Objective: Securing urethral catheters for the optimal healing of and prevention of extravasation at the urethrovesical anastomosis. Method: This article describes the technique that we use to help secure Foley catheters or replace them if necessary. Conclusion: In the rare patients where disruption of the anastomosis or loss of the catheter prematurely takes place, the nylon suture can be used to replace the catheter without jeopardizing the anastomotic line.
