PAVAN, P.T et al. Surgical procedures used for post-traumatic neurogenic bladder in a cat: report case. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2011, vol.63, n.5, pp. 1093-1098. ISSN 0102-0935. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-09352011000500008.
A 1-year-old castrated crossbred male cat was referred to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital for evaluation of urinary retention associated with a subluxation at T12-T13 caused by a car accident. Urethral sphincter denervation by transection of hypogastric and pudendal nerves was performed to allow bladder emptying, but after three months post operation the cat had a urinary retention recurrence. Endoscopic urethral sphincterotomy was done resulting in urinary incontinence for four months.
