Urethral catheterisation is a bedside clinical skill which is usually acquired by clinicians during their internship or initial medical career. However, many clinicians lack confidence for male catheterisation afterward. This review article revisits the steps of safe urethral catheterisation with a review on male urethral applied anatomy, catheter design, common difficult catheterisation scenarios with pearls and pitfalls to tackle them and steps to remove a stuck urethral catheter from a urologist's perspective.
