ABSTRACT: Fifty children underwent cystolithotomy during the five year period, January 1985-December 1989. These patients were divided into 2 groups I & II randomly. After removing the calculus, the cystotomy was closed in the conventional two layers with an indwelling Foley's catheter in group I. In the patients of group II, a three layered water-tight closure was done without any indwelling catheter after ruling out any outlet obstruction. There was no leak of urine in the post operative period in any of the patients. The three layered water-tight closure of the bladder in the absence of outlet obstruction facilitated early ambulation of the child, decreased the morbidity, hospital stay and expenditure.
