  • 34 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


Inguinal and pelvic surgeries are rarely complicated by urologic complications. Eleven cases having such history admitted to our department with urologic symptoms were shown to have microscopic hematuria and bladder lesions as well. All of them were explored some due to retained gauze compress some due to suspected malignant formations on computerized tomography. Furthermore all were shown to be benign in nature. The cases were discussed under scope of current literature.
