Migration of urolift clip into the bladder causing haematuria 3-years after insertion: a rare delayed complication of prostatic urolift

Urology & Nephrology Open Access Journal
Biswas Krishnendu, Pillai Rajiv


Prostatic UroLift placement as a minimally invasive technique for the treatment of bladder outlet obstruction due to benign enlargement of prostate has been well accepted in literature and is practised with minimal post-operative complications. We present an unusual cause of haematuria due to migration of one of the prostatic UroLift clips into the bladder after 3 years from its insertion and its subsequent endourological management. To our knowledge, delayed migration of UroLift clip causing haematuria has not been reported in literature in the past. Urologists should be aware of this possible situation while dealing with patients with UroLift implanted.
