Spontaneous knotting of foley’s catheter in urinary bladder: A case report

Author(s): Dr. Siddharth Nigam and Dr. VK Nigam
Abstract: We are presenting a case of spontaneous knotting of Foley’s catheter in a 64 year old male. Suprapubic ultrasonographic-guided puncture of balloon of Foley’s catheter was done under local anaesthesia. Knotted Foley’s catheter was gently removed after pushing anaesthetic jelly in urethra by the side of Foley’s catheter. Mild but sustained traction helped the removal of the Foley’s catheter without causing any injury to the urethra. Though the spontaneous knotting of Foley’s catheter is a rare incidence but it occurs and that’s why whoever inserts Foley’s catheter per urethra in urinary bladder must keep in mind spontaneous knotting.
