Urinoma following prostatectomy

Case contributed by Dr Chris O'Donnell


Recent prostatectomy with clear fluid leaking from the abdominal wound

Patient Data

Age: 75
Gender: Male

Plain CT followed by CT cystogram (dilute contrast injected via the urethral catheter)

Large fluid collections sitting in front of and behind the bladder.  Bladder is collapsed with a urethral catheter in situ (and balloon in lumen).   Contrast injected into the urethral catheter fills the bladder (extrinsically compressed by the collections) and leaks posteriorly into these collections via a defect in the prostatectomy cavity at the bladder base (thus these collections are urinomas).
