ABSTRACTObjective: A case of urinary ascites following a bladder injury during laparoscopic myomectomy, and its resolution.
Clinical case: 42-year-old woman referred for urologic consultation for acute urinary retention 11 days after myomectomy.
Results: Ultrasound showed abdominal ascites. Cystoscopy gave evidence of one-centimeter bladder dome injury. During retrograde cystography contrast material leaked out through the bladder.
Conclusion: Early treatment with drainage of urinary ascites and bladder injury surgical repair had excellent results.
