We report a case of ureteric injury during transvaginal oocyte retrieval (TVOR), which was identified immediately (on the operation table) and managed successfully in the same sitting. A 28-year-old woman with primary infertility underwent in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) in a private centre. Because of the policy of doing an ultrasonography post-procedure, she was diagnosed immediately with vaginal vault haematoma and ureteric injury. A double-J catheter was inserted under cystoscopic guidance. A major complication was averted by the timely diagnosis of ureteric injury and its appropriate management. To conclude, given the elective nature of TVOR and IVF, patients should be informed about all potential complications, including ureteric injury. Early diagnosis of complications (by knowing and anticipating potential risks of procedure) leads to efficient management by timely intervention.
