Bladder herniation after transpubic urethroplasty

J Urol 1983; 130: 778-780.
We report 2 cases of bladder hernia following repair of complex posterior urethral strictures by transpubic bulbo-prostatic anastomosis and omentoplasty. One patient was treated successfully by repair of the defect with a synthetic mesh. The presence of concomitant pubic diastasis is thought to be a contributing factor, as well as the use of omentum to fill the dead space.
