Background/aim: : Intraperitoneal urinary system perforation is a rare but serious complication of endoscopic urologic surgery. Percutaneous placement of a peritoneal drainage catheter is already mainly used for diagnostic purposes. We present our experience with percutaneous drainage catheters for conservative management of intraperitoneal urinary system perforations occurring during endoscopic urologic surgery with close monitorization in selected cases. Materials and methods: Urinary system perforations had developed in 21 (0.8%) of 2603 patients undergoing endoscopic urologic surgery at our department in 2014-2016. The perforation was intraperitoneal in only 5 (0.19) of all the patients. A percutaneous peritoneal drainage catheter with the guidance of ultrasonography was placed in four of the patients. Results: Conservative management by draining excess fluid with a drainage catheter percutaneously placed under close monitorization was successful in four out of five patients with urinary system perforation occurring during endoscopic urologic surgery. The remaining patient was treated successfully with open laparotomy because of fulminant evidence of peritonitis. Conclusion: Our findings and experience may suggest that conservative management of intraperitoneal urinary system perforations occurring during endoscopic urologic surgery by percutaneous drainage catheter under close monitorization is feasible in carefully selected patients.
