The suprapubic catheter enters through the anterior abdominal. It courses inferiorly through the bladder and enters the urethral opening. It passes through the prostatic urethra. Just inferior to this, the balloon is inflated within the lumen of the penile urethra. The balloon has a volume of approximately 5ml.
This is an uncommon complication of a suprapubic catheter.
