Bladder rupture in premature infant during voiding cystourethrography

Urology. 2005 Aug;66(2):432. doi: 10.1016/j.urology.2005.02.016.


We report what we believe to be the youngest patient with bladder rupture during voiding cystourethrography. If voiding cystourethrography needs to be done in a premature infant, the filling pressures should be minimized, multiple filling cycles should be avoided, and the voiding pressures should be minimized by using a small, balloon-less catheter.
