An AP scout shows bilateral superior and inferior pubic rami fractures and a Foley catheter.
Contrast was then given through a pediatric feeding tube placed in the penile urethra next to the Foley catheter (pericatheter). The contrast administered outlines the anterior and posterior urethra around the Foley catheter. No leak of contrast.
Pericatheter urethrograms can be done to assess urethral patency while a Foley catheter is in place. It is often used after urethroplasty to decide whether or not a Foley catheter should be removed.
In this case, there was no leak of contrast and contrast outlined the Foley balloon in the urinary bladder. Thus the Foley catheter was safely removed.
