Abstract

We report a case of polyps in a urinary continent catheterizable channel that were endoscopically resected with the holmium laser. An 11-year-old boy underwent lower urinary tract reconstruction, along with a continent catheterizable channel. Due to persistent problems catheterizing, he underwent an endoscopy which revealed multiple broad-based polyps in his channel. These polyps were resected completely with the holmium laser without complication. The polyps were benign on final pathological examination. Follow-up endoscopy 4 weeks later revealed a healthy channel with no residual polyps. The patient has had no difficulties catheterizing in the interim. To our knowledge, this is the only report published of using the holmium laser to resect polyps in a urinary catheterizable channel.
