Perineal Pseudoaneurysm from Traumatic Foley Removal Leads to Recurrent Life-Threatening Hematuria

Abstract

Hematuria resulting from urethral traumatic catheter insertion and removal is often encountered. Usually, hematuria resolves with conservative measures. We report a case of traumatic Foley removal leading to intermittent life-threatening hematuria resulting in blood loss anemia requiring multiple transfusions and multiple episodes of hypotension requiring pressors. A pelvic angiogram revealed a pseudoaneurysm of the left pudendal artery, which was treated with microcoil embolization leading to resolution of bleeding.
