Figure 0003: Intraurethral foreign body (nail clippers).

Mentions: The intraurethral foreign body was extracted during open surgery under general anesthesia. A circumflex incision and degloving were performed under the preputial line. The urethral foreign body was removed with minimal damage, an incision approximately 1cm long in the medial line of the corpus spongiosum (Figs. 2, 3, 4). An 18F silicone catheter was inserted intraurethrally and the urethra was repaired with 4/0 vicryl. The skin was repaired with 4/0 rapid vicryl. The penis was covered with a compression bandage and the operation was concluded. There were no complications in the post-operative period. The patient was discharged with follow-up in the psychiatric clinic. The urethral catheter was removed 15-days post-operatively and first and third month follow-up revealed normal voiding.
