  • Review of techniques to remove a Foley catheter when the balloon does not deflate UROLOGY Daneshmand, S., Youssefzadeh, D., Skinner, E. C. 2002; 59 (1): 127-129


    Failure of a Foley balloon to deflate may be caused by a faulty valve mechanism, blockage of the inflation channel, or, rarely, crystallization of the fluid within the balloon. We discuss the approach to successful management and present a stepwise algorithm to remove the catheter safely and expeditiously.
