  • TECHNICAL CONSIDERATIONS CASE REPORT A 65-year-old man with a 10-year history of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and peripheral vascular disease was hospitalized with a recurrent urinary tract infection.[kundoc.com]
Soft Tissue Mass
  • It facilitates the better planning for an intervention. 16,17 The signs most common in the presence of a fistula are air inside the bladder (90%), focal thickening of the bladder wall (90%), and/or of the adjacent intestinal wall (85%), extraluminal soft-tissue[jebmh.com]

Retrograde Ejaculation
  • In our case, the cause that led to the investigation of the patient was symptoms similar to retrograde ejaculation after masturbation, which is a rather rare manifestation of urethrorectal fistula.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Urethrorectal fistulas are rare, and several open operative approaches and techniques have been used in treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • INTERVENTION: All patients initially received both a urinary and a bowel diversion as the first step of the treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Previously reported embryologic explanations, a detailed approach for surgical management and an alternative treatment are discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Conservative treatments had failed in all cases. The time from the diagnosis of urethrorectal fistula to surgery was 4 weeks to 4 years. RESULTSFive men underwent excision and closure of a urethrorectal fistula with diverting colostomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • A high index of clinical suspicion for a UIAF is paramount to the diagnosis and can have a significant impact on prognosis.[academic.oup.com]
  • The prognosis depends not only on the associated cardiac or renal anomalies but also on the location of the urethral opening [2].[jpss.eu]
  • Treatment and prognosis The extensive list of creative operative procedures used for the rectal atresia reflects the great difficulty faced in treating this anomaly.[panafrican-med-journal.com]
  • Skoog and Belman proposed a classification system for penile agenesis where it has been emphasized that the position of the urethral opening has a bearing on the prognosis.[sjkdt.org]
  • The pre-treatment scan is a key point in the treatment of these patients and conditions the prognosis. Disclosure of interest The authors declare that they have no conflicts of interest concerning this article.[em-consulte.com]


  • Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.[icd10coded.com]
  • The etiology was surgical (radical prostatectomy) in 3 cases, traumatic in 1 and idiopathic in 1. All 5 patients had urinary tract infection and pneumaturia, and 3 (60%) had watery stool. Conservative treatments had failed in all cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • PURPOSE: Urethrorectal fistulas are rare, and the etiology is usually traumatic or iatrogenic (postoperative).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
