Spontaneous extraperitoneal bladder perforation in an elderly patient with genitalia prolapse



Spontaneous extraperitoneal bladder perforation in an elderly patient with genitalia prolapse



Actas Urologicas Espanolas 32(4): 464-466



There are many etiologic reasons which explain the bladder perforation. Bladder injuries happen most commonly in poli-traumatisms (traffic accident), blunt trauma, penetrating injury and iatrogenic injury (surgery, laparoscopic...). However, there is not always a vigorous, direct, extern and blunt agent causing the rupture. In the case reported the extraperitoneal bladder rupture started after a smooth perineal injury caused when the patient seated down. The patient already suffered from a cystocele III/IV plus uterine prolapse for a long time ago.
