Худяев А.Т., Прудникова О.Г., Савин Д.М.


The article deals with a rare complication developed during bladder catheterization with Foley permanent soft (rubber) catheter for sharp urine retention in the acute period of traumatic spinal cord disease. The difficulty of clinical diagnosis is caused by the disorder of conducting function of the spinal cord after its injury. Ureteral orifice occlusion occurred after the manipulation led to renal carbunculosis and required nephrectomy performance.
