Urachal remnant perforation during umbilical vein catheterization in a newborn.

Abstract

Urachal remnants are uncommon congenital anomalies of the bladder that can be injured during attempted catheterization of an umbilical artery or vein. We present the case of a newborn boy who developed urinary ascites after undergoing an attempted umbilical vein catheterization. He subsequently underwent successful surgical repair of a perforated urachal remnant.
