Follow-up

There should be continuous flushing through a 3-way catheter for approximately 24 hours is done, depending on bleeding. If there is no ongoing bleeding, the catheter can be removed after 24 hours. When there is spontaneous voiding and residual urine < 50 ml, the patient can be discharged. If the patient had a urinary tract infection during the procedure, antibiotics should be given for one week based on a bacterial resistance test.

Complications

  • Per- and postoperative bleeding (frequent due to abundance of vessels in the tumor). Coagulated blood in the bladder must be evacuated.
  • Infections
  • Incontinence (rare, but can occur if tumor infiltrates down to the sphincter area)
