  • Reservoir induced bladder rupture is a rare complication of inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) revision surgery. Our aim is to review the literature and describe our experience with this complication using two case reports that involved reusing an in-situ reservoir. In each case, an episode of gross hematuria indicated that a bladder rupture had occurred. From our experience, we propose ways to possibly avoid and if necessary, manage this rare complication.
