al., 2009; Kashefi et al., 2008; Thomas, Giri, Meagher, & Creagh, 2009).
The process basically lifts the vaginal skin away from the urethra itself, not only creating hemostasis but also providing a zone of safety to help avoid a urethral injury.
(14) In that case, the heterotopic penile ossification was attributed to a blunt urethral injury sustained during intercourse.
(10) reported only one case of full-blown transurethral resection syndrome, which occurred presumably because of absorption of sterile water through the urethral injury induced during insertion of the laser cystoscope.
Cystography showed extraperitoneal extravasation of contrast, while retrograde pyelography showed a concurrent urethral injury causing the unilateral hydronephrosis.
