Twisted fate of bladder catheters.

Author information

Department of Surgery, University Malaya Medical Centre, 50603 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

We report a case of a vesical calculus formed over a broken and retained supra-pubic catheter which to the best of our knowledge has yet to be reported, along with three other cases of bladder catheter knotting.
