The urologist is frequently called upon to remove a nondeflating Foley catheter. The basic strategies to accomplish removal involve relieving obstruction of the blocked balloon port channel, dissolving the rubber balloon chemically or rupturing the balloon percutaneously. A less invasive technique of balloon rupture in the female patient, using a peri-catheter urethral route, is described.
