Abstract

A 70-year old female patient presented with intractable lower abdominal pain and recurrent urinary tract infection following an endoscopic bladder neck suspension. Investigations revealed it to be a case of suture and pledget migration leading to foreign body granuloma in urinary bladder. It is being reported as an uncommon complication of endoscopic bladder neck suspension. An early endoscopic evaluation should be carried out in cases of unexplained lower urinary tract symptoms following any surgical procedure for incontinence. It is also appropriate to retrieve these foreign bodies endourologically without resorting to open surgery and thus extending safe, comfortable, and short postoperative course with good long term results.
