Bladder perforation related to intrauterine device.


Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are currently one of the most popular reversible contraception methods used world wide. Uterine perforation is a rarely observed complication. The bladder is one of the organs that an IUD can migrate to because of its close proximity to the uterus. There are about 70 cases in the literature of IUDs that have migrated into the bladder. The resulting bladder perforation can be complete or partial. Here, we report 2 cases, 1 of complete migration and the other of partial migration.
