Abstract

The urinary bladder is the most common site of foreign bodies in the genitourinary tract. The incidence of admissions related to this appears to be increasing, which may be partly due to an increase in the practice of urethral sounding for sexual gratification. Herein, a 29 year-old lady who was using a urethral sound for sexual arousal when it slipped and migrated into the bladder. We describe a technique that can be used to retrieve cylindrical foreign bodies from the bladder using an Endoloop through a rigid cystoscope, which has been found to be relatively atraumatic and easy to perform.
