The 15-year-old had to undergo surgery after inserting a USB cable into his penis. The case took place in London, England and was published in a scientific article Review of “Kidney Case Reports”.
The young man, who did not want to be named, told the doctor that he had inserted the USB cable he used to charge cell phones into his urethra to measure the length of the penis. When he realized the cable was stuck in the joint, he tried to remove it manually, but the situation worsened, with both ends of the object stuck in the urethra.
The teenager went to a nearby hospital with her family, but manual or endoscopic removal efforts were in vain as there was a knot in the USB cable.
He was later referred to University College London Hospital where he has specialized treatment and kidney surgery. Physicians were required to perform a penoscrotal urethrostomy with an incision made between the patient’s genitals and anus. The stem was cut and removed through the external urethra.
The teen was discharged the day after surgery. He had to use subarachnoid catheters to urinate for two weeks. According to doctors, the young man will not have any sequels.
According to a scientific article published in the Urology Case Reports, the young man has no mental problems, and such cases are more common than one might think. “Experimental and sexual satisfaction are considered to be the main reasons for the retention of foreign bodies in the urethra and bladder,” says one part of the study.
