On occasion, difficulty will be encountered removing an indwelling urethral catheter. This may be as a consequence of failure of the catheter balloon to deflate. This article reviews the published data on managing the non-deflating Foley catheter balloon, and suggests an evidence-based sequence of interventions to deflate the catheter balloon.
