Abstract

Acute retention of urine is a urological emergency. Urethral catheterisation is occasionally not possible. Then suprapubic cystostomy remains the treatment of choice. The two different approaches practised are percutaneous push-in technique using a peel away sheath or the metal trocar and open surgical method. The existing percutaneous technique was modified by me to make it simple and cheap.
