Abstract

We present an interesting complication following the UroLift procedure: the development of a pelvic hematoma. This patient presented to the emergency department with pelvic pain, penile ecchymosis, and edema on postoperative day 4 following his UroLift procedure. A computed tomography scan revealed that his symptoms were due to the formation of a large pelvic hematoma. To our knowledge, pelvic hematoma formation following UroLift is a unique complication not previously described in the literature.
