Abstract

We describe 2 cases of delayed disruption of the vesicourethral anastomosis after radical retropubic prostatectomy. Diagnosis was established by fluoroscopic examination. Cystoscopic fixation of a catheter intravesically with suprapubic monofilament suture through the dome of the bladder proved to be the key to resolution of the problem.
