Postoperative Urinary Retention: Inability to urinate following surgery

Postoperative urinary retention (POUR) is a common yet often underestimated complication following surgery. It occurs when a patient is unable to empty their bladder adequately after a surgical procedure, leading to discomfort, potential complications, and prolonged hospital stays. Understanding the causes, symptoms, and management strategies for POUR is crucial for healthcare providers to ensure optimal patient outcomes.
