MAKHADI, S; MOENG, MS; GOVENDER, TR  and  LUNGA, ZS. Laparoscopic repair of a delayed traumatic bladder injury. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2021, vol.59, n.2, pp.67a-67b. ISSN 2078-5151.

Isolated bladder injuries from falls are not common; we report a laparoscopic bladder repair in a patient with delayed presentation. There are about 20 case reports of laparoscopic repair of traumatic bladder reported in the literature, but none with such a delayed presentation.1 We describe the technique of laparoscopic bladder repair. The delay in the presentation might have facilitated laparoscopic repair as it might have excluded bowel injuries.
