Thread: right inguinal exploration

    Default right inguinal exploration

    AAPC: Back to School
    right inguinal exploration, dissection of reservoir and replacement of penile prosthesis reservoir into the space of Retzius/retropubic space, and cystoscopy. I need some help with this one!

    Op Note reads: penile prosthesis was identified. The prosthesis was inflated and the amount of fluid in the reservoir was decreased. A right inguinal incision was performed via knife. Dissection through fascia was performed via electrocautery until the reservoir was identified. The capsule around the reservior was incised and this was freed up. This was thoroughly irrigated with antibiotic solution. Next, attention was developed at reopening the transversalis fascia and placing the reservoir into the retropubic space. Cystoscopy was also performed, after Foley catheter was unable to be placed in order to decompress the bladder. The patient had a bladder neck that had a high configuration.
