The Use of Multiple Foley Balloon Catheters for Treating Life-Threatening Radiation Induced Hemorrhagic Cystitis


Wen Ming Chen, Hsien Chih Lin and Chuo Jung Tsai

Life-threatening hematuria from radiation induced hemorrhagic cystitis remains a difficult clinical problem for the urologists. We report the use of multiple inflated Foley balloon catheters for compression on the bleeding bladder mucosa via the suprapubic and urethral routes in a patient with hemorrhagic shock due to intractable bleeding of radiation induced hemorrhagic cystitis. This method is simple and quick to stop bladder bleeding for life saving.
