Dysuria, hematuria and inability to void related to traumatic Foley catheter removal without prior balloon deflation
Retrograde urethrogram shows rupture of the urethra at the level between the penile and bulbous urethras, opacification of the corpus spongiosum, extravasation into periurethral tissue (rupture of the membranous urethra with intact urogenital diaphragm) and stricture of the prostatic urethra . The transurethrally injected contrast medium extravasates into adjacent tissues and intravasates into pelvic veins.
